The FashionBeans Edit
Towa 2-in-1 Workwear Jacket
There’s a classic American vibe to this workwear jacket, though it’s designed to plan for the inclement British weather. Fastened or open, it gives two distinct looks. Chest and side pockets make it practical as well as stylish and it comes with a detachable gilet for chillier days.
Breezie Straight Leg Jeans
It’s harder than it should be to find a pair of no-nonsense, straight-up (but also good quality) blue jeans. Which is why you need these Breezie straight leg jeans – the ultimate item for effortless smart-casual style. The straight fit and blue wash will match just about everything else in your wardrobe.
Flowerz Floral Cotton Shirt
Here’s a piece that achieves something rare: a smart shirt that makes a statement. Putting a loud floral print onto a slim fit cotton shirt is always a bold move, but the just-restrained-enough palette means it’ll look fantastic with trousers, shorts or denim, making this a hugely versatile addition to your summer look.
Tech Knitted Holdall
Ted Baker accessorises the latest spring-summer collection with this holdall – it’s an old school sports bag brought up to date with a contemporary knitted finish. The yellow shade is stand-out but refined, too. Choose between handles for everyday carrying or a detachable shoulder strap. Either way, you won’t lose it on the train’s luggage rack.
Selshor Cotton Chino Shorts
Yes, it’s already time to start thinking about what shorts style to go with this year. Our thinking? Let’s not do beige chino styles for the 15th year in a row. These pink options give you a point of difference while still hitting the sweet spot in the smart-casual spectrum to ensure you’ll get lots of wear from them. They’ll look great with a crisp white shirt or dark fitted T-shirt.
Flydebt Debonair Wool Check Trousers
Here’s an unbeatable look from the more formal end of Ted Baker’s new collection – an impeccably cut pair of check wool trousers. The check is finely detailed, so it’s subtle – but if you know, you know. For the full look, there’s also a matching jacket available to add a little refinement to your work wardrobe.
Sway Printed Bomber Jacket
The bomber jacket is one of those youth culture style items that never goes out of date. Still, Ted Baker has upgraded the traditional look with this pared-back-but-modern take. It has a subtle all-over leaf print with a baseball-style neck and varsity-look striped cuffs and waistband.
Thaiel Slim Fit Trousers
These trousers are for a more laidback style – perfect for both a day in the office or a night on the town (you could always rolls the hems for a more casual finish). However you wear them, there’s a contemporary feel with the flat front and slim fit.
Vardy Cotton Blend Polo Shirt
The polo shirt returns for another season of summertime smarts – a staple of any man’s collection of trusty all-rounders. This Vardy edition has a chest pocket and added detail inside the collar. For the man who wants to maintain that classic and classy look when he’s off-duty.
Salza Suede Zip Through Jacket
You know where you are buying the big winter coat. But the summertime jacket is always a conundrum – you have to consider about 10 different looks and garments it needs to be worn alongside. This beautiful and soft suede option is wardrobe paracetamol, though. No headaches here. It’ll take you from spring to autumn with a rich and textured chestnut brown that we’d be happy wearing every day it doesn’t rain.
