With spring in full flow and summer only around the corner, it’s time to stock your wardrobe with all the necessary basics to see you through the season in style. To help, we’ve highlighted the key pieces you should be investing in for the sunnier times ahead.
Airy and super breathable, a linen shirt is ideal for keeping comfortable in the heat. And if things turn nippy? The lightweight construction also means it can be easily layered underneath various other garments – such as a jumper or jacket – without adding any unnecessary bulk. Simply pair with chinos and loafers for a casual weekend look.
A warm-weather alternative to your usual go-to jeans, the classic chinos are a must-have for every stylish gent. Equally versatile for both formal and casual occasions, they will prove an invaluable addition to your new-season wardrobe. To create an outfit, team yours with a classic polo shirt and loafers for Sunday lunch, or with a button-down shirt, jacket and brogues for dinner with the in-laws.
Short Sleeve Shirt
Not only stylish, but highly practical, the short-sleeved shirt will keep you cool whilst still looking presentable. A must-have for smart-casual soirees, it’ll be your favourite formal piece come the end of spring. For a fail-safe ensemble, we suggest teaming yours with chinos and a pair of classic loafers.
When the weather turns for the better, a heavy wool blazer isn’t going to be appropriate. Instead, invest in a lightweight linen jacket and reap the benefits. Ideal for garden parties and summer weddings (amongst other seasonal events), it’s guaranteed to receive endless compliments. Dress yours up with a crisp white shirt, trousers and shoes, or down with chinos, a button-down shirt and chukka boots.
The ultimate menswear staple, the polo shirt will become your go-to for any spring/summer event. Whether you’re off to a friend’s BBQ or taking a walk in the country, a crisp new polo will instantly revive your casual contingent. To create a look to be proud of, keep things simple by pairing yours with some timeless chino shorts and casual footwear.
