Up until a few days ago, we were walking around in short sleeves, sandal-clad with sunnies on our heads… fast forward a week and we’re raiding the ‘jeans section’ in our wardrobes (come on, we all have one), and EVEN casting an eye over the dust-covered knitwear shelf! You know what this means, we’re on the homestretch to autumn… time to get our closets in check!
To tackle that awkward stage between summer and autumn, we enlisted the help of Simon Glazin – the super stylish man behind fashion and showbiz blog – ‘The Very Simon G‘.
In this look, the main focus is the Double Breasted Mac - a timeless piece that’s perfectly practical in sudden downpours (as of course, is this umbrella!). We love how Simon’s teamed this Colourblock Turtle Neck with these Blue Check Skinny Suit Trousers. It’s so easy to achieve a tailored look without being too formal. Don’t be afraid to mix suit trousers with fine knits this autumn – it goes a long way to make your transition to the cooler months ALL the more stylish.
Monk Strap Shoes are a quirky addition to the outfit, and these ones give a nod to the chunky shoe trend which is BIG for men this season. Finally, a pair of Mirrored Aviators add a whole lotta attitude to this look… plus, we’ve been living in ours ALL summer – we’re not about to give them up just yet!
