From the upgraded parka to essential polos and graphic tees, discover our top 10 pieces to consider buying now.
Best of all, they’re all comfy enough to wear around the house and with prices starting at £14 they won’t make too much of a dent on the bank balance either.
Brave the elements in an update on the classic khaki parka. Featuring roomy pockets and a borg-lined hood, it’s got warmth and style covered in equal measure. Layer with a lightweight gilet when the forecast is looking frosty.
We’ve all been keeping it casual lately, and chances are we won’t be putting away the tracksuit for a little while yet. So, if your day-in-day-out sweat tops are looking a little tired, this stripe funnel neck sweatshirt is sure to give things a refresh. Low on effort, but not on style.
Continuing on the sweats theme, a trend we’ve been seeing a lot of recently is graphic motifs and logos. If that’s more your style, then this Tokyo print sweatshirt is definitely worth a look. Great with jeans or joggers if you’re heading out, or throwing on with lounge shorts if you’re not.
Seriously, at this price it really is worth getting them in every colour. But we recommend you start with khaki. Why? They look the absolute business with clean white sneakers and a simple tee, knit or overshirt. This is basically your ready-for-anything weekend uniform. And even better, our chinos are made with organic cotton, which is kinder on the planet too.
Stripe khaki crew neck, £25
A crew-neck jumper should be part of every guy’s wardrobe, in our opinion. But to mix things up a bit we’re into this stripe khaki knit. A simple way to smarten up your look when working from home (feel free to keep it casual on the bottom half). It’ll also look great with dark chinos or black jeans when we finally get back to the pub.
Hands down, one of your best any-season updates. The ideal extra layer for everyday over a simple tee, it also acts as additional insulation under a heavier jacket in wintry weather. Come springtime, it’s the perfect alternative to your usual lightweight jacket, simply throw it on and go. The extra pockets in this khaki overshirt also give it that on-trend utility vibe, which we’re very much into right now.
For those of us still embarking on cold-weather commutes or daily walks, this is a must. Staying true to the ’90s Britpop parka aesthetic, we’re loving the extra hardware details and fur-lined hood on this coat. It ticks the boxes of good looks and serious practicality… we’re talking lightweight but super-warm padding and plenty of internal and external pockets. In other words, it’s got all bases covered.
This long-sleeved polo bridges the gap between casual and smart, and is great value too. Bonus. Wear it with navy chinos for a tonal look or try tan trousers for a subtle retro feel. Otherwise, mid-wash jeans are always a fail-safe option for easy off-duty style.
Spring’s still a little way off, and we’re not ready to let go of our winter accessories yet. Complete any cold-weather look with this khaki bobble hat, made with recycled polyester which has been created using repurposed waste plastic like plastic bottles.
Last but not least, let’s not forget about the polo shirt. The contrasting jacquard patterned trim and collar on this one make a step up from a staple, while still being easy enough to wear all the time. There’s always room for one more polo shirt in the wardrobe if you ask us, and this is the one to buy now.
