Six autumn/winter essentials for the well-dressed man
As the time comes to start reaching for garments made from more substantial materials and creating layered looks becomes key to keeping the cold weather at bay, we are here to take you through six style essentials that no autumn/winter wardrobe is complete without.
A knitted sweater
A pullover sweater or jumper is one of the most versatile pieces you can introduce into your autumn/winter rotation. They can be worn alone or over a classic Lyle & Scott T-shirt for those warmer autumn days that only have a slight chill in the air. Pullover jumpers can also be worn over crisp shirts, such as those in the Lyle & Scott selection at https://www.ejmenswear.com/men/lyle-scott, for a cool smart-casual look suited to myriad occasions.
In addition to being a key layering piece, you can have so much fun with scarves. From simple block colours to styles with intricate patterns and embellishments, throwing on a scarf can instantly elevate an ensemble and make you look much more put-together.
A leather jacket
A quality leather jacket will sit in your closet for years to come and will improve with age as it develops a unique patina that will give it additional character. Go easy on the hardware to ensure your leather jacket has a timeless look and you will be wearing it every autumn/winter well into the future.
A pair of boots
From simple leather Chelsea boots to lace-up styles with a distinctly utilitarian vibe, now is the time to invest in a pair of quality boots in a colour that can be worn with a variety of different ensembles. Boots can be worn with jeans for the ultimate casual look or with wool trousers and chinos to add an element of cool to your go-to dressy outfits.
A pair of cords
Corduroy trousers are something that will never go out of style; what’s more, they are so much warmer than jeans. Why not try ditching the denim for the next few months and upgrade your look this season with a rich green or burgundy pair of cords?
A wool hat
Whether you want to opt for a knitted bobble hat for those laid-back weekends running errands or a flat cap to give additional flair to your evening attire, this is the season to experiment with headwear.
