The biggest advantage of a denim jacket is its layering potential. This is just as good in summer, on days when you still need a little extra heat, as it is in the colder months. For something classic, you’ll be hard-pressed to go wrong at Levi’s, while chic options abound at Parisian brand APC. Pair it with a hoodie and black jeans and you’re ready to go.
A gray single-breasted suit
A good option for winter (and when you’re resting your navy blue), a gray single-breasted suit is as stylish as it is easy to absorb into your wardrobe. This color is perfect for the office and an easy change of accessories (knitted tie instead of silk, for example) makes it a smart choice for a wedding too.
Whether it’s barbecues or pub gardens, you can be as “in” the cropped shorts trend as you want, but there’s nothing more reliable than the chino variety. Go for a neutral colourway, like beige, and the styling possibilities are virtually endless, whether you want to wear trainers with knee-high socks or espadrilles.
Bespoke swim shorts
The classic drawstring shorts are great at the beach, but for all those more sophisticated evenings by the water – you know, all those superyachts, the rooftops of Soho House and pool parties in the Hollywood Hills on your social calendar – something more suitable is the cheeky way. They are infinitely sexier and can be worn just as well as regular shorts on particularly hot summer days.
