With January behind you and spring on its way, it’s almost time to pack away those heavy winter coats and tweak your style to suit the warmer weather. Now we’re not talking a complete overhaul here. All you need is these 5 key fashion pieces to refresh your wardrobe. Mankind have teamed up with Burtons Menswear to bring your some style upgrades for your wardrobe this season.
Cover all bases and be prepared for unpredictable weather with this season’s short jacket. Great for throwing over your jumper on chilly spring mornings, the great range of styles available now means, you’re sure to find a style to suit your personality.
You could always go for a classic, such as a bomber jacket or Harrington jacket. These styles are easy to wear; why not team your short jacket casually at the weekend with jeans? Or you could wear over a smart shirt when you head out in the evening.
Tough, stylish and versatile, a good pair of jeans is a must in every man’s wardrobe and since it’s spring, stick to the mantra ‘out with the old and in with the new’ and re-evaluate your denim inventory.
If you’re not sure about fit, a classic slim pair of jeans is a good choice as they are smart enough to wear to work (dress code permitting). Wear with a blazer, smart shirt, desert boots and belt to take you from work to the bar.
Get on the right track this spring with this season’s modern jersey. And we’re not just talking scruffy joggers and sweatshirt. Thanks to crafted details such as hidden pockets and clever tapering, those key gym pieces have been reinvented with a sharper and smarter edge. So don’t sweat it and take your off-duty style up a notch by teaming your hoodie with jeans and a t-shirt at the weekend or a contrasting pair of joggers in your downtime.
From the waffle knits to mid-gauge textured crew neck, this season is all about the textured knit. Put simply, it’s a jumper or cardigan crafted from different knitting techniques and textures. Great for those fresh spring mornings, team with a pair of vintage-wash jeans and plimsolls or under your smart blazer when you head to work.
When it comes to suits, keep it simple and understated this season and if you don’t own one already, a dark blue or grey suit is a worthy investment. Be boardroom ready by teaming with a crisp white shirt and contrasting tie. When the temperature drops, you could wear a jumper under your suit or try a 3-piece, then you can take off the jacket and still look smart in the office.
