Autumn is in full swing and it feels as though winter is only around the corner. It’s the perfect time to start updating your menswear collection to reflect the change in weather, offering the perfect transitional pieces to see you through until spring. From traditional knitwear to statement jackets, here are just 5 of the best AW20 menswear styles.
Roll neck jumper
Roll neck jumpers, also sometimes known as turtlenecks, have been a popular style for decades when it comes to the wintry weather. They were an essential style for fishermen, who had to battle the elements to do their job. Now, they are a statement style in contemporary fashion.
This season, roll neck jumpers will be making a comeback, providing a versatile design for any occasion. With seasonal colours such as oxblood red, khaki, navy blue and mustard yellow, who said winter style had to be dull?
Style your collection of roll neck jumpers with jeans or smart trousers and you’re good to go.
Knitted polo shirt
Of course, there’s more to autumn and winter than knitwear. Keep your collection versatile with polo shirts, perfect for layering and looking as smart or as casual as you need. With a classic collar and button up design, knitted polo shirts offer something a little more substantial than your average t-shirt.
Look for colour block styles, stripe detail or even check polo shirts for a seasonal look, and opt for a range of both short and long sleeve styles that are great for matching the weather outside.
For when the weather really does turn miserable and you need both comfort and style, a fleece hoodie will be your essential AW20 piece this year. With a cosy fleece material and traditional style, hoodies of this kind are perfect for throwing on whether you’re heading out or staying in.
Look for styles with classic kangaroo pockets and drawstrings at the hood, with easy to wear colours like blue marl, grey or black.
A transitional jacket is a must-have for this time of year, so look out for styles that can see you through autumn and winter but also into spring. An aviator jacket fits this description perfectly, complete with its warm construction but stylish exterior.
An aviator jacket is usually finished off perfectly with a Sherpa detail collar and cuffs, creating a real wintry look without compromising on appearance. Look out for grey, black or tan suede for statement look that can look great with jeans or a smarter attire.
When the miserable weather really does arrive, you’ll want the right footwear to tackle it in. Boots are a must-have for autumn and winter, giving any outfit a rugged, seasonal look. Lace-up or pull-on boots are easy too style, from Chelsea boots to hiker-style boots.
Keep it simple with shades of brown or black, as they’ll be most wearable with the rest of your collection.
