The 24 staple pieces every man needs in his wardrobe this spring

Topman AW16

Mens fashion has come on leaps and bounds recently and nowadays Men take their style just as seriously as women, and rightly so.

We’ve created a simple checklist of the staple items you need in your wardrobe this spring, to stay on trend where ever you are
Joggers

Yes, joggers are a great casual easy trouser for men to wear, they can be worn with denim jackets and t-shirts or just a simple hoodie. Paired with loafers or trainers, this staple piece is really versatile to wear at home or a casual Saturday in town.

Shirts

An obvious staple here, they can be worn with jeans for a weekend look, or with trousers and smart shoes for work or formal days. This Zara Madeira collar shirt is perfect for work and play.

The Wool Coat

This style of coat can finish off a smart casual look perfectly, they come in all kinds of colours and lengths but finding the perfect one can take time as it should fit well and also suit your style. Once you own one you’ll have it forever, so don’t be afraid to invest a bit more cash.

Watches

A bit of arm candy is always a nice way to accessorise an outfit. You can go for an oversized faced one like this one from River Island or keep it classic and clean with a simple leather strap.

Jackets

Whether it’s denim, leather, a bomber or a puffer a jacket is the way to go this spring, especially as the weather starts to get warmer.

Bags

A man-bag, surely not? Some men hate the idea of having a bag when they don’t need to, but they are a big hit this season on the catwalk. A brightly coloured backpack such as this Topman one is great to add colour.

Jeans

Jeans are a must-have for you guys who aren’t into joggers or trousers. Whether they are skinny, ripped, or black they will all look great with anything, they are the true versatile piece.

Shoes, Trainers and Boots

So now you’ve got your body dressed, it’s time to step into footwear. Boots are a stylish way to amp up your smart casual looks, or opt for trainers for the ultimate streetwear staple. Another alternative is a loafer, they are a really cool edgy way to bring attention to your feet, we are loving these grey ones from River Island.
