Make this timeless wardrobe staple your own with our on-trend styling suggestions, from teaming a flannel shirt with double denim to layering with a hoodie
You may consider double denim a styling hack for the sartorially adventurous, but trust us, layering a checked overshirt over a denim shirt teamed with jeans is a fresh and failsafe take on everyday dressing. The trick is to pick contrasting shades of denim to keep the look ultra wearable. Choose a light denim shirt and dark-wash jeans. We’re big fans of these straight-leg jeans, which feature our water-repellent Stormwear technology, so you’ll spend less time in soggy denim if you get caught in the rain. Complete the outfit with suede Chelsea boots for a premium finishing touch on crisp, sunny days. An easy autumn outfit, sorted.
Chillier days call for much-needed extra warmth. Keep things interesting by layering a checked shirt over a half-zip sweater. An overshirt in autumnal dark khaki looks great worn over a grey marl jumper. Lean into this season’s trend for practical clothing by adding cargo trousers and boots or keep it classic with denim. When the weather gets really icy, add a hooded puffer jacket. Light padding and Thermowarmth technology mean it won’t feel heavy while insulating you from the cold, making it perfect for every occasion, from the commute to action-packed weekends.
Go for maximum comfort without compromising on style by layering an overshirt over a hooded jumper. Dress up a humble hoodie on off-duty days by adding a checked overshirt in a similar hue. We’ll be wearing this cotton-blend overshirt, which is made from a warm double-faced fabric ideal for cooler weather, with a pure cotton hoodie. For super-casual plans, opt for soft joggers, swapping them with chinos when you need to add some polish to your look. An outfit that’s comfy as loungewear but smart enough to leave the house in? That’s a winner in our book.
