Statement cardigans

Yes, statement cardigans for men are a thing this season, including bright patterns and animal prints. This item is easy to wear and brightens up the rest of your outfit with minimal effort.

Rugby shirts

You no longer need a public school education nor a love of rugger to sport this simple, unfussy sports top. Rugby shirts are comfortable, breathable and long-sleeved making them ideal for autumn. For those of us that still have a rugby top at the back of our wardrobe from the last time around (think late nineties), then this really is a trend you can achieve with no effort.

Student chic

The runways for AW19 were full of vintage student outerwear. It doesn’t really matter which era you go for, but aim for a piece that was iconic to that decade, such as a 1960s duffle or a 1980s leather jacket. The easiest way to achieve this look? Have a rummage in your dad’s wardrobe.

Technical trainers


Tech trainers continue to dominate the sneaker market. Thanks to having been a big trend for some time now, it’s easy to find discounted tech trainers despite the fact they are high fashion. Keep ’em clean for a fresh look and wear them both for sport and leisure, and if you can get away with it, work too. A simple. stylist footwear solution for everyday.

Rock god

The rock god style is hot this year, but sadly it usually takes a bit of work. Make it easier for yourself by opting for an existing pair of skinny black jeans (rather than buying a new pair of leather or leopard print ones) and simply purchase a new shirt, either animal print or dark tonal will complete the look. Look out for designer items including Farah shirts which are available at https://www.ejmenswear.com/men/farah.

Why work hard to achieve autumn’s trends when you can do it with minimal effort? Working with items you already own and adding the odd statement shirt or cardigan, it’s easy to rock these men’s trends over the coming months.
