Staples are the essential pieces that we all need in our wardrobe, all year round. They are traditionally unfussy, highly wearable and “classic menswear” due to the fact that we all probably have them, although we rarely appreciate how important they are as the building blocks in our wardrobes.
Finding the right staples can be very difficult so naturally, we were thrilled to hear that River Island has just released their capsule collection of definitive style staples. New for autumn, the 38 piece collection features clothes, accessories and footwear to help you nail contemporary dressing. Here’s a look at some of the key pieces from the new collection.
The Oxford shirt
So classic and so contemporary at the same time – nothing beats a good white shirt and we completely agree with River Island that the Ivy League style Oxford shirt is one that every man should have in their wardrobe.
If you haven’t already got a great pair of blue jeans in your wardrobe then shame on you. Should you need a new pair, we recommend getting these dark, slim cut jeans from the new River Island collection.
Perhaps the most essential item for the coming spell of coldness is a great coat. Camel is back in a big way so this modern coat, at a friendly high street price is a great investment. It’s made from a luxurious brushed wool mix fabric and features a contemporary notch lapel. Wear with the Oxford shirt for added dapper points.
All men should have a pair of great white sneakers. There are so, so many high end versions available now that we think you should brush them all aside for these River Island ones. The minimal design is bang on trend and will keep you looking fresh and clean all winter long.
