A beautifully tailored printed shirt can be given that laidback rework when layered over a casual tee and jeans.

Lumber Jackets Equal Must-have for Autumn

Who knew that the good old lumber jacket would make a huge comeback as a wardrobe must for men and women this autumn? But it is so. Embrace its comfort and warmth and just add some denim for authenticity. Part Two and Selected Homme tick this trend in The Store.

One-stop Dresses Make Everything Easy

Dresses are the one-stop style option for an easy autumn day. Just throw on, add boots, layer up or layer under if necessary, and go. That's why we just can't get enough of a statement dress.

Sharp Shirting

So many men fall into the trap of just throwing on a shirt. Don't be that man. Choose a statement shirt that makes your look less cutting hedge and more cutting edge. Choose a bold repeat pattern or print.

Bring on the Blazer

So there is always a need for a dress up option in a man's wardrobe but sometimes that option should be luxurious without the uptightness of a full-on tailored jacket. So wise men of autumn 21 - opt for a softer tailored jacket that can be thrown on over a knit.

Jason wears: Selected Homme Navy/Bone Knit Crew Neck , £45.00, and Vedoneire Linen Cotton Blazer in Midnight, £155.

Statement Dressing

Finally out, out? Meet friends you haven't seen Zoom with a look that addresses the nation. Be bold. We haven't been able to dress up so go for it. Clash if you want. Or just make it monochrome.

Grace wears: Blank Maria Shirt, £105, Blank Sigrid Skirt, £95.00 and Blank Ebba Jacket Beige, £175.00, and Selected Femme Boots, £140.00.
