Cheap designer clothes: the essentials
It is likely that you are one of two types of people when it comes to your wardrobe – either it is packed to the rafters with barely any room for new items of clothing or you are stuck in a bit of a rut with the same style or colour options to choose from each day. Whichever type you are, a wardrobe overhaul is never a bad idea, particularly when there are some great cheap designer clothes options out there. The only question to ask is which items are must-haves?
The basics that everyone should own
Every man needs that everyday T-shirt that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Whilst there are plenty of options with big brand names and designs, finding a simple T-shirt that gives you complete versatility is the way to go. Look for plain colours and small logos to give you the best chance of being able to wear your new favourite T-shirt with almost anything. Brands such as Boss and Lyle and Scott do this well, so check out their range of T-shirts for your first essential wardrobe item.
A hoodie is the perfect comfort piece of clothing. Whether you are going for a run, out for lunch or having a lazy day in, the hoodie is the perfect choice that everyone should own. There are several options to choose from to make it more personal to your taste – from zip-ups to toggles, large pockets and big logos, there is something to suit everyone. Wear your hoodie as part of an everyday casual outfit or utilise the zip-up option for a comfortable piece of outerwear when a coat is too much.
A shirt should be a staple piece of clothing in every man’s wardrobe, even if you are not required to wear one for work. There are plenty of choices available to suit the occasion, from a wedding to a night out on the town. Keep it casual with a short-sleeved checked button-up or go for a more versatile option with a long-sleeved linen shirt. The shirt is one item of clothing that you can tailor to your personality – whether you prefer to keep it smart or want to make a statement in florals, a quality designer shirt should always be hanging in your wardrobe. Similarly, a polo shirt should feature due to its ability to create the perfect smart/casual ensemble.
A good pair of chinos can make the right statement, whether you are spending a long day at the office or meeting friends for drinks. Chinos are the perfect choice when jeans and joggers are too casual yet smart trousers are too formal; what’s more, they can be incredibly comfortable when the fit is right.
Finding a quality coat is the most important winter essential when the weather begins to get colder. With the classic wet British weather a certainty, look for a waterproof jacket to keep you warm and dry. With the cheap designer clothes on offer, you will be sure to find a style and colour to suit you. You should also look for an option that is guaranteed to keep you toasty, such as a padded bubble jacket or wool coat.
You can’t beat a good jumper when the weather is cold and blustery. From the chunky knit to the more versatile fine knit jumper, you can find the perfect roll-neck, V-neck or crew-neck option to keep you cosy.
Whether you are packing for a holiday abroad or just want to make the most of the summer sun in the paddling pool in your garden, a good pair of swimming shorts is essential. No one wants to see you parading in your budgie smugglers, so finding a style that looks and feels comfortable is important. Even if you are usually quite reserved with your clothing choices, you can use swim shorts as the perfect opportunity to be more daring. You will find plenty of fun and colourful designs on offer, so finding a pair to suit will be a breeze.
When the sun comes out, grab your sunglasses to enjoy the weather and protect your eyes. With styles to suit all face shapes, you can find some amazing options that look and feel designer. Take a look at the Tom Ford range for some of the most stylish sunglasses around.
