When it comes to layering, nothing works harder in transitional seasons than a gilet. This autumn/winter, our navy gilet is padded enough for just the right amount of added warmth, and lightweight enough to wear under or over pretty much anything. For a smart-casual look, try styling it underneath a checked suit, and for those off-duty days, wear it over a merino roll-neck jumper in a tonal hue.
Knitwear is one of the best things about colder months. It’s cosy, versatile, and adding just one or two new pieces to last year’s wardrobe can instantly update it. This navy polo neck, made with merino wool, is one we know you’ll reach for again and again. Not only is it super soft and lightweight, but it’ll keep up with you throughout the week. Wear it on its own with a pair of chinos, or layer it under a flannel blazer for another smart-casual look.
With the best autumn pieces, you’ll get that ideal combo of form and function, so you’ll both look and feel great. That means you can put together loads of outfits that are perfect for whatever you’ve got on at the weekend. Our chunky cable roll-neck jumper is a great example. It’s made with temperature-regulating lambswool blended with shape-retaining fibres, so it’ll bounce back, season after season. Then, this fig overshirt and jogger set is like elevated, autumn-ready sweats. Reach for it when you’re headed somewhere laid back, like a Sunday roast or a game night.
Whatever pieces you decide to add to your wardrobe this fall, follow Fred’s lead and choose them for both quality and versatility. Hitting both those marks means you’ll want to wear them again and again, and not just this year.
