10 Extremely 2019 Items To Freshen Up Your Wardrobe
New year, new you. Or so says every simpering segment on daytime TV. But, whether you like it or not, there's some truth to the 15 minutes slotted between 'Sex With The Supernatural' and 'Help! I Can't Stop Eating Batteries'—especially if you apply it to your wardrobe.
As the rules of menswear relax at large, there's a wider choice of upgrades for 2019. And we've listed all the stuff that you need below.
1| A Denim Jacket
Denim jackets have hit a sweet spot in 2019. This, from AMI, comes in a slimline shape to slot under an overcoat, or just fly in tandem with a T-shirt for warmer times. AMI Point Collar Denim Jacket, matchesfashion.com
2| An Anorak
Anoraks are also high on the fashion agenda in 2019, with labels like Aimé Leon Dore infusing them with a hint of streetwear. Aimé Leon Dore Colour Block Jacket, mrporter.com
3| A Snake Print Tie
Menswear is taking a gamble on big mafioso 'I'll fill your boots with concrete' tailoring of late, and the easiest way to sign-up is with your neckwear—Tom Ford's printed snake silk tie should do the trick. Tom Ford Snake Silk Tie, tomford.co.uk
4| A Little Bit Of Purple
From Paul Smith to Prada, a purple flash was one of the themes of the runway in January. Here's a simple and versatile way to work the same into your wardrobe, from Albam. Albam Classic T-Shirt, endclothing.com
5| A Wall Street-Worthy Suit
The endless appetite for all things nineties continues. For your next suit, go for big lapels, a wider fit, and, preferably, a loud and proud pinstripe. Suitsupply Lazio Stripe Suit, suitsupply.com
6| Some Easy-To-Slip-On Boots (Preferably With A Chunky Sole)
Thicker soled, slip-on boots are well-paired with pretty much anything in your wardrobe, and will give your outfit a contemporary stamp of approval. COS Chunky Sole Leather Boots, cosstores.com
7| Some Boxwork
Jacquemus and Moncler 2 1952 were but two labels to flex the whole patchwork thing. Marni's subtle knit allows for a look that plays within the lines. Marni Textured Cotton Sweater, matchesfashion.com
8| A Fleece Zip-Up
Oh, how we laughed at those kids who genuinely, actually enjoyed maths at school. But the joke is on us, apparently, as fleece zip-ups refuse to budge. Wear a sportswear iteration to slot with a more classic overcoat. Nike Shell-Trimmed Fleece Half-Zip Sweatshirt, mrporter.com
9| Some Wider Leg Trousers
Rarely does style and comfort go hand-in-hand. But that's changing. The rise of the skateboarding trouser has seen legs widen at large, meaning you can add a few inches to the thigh for a current (and more pleasant) outfit. YMC Hand Me Down Trouser, youmustcreate.com
10| On-Trend Trainers
Alexander McQueen's Italian-made kicks—something of a sleeper hit in the world of streetwear—have managed to imbue on-trend oversized soles with a minimalist streak. Heel Tab Wedge Sole Sneaker, endclothing.com
