For decades, denim has been man’s best fashion friend and it’s set to be
a key trend in 2016, too. A straightforward, retro classic shape is the next logical step in your graduation from the skinny jeans that have served you so well – pin roll them for a modern spin. Or, try super wide-leg jeans – they're more maverick than most but, if you’re looking to stay a sartorial step ahead this year, they’re a perfect fit. Add a pair of Converse or Stan Smiths to complete your new look.
If you've not picked up a pair of
chinos before, now might be the perfect time to feel the magnificent versatility that these basics will bring to your wardrobe. You may think they're something your dad might rock but you'll find they’re an easy way to experiment with colour, as this camel pair proves nicely. If you need something smarter, there’s a lot to be learnt from the suave lads of Savile Row and a pair of tailored trousers exude effortless style. Don't just restrict them to evening attire, though – with the simple addition of trainers and a tee, a sleek, slim pair will see you sail through 2016.
Finally, expanding your style repertoire doesn’t have to mean waving goodbye to comfort. Thanks to the infinite influence of
Mr Kanye West, street-ready pieces now carry serious fashion kudos. Team a pair of reworked joggers with an oversized sweatshirt to demonstrate your insider approach to a leisure classic.
