As many men out there will know it can be a tricky, even slightly nervy task updating your wardrobe and grooming regime for the Autumn season. What products to try, will they work for my skin or do I suit this colour? It can all be very bamboozling indeed. Thankfully, Silverburn is here help as it hosts its first ever menswear style event for those who are looking to update their wardrobe and skincare routine this season.
Menswear YOUR5 will showcase the latest fashion and grooming trends available within Silverburn. During the event, which runs on Thursday 27th and Friday 28thSeptember, customers will be offered free bespoke styling sessions from resident fashion experts on the must-have items from the upcoming season, such as relaxed-fit corduroy trousers, chunky knits and statement puffer jackets. No need to make an appointment beforehand.
In order to get a feel for some of the seasons key items, I popped along to Silverburn ahead of the big event to put together three outfits that encapsulate the autumnal trends.
The smart, dapper look is one that we all wear at some point during the week, at weekends or to a special event. For an outfit that ticks all the boxes, I headed straight for centre favourite Remus Uomo. From the moment I arrived in store, the customer service was fantastic, with the staff extremely knowledgeable about the seasonal pieces in-store. After giving me a brilliant range of options and sizes to ensure the best fit, I settled on a light grey wool suit with a contrasting double-breasted wool waistcoat, white shirt and black shoes. The superior quality of Remus Uomos garments, and the weighty texture of the wool are ideal for when the colder weather sets in.
Smart casual is probably one of my preferred styles, as it can be easily adapted for a range of social occasions. This was an outfit I had a lot of fun building thanks to the abundance of options available in Silverburn. To kick things off, I visited River Island where I picked up a classic roll neck and dark blue chinos. To add a layer of warmth I paired these with an olive green gilet from Next. Completing the look and adding an element of durability, I selected a pair of chunky Grenson boots from Flannels. For me this outfit works well on so many levels. The roll neck and gilet are not only functional, keeping you warm and cosy, but they also draw upon the Autumn colours you see outdoors. I wore the chinos slightly rolled up to show off the boots with their brogue finish. Perfect for the change in seasons.
My final outfit that I put together was casual sportswear, the ideal choice for wearing at home, heading to the gym or wandering around the shops. When looking for a variety of casual items to choose from, JD Sports instantly popped into my head. A store jam packed with high quality pieces, it is easily one of the best destinations within Silverburn. For this look I kept it very classic, going all out in Adidas track pants with matching zip top, cotton t-shirt and trainers. A brand synonymous with high quality garments, I loved the fit of the tracksuit, sitting close to the skin yet without sacrificing any comfort. The same can be said for the t-shirt, extremely comfortable with a retro aura about it, with the signature three stripes detailed on the sleeves. The tennis inspired, fresh white Adidas Continental 80 trainers capped off the look perfectly.
