If, like us, you've been fooled by the recent sunshine, here's a reminder: last summer's shorts still have the tags on. So next pay day, we¹ll be thinking about buying clothes we can wear all year round.

Lee Douros, Menswear Buyer at My-Wardrobe.com, gives us his insider tips on what to blow your hard earned cash on.

 

1/ Ray Ban Brown Classic Tortoishell Wayfarer £117

The Wayfarer is definitely here to stay. Sunshine is not the only reason to wear shades, a blinding hangover will do.

 

2/ Helmut Lang Grey Cashmere Mix Crew Knit £203

This simple, light knit is understated and quietly smart; under a suit jacket or just with jeans, this is a good all-rounder whatever the occasion.

 

3/ APC Check Printed Summer Scarf £33

This scarf taps into the ubiquitous check trend but is subtle enough to remain in your daily wardrobe for seasons more.

 

4/ Nudie Big Bengt Relaxed Heavy Dry Jeans £84

A new fit from Swedish denim masters, Nudie Jeans. The Big Bengt has a generous, relaxed upper half, which tapers at the hem. This makes the jean a version of the carrot-shape fit which is touted as the shape of the season, but easier to wear for most shapes than others brands' incarnations.

 

5/ Barbour - Black Coated Linen International Jacket £219

Functional, classic design with Heritage credentials. The International Jacket has been in production since 1936 but has lost some of the bulk and boasts an updated slimmer fit.
