It’s been a while. but here are some more picks from the high street!

1) Green Marl Swallow Print Sweatshirt from Topman 

Birds are everywhere at the moment, both literally and figuratively. They can be seen in most stores and one even just flew straight into my window. Jokes aside, this is one sweatshirt you should own. It comes in a range of colours, but my favourite is this greeny-grey marl.









2) Berry Red Check Shirt from River Island

Check shirts are here to stay. They’re not going anywhere, so make your inner lumberjack happy and get a few in different colours. They’re a versatile wardrobe staple that can be dressed up for a night out. or kept casual for a summer barbecue. This shirt from River Island is a great piece to start with as the dark red will look stylish all year round.









3) Slim Fit Tweed Blazer from ASOSTweed blazers are another perennial favourite that can carry your from autumn all the way to spring (and sometimes summer as well if you live in Britain). This blazer from ASOS has a great cut and can be worn with a range of bottoms to change-up your look.









4) Woven Collarless Shirt from H&M Another shirt, this time from H&M, featuring a partially buttoned front and no collar which lends it a timeless quality. Wear now with chinos and boat shoes, or in a few months with jeans and a cardigan. Either way, wear it.









5) Hudson ‘Tyska’ Shoes from Topman Back to Topman for the last of this weeks top buys. These shoes are bang on trend and are the perfect way to finish off any summer outfit. They’re versatile enough to be worn with chinos or shorts and kick any look up a notch.

Top Buys 18/08/2011

Hello folks! Here are this weeks top buys. Given the current miserable weather, I thought it would be good to look ahead to some of the key pieces for the wetter weather this Autumn.

1) Asos Shooting Patches Crew Neck Jumper

  This jumper is right on trend with it’s hunting-esque detailing. If you only buy one piece from this trend this season, make sure it’s this jumper!










2) Topman Brown School Satchel 


Every man needs a bag – make sure yours is a satchel this Autumn. There’s going to be a heavy vintage vibe throughout the season and this satchel by Topman will take any outfit from drab to ‘Don Draper’ in seconds.









3) Topman Blue Stitch Crew Neck Jumper 

  Another great piece from the Topman Ltd collection, this jumper embodies the trend for strong colours this season. Add a pair of cords and you have a winning outfit.










4) New Look Short Button Mac

Autumn brings that nastily awkward weather that’s too warm for a coat, but not cool enough to go without that extra layer on top. New Look has the perfect solution with this navy blue short mac. It brings to mind this  Burberry mac from a couple of months ago. On trend and reasonably priced, this mac is a must!









5) River Island Burgundy Block Stripe T-shirt 

Last but not least, this T-shirt from River Island is the perfect piece for the current whether. It can be worn solo, or with a cardigan/ mac on top to fend off the rain. The strong but muted colours will make sure you’re noticed for the right reasons. Not so sure about the pocket though…









These are just my top picks – what are yours?
