As Autumn turns into winter, it means Christmas is just around the corner and therefore so is the party season!
For men, it can often be a bit tricky to find the right pieces that will take you from Autumn to the festive season, and that you can also wear for all those parties.
Luckily, we’ve found a number of smart buys that are versatile enough to keep you warm when the weather gets chilly, while also looking smart enough to take you from day to night for any celebratory occasion.

When it comes to versatile fashion, the key is to go for pieces that are high quality. They might be more of an investment and cost more than you might usually expect to spend on a coat or a jacket, for example, but they are much more likely to last longer and retain their quality over the years.
Picking colours that will complement others is another good tip. For instance, a grey coat can look both smart and casual, and will go well with a dark suit or blue jeans. Brown chinos can be dressed down with a sweatshirt for daytime, or dressed up with a smart shirt for the evening.
