As Vivienne Westwood once said, “Buy less, choose well and do it yourself!” Prioritise items that carry gravitas: shoes, a watch, a great jacket, glasses if you wear them, sunglasses if you don’t, and build from there. Invest in key, quality pieces that are as functional as they are stylish, like a field jacket or safari overshirt, selvedge denim or a tailored cargo pant. Look at brands like Grenfell, Filson, Shinola, Timothy Everest and Sunspel. I'm also a firm believer in ensuring your personality is reflected in your wardrobe. To look stylish and not trend-led, that's where you should start – with what you actually like, not what you're supposed to like.
