Guest Editor Darren Kennedy’s top five pieces for the ultimate men’s capsule wardrobe

Today on IMAGE.ie, TV presenter, columnist, and all-round style expert Darren Kennedy is here to take the editor’s reigns. All day on our website and social media, you can catch Darren giving his perspective on beauty, fashion, lifestyle and more, as he takes on the new role of guest editor.


We spend a lot of time talking about women’s wardrobes at IMAGE.ie, but the beauty of having Darren Kennedy as our guest editor for the day means we can see things from a male perspective. As we come into the summer months, it can be difficult to transition your style, but with a capsule edit of timeless and well-made pieces, you’ll never be stuck for something to choose. These items will see you through a host of different seasons, occasions and moods, and will ensure you always have the perfect finishing touch to an outfit.

A trench coat

Shower resistant longline trench coat with belt in stone, €82.95 from ASOS

 

Donning a trench is the easiest way to inject some serious old-school style into any outfit – it’s an ageless classic.

 

 A weekend bag

Coloured leather holdall, €415 from Ted Baker

 

There’s no point having a tightly edited wardrobe if you’re going to throw your carefully-selected garments into any old hold-all. This option from Ted Baker is the perfect size for weekend getaways. Eye-catching and understatedly chic.

 

The Breton stripe

Breton Stripe Sweater, €290 from AMI

 

Make like a Parisian in this timeless Breton stripe top from French label AMI. I would suggest going up a size or considering wearing this style a little looser on the body as it looks instantly more fashionable!

 

Chelsea boots

Godfrey D Chelsea Boot in Black Calf Leather, £395.00 (€458 approx) from Cheaney

 

No self-respecting man should ever be without a pair of go-to Chelsea boots in his wardrobe. This black pair from Cheaney tick all the boxes and if you’re getting Chelsea boots in only one colour, make sure it’s black.

 

Jeans

Regular Fit Denim in Dark, €?395 from ISAIA

I’m stating the obvious here – every man needs at least one good pair of jeans, but you have to remember it’s all about fit. Say no to bootcut and flares and wave goodbye to spray-on skinny, these ones from Italian label Isaia are the perfect answer.
