Ok gents, whether you’re into your fashion or not, there are a couple of basic essentials that you can update your wardrobe with to give it an ever so subtle autumnal overhaul. We’re not talking anything major here, just a few simple purchases* (to the cost of £50 to be exact) to help you look the part this autumn. Without further ado, let’s jump in…


The polo-neck has been making something of a comeback over the last couple of years and this autumn it’s finally getting the recognition it deserves. Worn with a blazer for a smarter feel or by itself, the polo neck creates an effortless feel. If you’re new to the trend, why not pick up this polo-neck from Primark – it’s only £8!

Checked shirt

Another smart-casual hybrid is the checked shirt – in particular, the blue and red checked shirt! This print is everywhere on the high-street and would make a smart alternative to wear on a night out – it’s only £7!


Believe it or not, grey is the colour of the season. We know that doesn’t sound particularly exciting but just trust us! Something like this basic grey crew neck jumper from Primark could be dressed up with a shirt or layered over a basic tee. Pair it with brighter, more vibrant colours and you’ll be on to a winner – not bad for £6, right?


If you’re sick of wearing the same old jeans day in, day out, why not pick yourself up a pair like these from F&F at Tesco? This charcoal pair are a good basic that you can build your whole outfit around but that’s not the best part, they’re only £10!


Let’s face it, we’re not all born to be hat wearers, but if there’s one hat that’s bound to be the perfect fit this autumn, it’s a beanie. This charcoal one from Primark will not only keep you warm, but will hide a multitude of bad hair day sins! What more could you ask for, for just £3?


Instead of spending your money on a few different pairs of shoes this autumn, why not choose one that serves all purposes? This lace up brogue boot could do the trick, as it can be worn casually with a pair of jeans or dressed up under a smart trouser, jumper and blazer. At only £16, this is one of the most affordable pairs we’ve seen on the high-street!

Total = £50

So there you have it, with just £50 and a keen eye for a bargain you can revamp your wardrobe for the new season. Ladies, don’t think we’ve forgotten about you – we did a guide to autumn essentials for you, as well as one on how to kit yours kids out for under £40.
