If I were a Boy, even just for one day..

This was a very fun blog to do. Cup of tea, ham sandwich and a few hours of looking through websites at pictures of really hot male models in perfectly styled clothes. TGIF. And also TG for all their mothers.

Anyway! Here's my top picks for the perfect autum/winter wardrobe for men. There are a few key things that you need and with those pieces you can build alot of outfits.

The jacket: Let me set the scene. You're rushing, no time to choose a cool outfit , so you grab your jacket because it's freezing outside. You meet a girl/boy in the pub, ye decide to go the takeaway, they have forgotten their jacket and you offer yours-but they decline because-and I quote (almost) a line from the Mean Girls film, 'that is the uggliest f-ing coat I've ever seen.' And just like that my friends, you go home alone. Luckily for you I have some handy links to very stylish and warm coats below. The H&M clothes can only be bought in store apologies!

The wool jumper/cardigan: These are essential in any winter wardrobe because they can be worn everyday, all you have to do is change the shirt underneath or the jeans and voila! New outfit.

The Shirt/Tshirt: Don't be afraid to wear something a little out there, something with a print, or colour-not too much colour and nothng neon-but something that will make you stand out-subtly.

The scarf: Because it's winter and it's cold, and ye are very annoying with a flu.

The gloves: Again, the cold winter thing. And because these additional items may be small but can make you actually look like you give a crap about fashion, and to most girls/guys, this is very attractive.

The belt: Again, the extra bit of effort, if you go for a classic black or brown leather chunky belt it goes with alot more than more patterned or fabric belts.

The trousers: Whether you're a chinos, wide leg or skinny jeans man, you have to decide on one because you can't walk around in the nip, and Canterbury's just won't cut it. So there's a link to really cheap chinos on eBay for only €14 postage included, in a range of colours. And two types of jeans, a straight leg or a skinny for those who dare.

The shoes: This is very biased on my behalf because of my own obsession with brogues but they are just in my opinion the coolest shoes anyone can wear, They're casual yet stylish without any effort and they go with everything. The ones I have chosen here are more a boot-type form which are more suitable for winter, and the colour is very authentic looking.
