GQ Fashion Editor Nick Carvell picks the standout pieces for autumn that will make light work of daytime dressing

Your default might be to wear joggers with a pair of trainers, but to make them office appropriate, treat them as you would a pair of jeans. Go for a slimmer, more tailored cut and smarten them up with rugged hiking boots for the most comfortable, weatherproof work get-up ever.

Relaxed can still be boardroom ready. Take a casual two-piece to the next level by dressing it down right: slip on a white crew-neck tee and coordinating pristine trainers for a sleek, smart-casual vibe.

The knit

As the temperature dips, a thick insulating layer is a non-negotiable working wardrobe addition. Military detailing will promote your knit to star of the office: featuring elbow patches or zipped pockets, ribbed sweaters in charcoal grey, navy and army green look effortlessly cool paired with camel chinos.

The bomber jacket

Bomber jackets were invented for American pilots during the First World War and considering they’re still appearing on the catwalks now, it’s safe to say they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Invest wisely in a navy or black style and it’ll be a mainstay of your wardrobe for years to come, perfect for work and play alike

A sharp-shouldered style in grey or camel is one of the most versatile items a man can have in his wardrobe. Of course, it looks superb when worn smartly over your tailoring, but the ultimate power move is to wear it casually. Throw it over a hoodie to take it from suit to skate.
