We may have only set a tentative foot into winter, but by selecting versatile pieces from our new season's first arrivals wisely, you can ensure that you're fashion-forward now, and well into the season ahead.

Wear it now, wear it then, wear it at work or wear it off-duty. An oft-overlooked classic, the white shirt is a menswear must-have which can be worn in formal or informal settings, and to put it simply, it's one of the most versatile items that you can own.

On Reiss. The Star shirt looks classic from afar, but on closer inspection small seasonal updates such as panel detail and a concealed placket give this piece contemporary credentials.  

Don't think of knitwear as the preserve of winter dressing. Opt for an endlessly versatile knit such a crew neck white jumper which can be worn with layers when it's cold, or worn on its own when the mercury rises.

On Reiss. The Ivor jumper in stone combines a classic silhouette with a subtle yet directional weave. Wear yours paired with a navy Epsom coat for right now, but wear with tailored shorts on warmer days.

Ties rarely go out of style, so invest now and wear from season to season. Our tip for the nattiest neckwear? Opt for a knitted slim tie, and if you want to don pattern, polka dot is the most voguish way to wear this accessory.

On Reiss. Knitted and navy, the Cutler tie is a classic accessory which will add a textural element to your work wear ensembles with minimal effort.

Think of leather not just as a seasonal companion but rather an item to build your wardrobe around. Steer clear of ephemeral design, instead opt for leather which bears the hallmarks of classic style. Black is naturally the trustiest option, so to keep things interesting opt for a style with contrasting hardwear.

On Reiss. With its relaxed shape, the Patriot jacket in black is a classic way to coverup, but metallic gold buttons, zips and buckles keep this garment feeling aptly updated.

Layer your polo neck when it's chilly, but go it alone when spring has sprung. A fine knitted polo is one of our favourite trends for now and next season. To give this look a tailored aesthetic, wear with a sharply-cut blazer.

On Reiss. Thanks to its soft grey hue, the Moon polo neck is ideal for wearing with darker colours now but pairing with lighter colours come spring.
