Types of clothing and when to wear them:
Now that we have established what's trending this season, let's dive a little deeper into the variety of fashion that is available for your wearing pleasure. Choosing the right outfit for the right occasion is so important! Here's a little breakdown to give you an idea of what we have in store for you in the Lesara online shop:
- Coats & jackets:
Whatever the season, you must have a jacket in hand when the weather becomes unfavourable. We have so many variations, from lighter layering garments such as parkas, bombers & denim jackets to warmer options such as windbreakers & woollen coats. For more formal occasions, our classic suit coats trump all to add sophistication to your business look.
- Suits & blazers:
The peak of class and elegance, suits & blazers are must-have formal wear in any fashion-conscious gentleman's wardrobe. Our business wear comes in a host of designs, from classy waistcoats to pinstripe blazers & trousers. Pair them up with our fine shirts & dress shoes to create a look that even James Bond would be proud of!
- Jumpers & cardigans:
The masters of layering, these stylish & reliable garments work wonders for the transitional months. During the spring & autumn, they combine well to add warmth to light jackets - perfect for when the weather is at its most uncertain. The colder the season the thicker the yarn. Enter: cable knits and woolly jumpers! Fortunately, we have a wealth of designs, textures & colours to match your taste. The trick is to experiment with textures to give your outfit that extra touch of personality.
- Shirts & T-shirts:
T-shirts are modern masterpieces. Evolving from subtle undergarments to established wardrobe essentials, they offer you so much convenience when setting your downtime dress code. Thanks to their versatility, they can be bought at a decent price throughout the year. Consider your choice of fabrics when shopping. Natural materials such as wool and cotton are great all year round. However, if you are the sportier type, synthetic fabrics such as nylon and polyester make better activewear, as they control your perspiration far better than more traditional textiles. Dress shirts are a more refined choice to t-shirts, and like their casual siblings, their styles vary considerably. From classy buttoned-down shirts to casual vintage checks, at Lesara you will find a host of designs to match your personal tastes. As rule of thumb, thick cotton or flannel shirts, when paired with a jumper or a cardigan, make the perfect winter wear. For the hotter months, lighter garments such as short sleeve shirts & nylon fabrics are great for keeping cool and collected on sultry evenings.
- Trousers, jeans & shorts:
Whether you prefer daring denim or smart trousers, whether long or short, pants work on any occasion! We offer a huge selection of designs for you to choose from. Take a peek at our trending range of jeans for casual urban excellence or add sophistication to your look with sleek business trousers & chinos. As the summer strolls in, shorts will play a much larger part in your decision making. Fear not! We have so many choices to get your hands on, and we guarantee they will leave you looking classy when the temperatures are at their hottest!

What clothing should you wear per season?
When it's cold, hot and everything in between, spring can be a confusing time to dress. Team light jeans and sweaters with a trench coat and desert boots for a smart spring combo. Layering is particularly important! Rock a leather jacket with breathable knitwear and make sure to use cool pops of colour and daring prints.
Stone & rose are the colours to go for. Combine the two with light chino shorts and a warm short sleeve shirt, perfect for sultry summer evenings and an easy transition to your evening wear. Choose your fabrics carefully. Cotton is an instant hit thanks to its breathable properties, which keep you cool during the hottest days of the season while providing you with warmth on cooler evenings. Team up with boat shoes, sunglasses and a straw hat for maritime swag!
Denim is always trendy in fall. There are lots of different colours and styles to wear. Thanks to their warm and breathable properties, you never feel too hot or too cold while wearing them. Pair denim jeans with a fine knit cardigan and pop on a comfortable blazer for a look that works throughout the day.
As the temperatures start to fall, you need an outfit that looks sharp but keeps you insulated on the coldest days of the season. Make use of undershirts, jumpers, cardigans & slim trousers which are great for trapping heat. Their streamlined shape allows you to layer multiple items on top. Outerwear such as cable knit jumpers & winter coats offer added warmth when the temperatures are too cold to handle and look great in dark red or navy blue. Complete the look with matching hats, scarfs & gloves!
How should your clothes fit?
Before you decide what to buy, you need to understand that choosing the right fitting clothing will make or break your look. In an ideal world, you'd visit a good tailor to get your garments cut to the right size, but we know it can be troubling and time-consuming to get professionally measured. So, here are a few key tips to ensure the basics are covered. The perfect shirt should be balanced at the cuffs, and not overhanging onto the hand. The size should not be baggy, as it will billow and cause creasing. This is equally applicable with T-shirts. Go for close-fitting shirts, but not enough to show off your body features, particularly if you have a larger body frame. Likewise, with skinnier guys, the baggier the top the more their frame will stand out. Trousers should not be tight to the leg or billowing either. More importantly, all pants should be able to rest on your waist, without the use of a belt. Jeans should be slim on the thigh and tapered or straight towards the leg. For larger body types, bootcut jeans are advisable. Coats & jackets you can have a slight leeway, depending on the season. Go for tight-fitting jackets in the warmer months, but oversize works well during the winter season. Just be sure to check the space on your shoulders. Skinner guys should focus on wider shoulder garments to bolster their shape, whereas larger guys should focus on the longer, narrower jackets to create a better balance.
Urban clothing or business? Which style suits you best?So now that you have the know-how of what types of fashion are out there, it's time to piece them all together and create an outfit which you own. Here are a few handy tips on creating an outfit to match your personality:
- Weekend Warrior:
Do you fancy yourself as a bit of a party animal? Then, you need an outfit that looks sharp but can last up until the early hours. We'd go for the slim fit dark denim jeans & light fabric shirt combo that can work with both scales of the dress code. The lightweight fabric makes it comfortable for when you're busting shapes on the dance floor, and is even more pleasing to the eye. Finish them with dark or black desert boots and a light blazer and you are ready to hit the tiles!
- Outdoor Explorer:
Do you feel more comfortable in the outdoors? As the latest trends have shown, hiking & functional outfits are in and we appreciate that technical quality can be the making of good style. As we mentioned earlier, parkas are must-have outerwear that add both style and practicality to your wardrobe. The right activewear is also incredibly important. Try out synthetic undergarments and pair them with light windbreakers that allow you to manage your body climate, but also allow you space to manage the rigours of strenuous exploring.
If winning in the boardroom is your idea of fun, then business wear should be the staple of your wardrobe. A shirt & tie combo simply doesn't cut it in the office these days, and most men strive to stand out, even at the busiest times of their week. If your office is strictly sophistication, tailored suits are a must. Add into the mix warm colours such as rose shirts to add character & style to your look. If the office is smart casual, layering is a particularly good skill to learn. Experiment with textures such as a polo shirt/cardigan combination and pair with dark denim.
- Urban Legend:
If you see yourself as an urban crawler, going oversize gives you instant street cred. Longline tops in all styles & colours work so well with destroyed denim. Add a bomber jacket into the mix, and you've got yourself a style that the west coast will be proud of. Want to add a little class to your look? Chino joggers are the ultimate hybrid of vintage style & modern excellence. They can be dressed up with a shirt & slip-on shoes for a sharp going-out look or can be teamed up with high-tops & a hoodie for a laid-back off-duty outfit.
- Series Binger/Gamer:
Are you a hardcore gamer or just love some Netflix and chill time? Whether you are winning on FIFA with your friends or watching the latest series of GOT, you need a comfortable outfit to feel content in front of the TV. We recommend going for the tried & tested joggers/sweatshirt combination. Not only is it comfortable on the couch, it can transcend into an effective outdoor outfit, for when you need to rush to the shops for extra snacks! If you are feeling more adventurous, go for a daring onesie. Luckily at Lesara, we have a great selection of onesies in all shapes and sizes in our online store!
Now that we have given you the lowdown on the art of clothing, all you need is the right place to find the trendiest men's fashion at the cheapest prices. Order on our website or app and look forward to a rapid delivery and a shopping experience you will never forget at Lesara!
