September ushers in a sartorial fresh start as the relaxed silhouettes of summer are replaced with sharp tailoring, luxe fabrics and polished accessories. This is the time to take stock and prepare your wardrobe for the season ahead, by investing in elevated basics that will see you through the coming months in style.

Add an unexpected freshness to your autumn style with these crisp, white jeans from French brand Sandro. Keep it seasonal by pairing with warmer tones and heavier textures like this high-neck rust knit and checked jacket. Micro houndstooth zipped jacket, €385; Funnel neck sweater, €195; Cotton slim-fit jeans, €145; Leather derby shoes, €365; all Sandro. sandro-paris.com

Sleek shades are an essential accessory year-round. This matte-brown pair from Lisbon-based Fora combines a love of vintage style with modern craftsmanship – each pair of glasses is carefully handmade from start to finish in their Portuguese factory. Fora Hero dark-brown matte sunglasses, €118 fora.pt

Inject some artistic flair into your look with this exclusive collaboration between British artist James Wilson and Spanish stalwart Zara. The humble sweatshirt is transformed by Wilson’s minimalist line drawings, making it the perfect addition to a pair of tailored trousers for smart-casual dressing.
