It’s official; we have entered into that awkward stage between winter warmers and spring’s bare arms and ankles. It’s times like these when layering shoots straight to the top of your style agenda and we’re coming to the rescue with our five failsafe layering tricks for navigating the British weather once the coats are cast into storage until the same time next year.


·             The mac is your new best friend. It was designed to weather the April showers and it looks damn good doing so. If one doesn’t feature in your wardrobe, you’re missing a layering trick that will never let you down.

·             Cardigans aren’t just for your Nanna. Chunky knits rival coats in terms of warmth, meaning you can wear those new season styles sooner than you thought. If you’re partial to longer length cardies, wear them open with a Mulberry plaited belt wrapped around to define your waist and show off your outfit underneath.

·             Once upon a time, denim jackets triggered memories of B*Witched that we had hoped would stay buried right at the back of our minds. Fortunately, they have redeemed themselves to become a game-changer in the art of layering. Extra style points for wearing yours with your Jacob Cohen jeans. Double denim has never been so cool.

·             Dressing for the switch in seasons doesn’t mean relegating all of your winter wear to the back of the wardrobe. Your ankle boots have served you well with opaque tights and they’ll go the distance with bare legs too now things are heating up. Okay, okay, things WILL be heating up once the Beast goes back to the East.

·             Black polo necks are about to become one with your wardrobe. Gossamer thin knits might not feel like much between your fingers but they’re all you need to make your favourite summer slip dresses wearable in more wintery conditions. Just throw your Belstaff leather over the top to complete the look.

Layering is easy when you know how. Visit us in store now and let the Robinsons style experts help you rework your wardrobe with some artfully arranged additions. 


We’re big fans of the micro trend. Small enough to give our wardrobes a boost with a well-deserved little spending spree, yet capable of working with what we already have in there, the micro trend for shades sweet as ice cream is the little pick me up our wardrobes need as we move into the new season and start to think about throwing off our coats and adding some colour to our outfits.


Pink or blue isn’t just a question for the mums to be. It’s a dilemma we’re struck with when it comes to this bow-back dress by Boutique Moschino. The same classic cut with flirty detailing applies to each version but it’s a question of pretty in pink or beautiful in blue? Both designs have got springtime weddings written all over them but which hue will you be wearing when the snow clears and the occasion calls for something chic?

When it comes to smartening up your looks for those weddings and race meetings, it is those small details that have the potential to transform you into a modern-day dandy. Shoes, ties, pocket squares; they all play their own part in getting suited and booted for the big day in question. Care to look even closer still? Looks at the cuffs for the key to smart looks that could be good but are great instead.

They may be miniscule but the right cufflinks can pack a big punch if you get them right. Often an afterthought, they’re the accessory you need more than you probably ever realised. After all, what else measures less than an inch yet has the ability to prove that a man has his game in hand and understands that it’s the little things that count in those all-important sartorial situations? You need good cufflinks more than you think and classic cufflinks styles by Penrose need no introduction as your first fore into formal finesse.


Founded in Soho in 2008, Penrose London quickly built a reputation as the guys in the know when it comes to exquisitely crafted accessories. Their heritage aesthetic remains the key to classic cufflinks that add a little extra class to everything in your wardrobe, from your smartest tuxedos to your everyday work wear.

And finally, some words of inspiration about dressing well right down to your accessories from Penrose London founder Mitchell Jacobs: “Accessories are all about the art of intelligent dressing. All a man needs is a navy-blue suit and a dozen ties. With those you can change your mood every single day.”

Follow the wise words of Jacobs and shop classic Penrose London cufflinks in store now at Robinsons.




Trainers are kind of a big deal. They are one of our wardrobe’s most transformational pieces, attire to signal the shift in attitude between weekdays in the office and weekends without schedules, people to see and places to be.

Whether you’re suited and booted during the week or rarely make it out of your utility trousers, chances are that by the weekend you’re ready to slip into something a little more comfortable. Enter the Hugo Boss Parkour Runn Trainers.


There’s been a shift in trainer styles recently, with a nod to practicality returning to the fore, however we have a special place in our hearts for smarter pairs that add high-end finishes to retro inspired styles. The Hugo Boss Parkour Runn Trainers are a new take on a casual classic. In navy suede, with gold piping and a multi-tonal knitted mesh upper, they’re the only shoe you need in your case for weekends away this Easter too.
