Finally! The hellish year of 2020 is finally over and we can all make a new, more hopeful start with 2021. Sure, some of the problems are still lingering, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all indulge in the tradition of making a New Year’s Resolution.
This year, whatever self improvement goals or lifestyle changes you’re setting, make sure to give yourself a head start by reading our list of top 10 gifts to help keep your New Year’s Resolutions. From new gym shoes to cabin luggage and new loungewear sets to sustainable clothing, we have everything you need to make this year the best one yet.
Make the most of the outdoors
If you’re ever stumped for New Year’s Resolution ideas, you can’t go wrong with the goal of getting outdoors more often. For this resolution, anything from taking a short walk through your local park to going on mountain hikes qualifies, so there’s no excuses not to get outdoors in 2021. Of course, you’ll need the kit for it, but don’t worry, we have the best in men’s designer outdoor clothing right here.
As much as we crave sunny weather and want to dress in shorts and t-shirts, the reality of British weather may be better suited to G-Star’s Attacc Heatseal Quilted Jacket. Available in a dark black colourway that can be effortlessly styled with just about anything, this jacket is a cold weather essential -thanks to its sustainable 100% PFC free water repellent finish and cutting-edge 3M Thinsulate insulation. Featuring a zip chest compartment to hold your everyday essentials and a detachable hood for those rare, rainless days, this waterproof jacket is guaranteed to keep you warm and dry as you venture out this year.
If one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to get out more, it pays to have comfortable, waterproof boots by your side, and these Palladium Pallabosse Sport Cuff Waterproof Leather Boots are the perfect pair for the job. Rugged and stylish, these brown walking boots come with a die cut EVA sockliner and heel cup that support you as you travel, making any terrain manageable. Whether you’re simply taking a walk through your local park – or your reading outdoors somewhere a little more adventurous, Palladium’s boots are the affordable, stylish accompaniment to see you through.
Make more time for yourself
Taking time for yourself and paying extra attention to your mental health is often a popular New Year’s resolution – and we’ve got a classic collection of men’s designer loungewear to help keep you comfortable as you relax and switch off. Get cosy in our range of men’s joggers, t-shirts or hoodies and kick back in style this 2021, you’ve earned it. Whatever your lounging preference, turn this new year into the year of comfort and self-care, with a little help from our popular men’s designer loungewear collection.
Those awkward in-between days in January are made for lounging around in pyjamas and when those days arrive, make sure you’re wearing our classic Tommy Hilfiger Flannel Pyjama Bottoms.
Featuring a tartan-check pattern that works all year round, these lounging trousers have a branded elastic waistband that is built for comfort. Pair these pyjama bottoms with the matching Tommy Hilfiger Lounge Graphic T-Shirt to create a men’s loungewear set that is soft enough to fall asleep in.
Layer up our Tommy Hillfiger loungewear set with this matching Lounge Zip Hoodie. Available in navy blue and heather grey colourways that complement the lounge set perfectly, this zip hoodie is a warm, cosy essential for the wintertime. With its drawstring hood, open pockets and elasticated cuffs and hem, it’s impossible not to feel relaxed this year in Tommy Hilfiger.
Hit those fitness goals
Get that motivation back, with a little help from some of our favourite activewear brands for men, including designer clothes, accessories and workout-ready trainers.
For everyday fitness activities, such as going to the gym and jogging, you’ll need a pair of trainers that are both comfortable and easy to move in. You can’t work out in your standard sneakers without running the risk of damaging them, or your feet, so we recommend investing in a pair of Fila Ray Tracer Trainers in black. Designed with a cushioned collar and tongue to support you as you move, these breathable trainers are both easy to clean and can handle any workout routine.
The perfect bag for carrying your workout gear to and from the gym, the Superdry Combray Tarp Backpack has a large inner compartment with enough space for all your fitness essentials. Featuring side zip compartments, padded and adjustable straps for comfort and separate inner compartments for a laptop, this is the perfect all-round backpack for those days you hit the gym before work.
Shop more sustainably
Not all of our New Year’s Resolution ideas are for personal benefit.
Yes, it’s important to make time for yourself, spending as much time as you can relaxing and bettering your mental and physical health, but this year it’s also important to try and shop more sustainably. If this is something you’re interested in doing, you’re in luck!
Here at Standout, we have collated our sustainably made designer clothing for men category – so you can look fashionable with a clean conscience all year round.
Made from 100% organic cotton, this Superdry OL Baseball T-Shirt is a staple of our range of sustainably made menswear. Featuring a straight hem and coloured sleeves that replicate the classic baseball tee look, this stylishly simple t-shirt, which is available in grey if you prefer a darker wardrobe, is endlessly versatile and can be worn for any casual occasion.
The perfect accompaniment to Superdry’s baseball t-shirt, these Levi’s 511 Slim Jeans feature a comfortable, slim design and the traditional five-pocket design with zip fly. More than just stylish however, these jeans are a great eco-friendly choice as Levi’s have made them from sustainably sourced fibre that retains its stretch – so you can look and feel your best whilst remaining comfortable (and doing your bit for the environment!).
