There are some things in life that are hard and there’s no way around them. Asking that girl you like out on a date. Folding a fitted sheet. Working out how many beers is too many the night before an early morning. All of these are works in progress. Muddle-throughs. Regular cases of near-enough-is-good-enoughs.

Things, though, don’t always need to be hard. No one, after all, is going to see that fitted sheet and Berocca was invented for a reason. There are ways you can make life easier for yourself. Life hacks, if you will.

Make your lunch for the week on a Sunday.

Always have cold beers in the fridge.

Use the same opening line for all the girls on your Tinder (just make it a good one).

And: get your wardrobe sorted so you can wear anything you have at any time and know you look good.

Investing in solid style staples will save you time. Time to solve life’s other problems. Finding the perfect fit is key - and when you do, don’t be afraid to double down. This is an easy way to see you through laundry day.

Staples are staples for a reason. They’re your go-to’s, season after season. So buying up is less of an expense, more of an investment. Labels like Staple Superior offer a solid range of hard-wearing, good-looking basics. Think chino pants, sneakers, long sleeve shirt or tee and knit or cardigan. Easy wearing and relaxed fits. Colours to live in and fabrics that will never die.

Staples, though, are not to be underestimated. A clean white T-shirt can keep you looking sharp all year-round. The right pair of chinos will help someone’s mum become your mother-in-law. You get the picture. We've rounded up an edit for you below (you're welcome).

The key is to buy basics that work as a whole. That match and match in a childproof kind of way. Stay fresh with plenty of neutrals - white shirts and tobacco tones - and keep it real with darker pieces. Make blacks, navys, khakis all part of your rotation.

Once you’ve found a cut to live in, sample it in every shade you like. The trick here it to wear each colour slightly differently - roll up the cuffs on your chinos, wear your denim long and pair a chunky knit with them and your boot of choice.
