Loosen up your casual clothing

Just because you're dressed smartly, doesn't mean you need to look stuffy. Throw on a pair of trainers and opt for a slightly looser trouser, and the entire look will feel cooler and more casual.

The new way to style a bomber

You might think of a bomber jacket as casual streetwear – and you'd be right – but that doesn't mean it can't be adapted for your smarter wardrobe. The beauty of a bomber is its surprising versatility that lends itself to both simple jeans and t-shirt pairings, or a more considered shirt and chinos combination.

Build a versatile collection

The half-zip sweater is a perfect cold-weather mid-layer, but it can work just as well in-between seasons too. On warmer days, layer it over a casual shirt. Then when the temperature drops, just throw on an overcoat for an easy smart casual look.

Create light accents

By matching black jeans and a black jumper with paler coloured shoes and shirt, you create a visual contrast that stops this outfit from looking drab.

Consider contrast

To us, contrast is key – especially when you’re building a smart casual look. A neutral jumper in a light colourway will add just the right amount of contrast to a dark blazer and trouser combo.

Be prepared for any weather

Layer up, and you'll be prepared when the temperature drops. A trench coat and gilet might not seem like the obvious combination, but it works perfectly for smart casual occasions when paired with chinos and sneakers.

Layers are your best friend

The temperature has officially dropped – in other words, it's time to turn to your trusty layers. Dress up your crisp white shirt with a lightweight jacket or, our personal go-to, a padded gilet. Stay warm out there.
