Ditch your tie and you transform your look from working week to drinks-on-a-rooftop. Just ensure the suit and shirt fit perfectly, to avoid looking like a politician.

A bit of difference

You can have a bit more fun with separates than a suit since there are more elements to play with. Wearing something with a small pattern makes the whole thing feel distinctive.

Staying smart in any weather

A structured coat is a clever outerwear option with a suit – it’s still smart but adds warmth without adding bulk.

Play with layers

This look proves the old adage that with layers, less is more. A lightweight shirt, vest and jacket can be as warm as one heavy coat, plus adaptable if the weather changes.

Smarten up with structure

A structured blazer is inherently more formal than one without padding, so it makes even an unbuttoned shirt feel that bit more put-together. Perfect when it's too hot for a tie.

The power of all-one-colour

Blue's the kind of colour you can wear everyday. But blue-on-blue-on-blue takes a safe shade and makes it into a look. Best of all, you know nothing will clash.
