Make it colourful

Not sure where to start with colour? Pick one, like green, but experiment with different shades. Keeping everything else neutral – think simple dark denim and minimal trainers – will give you more chance to play around and let the colour be the focus.

Men in black

Add easy edge to your look with a black monochromatic look. Throw on a pair of casual black boots and a leather jacket to nail a reformed biker look – you can always throw the latter over your shoulder when temps begin to climb.

Introduce jewel tones

Add some punch to a neutral outfit with a bold, jewel-toned top. Keep the rest of the look subtle but sophisticated with classic chinos and leather boots.

Go a little lighter

Interesting alternatives

Change up smart looks by wearing a polo with tailoring, in place of a shirt. The soft collar gives your look a more relaxed feel, but it’s still more shirt than tee.
