Formal work outfits

If you are required to wear a suit to the office, the most important thing is to make sure it’s well-tailored. Once your suit fits perfectly, pair a grey suit with black shoes, and a navy suit with black or brown shoes. Add details, like a patterned tie or colourful socks, to show some personality.

Versatile formalwear

A neutral-coloured knit will brighten up darker suiting and coats, while being versatile enough to pair with chinos or jeans. Layer up your tailored jacket and overcoat for a classic cold-weather work look.

Balance is key

Patterned shirts can look great with a suit but remember: everything in moderation. If you’re unsure, keep the dominant colour neutral, as bold prints can easily overwhelm your look.

Several shades of blue

Wearing complementary tones, like differing shades of blue, is a nice alternative to the traditional white shirt and chinos look – it’s smart, but feels more modern.

Don't be afraid to mix and match

Navy waistcoat and a grey blazer...why not? As long as you keep the levels of formality the same, there's no reason why you can't mix up the colours and textures.

Mix colour and pattern

You don’t have to stick to grey or navy when it comes to suits. Mixing different colours and patterns feels modern and youthful – just make sure to keep things different enough that it feels intentional.

Black-on-black

Black is safe, but all-black makes a statement. To pull it off, make sure there's some subtle contrast in shade or texture, to avoid your look feeling flat.
