Give a formal look some edge

A formal invite doesn’t have to mean boring. In fact, it’s an opportunity to play with print. Keep your shapes classic and tailored, and go for a subtle clash of checked blazer and patterned tie.

A fresh take on layering

Here’s a smart twist on layering – a grey check overcoat, blue shirt, and navy trousers. Finish with a green blazer to add a smart injection of colour and some suede Chelsea boots for some added suave.

Sharp, but make it preppy

Yes, both aesthetics are super easy to achieve, all it takes is a neutral blazer to kick things off. Wear yours over a formal blue shirt (for extra prep), then, finish with a tie. Black Chelsea boots and slim-fit jeans will bring the sharpness.

Layer soft and smart pieces

Combine soft and smart aesthetics by layering a brown knitted jumper between your striped shirt and wool blazer. Not only is it the perfect way to maintain warmth in colder months, it ticks all the boxes for contemporary considered dressing, too.
