A relaxed take on smart-casual

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.

Make easy switches

If a full patterned suit is a step too far out of your comfort zone, go for mix-and-match look. Pairing checked and plain pieces is easy to pull off, and goes just as well other formal pieces as a tailored set.

Introduce a casual layer

A classic way to dress down smarter outfits is with a sophisticated yet comfortable knit. Keep the fit slim rather than slouchy, so it layers neatly over your shirt. It's a relaxed take on formal dressing that will see you from work to evening plans with ease.
