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.

Smarten up the simple way

Maintaining a smart aesthetic

Adding some interest

Balance out your navy chinos with a pale coloured v-neck jumper and you'll instantly lighten up your outfit. Keep the shirt similarly toned too.

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.
