A nod to military style

Lean into the bomber jacket's military origins by pairing one with lace-up leather boots. Finish with jeans, not cargo pants, so it doesn't feel costume-y.

Shades of grey (white and black)

If you're keeping things tonal, a good rule of thumb is to have the darker colours as trousers and lighter shades up top. It draws the eye to your face, not your legs.

The sleek and minimal look

An overcoat's structure makes it ideal for smartening up in nasty weather. Stick to neutral shades underneath – white shirt, black jeans – to keep that minimalist cool.

Casual-smart, not smart-casual

For a new take on smart-casual, downplay the smart, and lean into relaxed. In other words, team minimalist white trainers with navy chinos and a navy or black polo. Perfect pretty much anywhere.

Making the most of monochrome

With a look this simple, fit is everything. Cropped jackets can throw your silhouette off but with slim (not skinny) jeans you get a tailored look, even in casual clothes.

Classic colours for brighter days

Navy and white is a stylish pairing and easier to wear on brighter days than a classic black and white monochrome look. Plus it’s a super versatile combination, so wear it to the office or out on the weekend.

A look packed with practicality

Waterproof outerwear with chunky boots creates a rugged look that's ideal for marching up mountains or just a sodden commute. If you're more the latter, just add a shirt.
