Nod to subtle colour

An understated hue for the cold season? Deep red. Opt for a rollneck jumper in the subtle shade to brighten up a check blazer and grey wool trousers. Remember: a little colour goes a long way.

Tone on tone

There’s more to building a smart look than meets the eye – why not play with tones to elevate your ensemble? For contrast (and depth), pair a dark grey blazer with mid-tone grey trousers. Adding a light stripe shirt comes highly recommended too.

Lighten the mood

Get a spring in your step for warmer days with a fresh new colour palette – think greys, blues, and neutrals. For styling, layer a light-tone coat over a check blazer and grey formal trousers. Then, add a classic blue shirt to break up the tone.

Create interest with details

After an easy style tip? Look to small details for high impact. Choose a double-breasted blazer (extra buttons add structure to your look), or why not try a small-check shirt? Patterns always go a long way.

How to wear white this season
