Look smart in colour

A handsome look doesn't require a monochromatic suit. Opt instead for separates in complementary colours to nail a more statement-making style.

Black-on-black

Black is safe, but all-black makes a statement. To pull it off, make sure there's some subtle contrast in shade or texture, to avoid your look feeling flat.

A suit for all situations

Every man should own a navy suit. Less severe than black, you can wear it to work or a wedding. It’s simply a case of switching up the accessories.

Nail sophisticated style

Instead of wearing a white shirt with your navy blazer and trousers, opt for grey. This softer contrast will create a sophisticated, contemporary aesthetic – especially when you throw a camel coat over the top.

Keep it simple

You don’t have to wear a tie to look smart. A navy suit and crisp white shirt always looks put-together. Add a patterned pocket square if you want to give your look an extra detail.
