Mix colour and pattern

You don’t have to stick to grey or navy when it comes to suits. Mixing different colours and patterns feels modern and youthful – just make sure to keep things different enough that it feels intentional.

Keep your style razor-sharp

A navy blazer, crisp white shirt, and green chinos are a failsafe smart combination. Finish the look with monkstrap shoes that feel more statement-making than brogues or loafers, and you're sure to stand out for all the right reasons.

A break in the layers

Layering a lightweight knit under your suit jacket isn’t just a useful way to keep warm. It also breaks up the head-to-toe colour block of the suit and adds some texture to your look.

Add pattern to your suit

A navy suit with a white shirt and a patterned tie is a timeless combination. Keep the base of the tie navy to complement the suit, and you can have fun with the pattern.

Update your navy suit

Is there anything more classic than a navy suit? Make it less office-wear and more wedding-ready by paying attention to details like a knitted tie and crisp pocket square.

A fresh take on the staples

Give your wardrobe classics a new lease of life by blending texture and colour. A neutral shirt paired with navy trousers adds contrast, while a double-breasted blazer and knitted tie will create a warm and tactile aesthetic.

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.
