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.

Nail your formal look

Nothing beats a classic suit when you need to look smart. Take your look to the next level with a subtly patterned shirt and some bold accessories. Ties and pocket squares work best when they complement, rather than match, each other.

Make a colour change

A charcoal suit is a nice alternative to black (it’s not as harsh) and can feel more individual than navy. Go for a light tie for a tried-and-true suiting combo.

A subtle upgrade

Use texture to add some extra detail to any smart separates combo. A knitted tie or textured blazer elevates your outfit without grabbing too much attention.

Make your patterned blazer pop

While we love plain black blazers for a more minimal aesthetic, sometimes we want something to make our look pop. A patterned iteration is a great way to add interest and contrast to all black – think a formal shirt, trousers, and black Derbies.

A subtle pattern

In a simple outfit, a small pattern can have a big impact. Adding a striped tie will add some personality to your suit without making you stand out.
