Versatile formalwear

A neutral-coloured knit will brighten up darker suiting and coats, while being versatile enough to pair with chinos or jeans. Layer up your tailored jacket and overcoat for a classic cold-weather work look.

Choose check

A favourite pattern of ours? Check, always. It's just so easy to style. Swap out your basic blazer for a check alternative and, for the cooler months, opt for a rollneck top to peek through from underneath.

Play around with hues

The blue roll-neck combined with the navy overcoat adds an extra layer of interest to your outfit. By putting the darker layers on the outside, you give your outfit depth.

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.
