How to wear smart patterns

A printed shirt adds interest to smart outfits. Go for floral and geometric patterns that bring an element of fun without falling into novelty territory. Just keep the rest of the look simple of maximum effect.

Style we love: the linen shirt

A linen shirt is the perfect smart option in warmer weather, and not just because it's insanely breathable. It will also style easily with your other pieces – think darker trousers and brown accessories.

Transformer loafers

Loafers can be a dress-up or a dress-down shoe. Wear them with a suit, and it'll relax your look. Wear them with jeans, and they say "I made an effort".

Smarten up your act

Bringing smartness to a typically edgy outfit is easier than you think. Our advice? Start by layering a smart overcoat atop a bold plaid shirt and finish with some cropped trousers for added interest – see, easy.

Stylish separates

The beauty of smart separates is that you can mix and match your colours and patterns (within reason). Go for neutrals – navy is always a winner – then add in some personality with the tie and shirt.

Pare back your smart separates

A brown utility jacket or overshirt instantly tones down a smart blue shirt and stone trousers on days when a suit isn't necessary. The collar and lapels imitate a blazer, but with a laid-back, unstructured feel that's more relaxed.

Run towards this look

We’re talking, pronto. Smart staples like a navy trench and grey formal trousers can be given a burst of colour (and contrast) with a pair of bright-coloured kicks.
