One for preppy days

We don’t mean boring blazers or tired suits. This season, white chinos and a linen blazer are here to stimulate your wardrobe. As for what to style them with? Keep things classic with a blue stripe shirt and neutral Oxford shoes.

Try citrus shades

Don’t worry, it’s not as scary as you might think. Use a vibrant (and rather fruity) patterned shirt in this joy-inducing colour palette to liven up everyday neutrals – think a blazer and plain formal trousers.

Clash your stripes

Forget earning your stripes, this season, it’s all about clashing them. Simply team a bold blue stripe shirt with a subtle pair of stripe trousers for extra contrast. As for shoes? Grey runners are your first port of call.

Bring on the neutral bomber

Switch out your trench coat (for now), it’s time to focus on the bomber jacket. If you want to add contrast, pick a lighter one to blend in with smart grey trousers and a neutral rollneck. Trainers will add to the sporty aesthetic.

Cue: comfort and style

The perfect smart casual look (in our eyes) has to be a cosy polo teamed with loose-fitting trousers. It’s simple and effective and if you pick a pair of bottoms with an elasticated waist, you'll stay extra comfy all day.
