Key items for cooler days

Changing seasons needn't mean investing in a whole new wardrobe. Key items like a single-breasted overcoat retain a smart look when worn over a blazer.

Chinos can take the place of formal trousers

Worn in the right way (and in the right colour) a pair of neutral chinos can sub in for formal trousers. Here, they've been smartly styled with a shirt and cardigan.

Try an inky approach

Navy and black have been unfairly kept apart for too long. In fact, they work really well together as this outfit proves for semi-formal occasions.

Neat and trim

A single-breasted overcoat makes even staples – like chinos and a jumper – look effortlessly smart without feeling stuffy. A vibe accentuated by the loafers.

Adding some interest

Balance out your navy chinos with a pale coloured v-neck jumper and you'll instantly lighten up your outfit. Keep the shirt similarly toned too.

Casual-smart, not smart-casual

For a new take on smart-casual, downplay the smart, and lean into relaxed. In other words, team minimalist white trainers with navy chinos and a navy or black polo. Perfect pretty much anywhere.

Monochromatic magic

The key thing about wearing head-to-toe black is to ensure your shades match up. Washed out blacks can instantly downgrade a look, as can an out-of-place brown shoe or belt.

Several shades of blue

Wearing complementary tones, like differing shades of blue, is a nice alternative to the traditional white shirt and chinos look – it’s smart, but feels more modern.
