All-black everything

Head-to-toe black is a failsafe combination that will work for almost any occasion. But it can look a bit severe. Adding a lighter tone, like grey, will help to break things up.

The art of layering

Layers are an easy way to get the most out of your outfit – you can play around with simple shapes, different colours and patterns. A striped tee and Chelsea boots paired with the denim shirt and field jacket elevate this understated outfit.

Smart seasonal layering

This outfit's dark tones and rich textures make it ideal seasonal attire. You get warmth from the cable-knit and smartness from the overcoat, for a look ready for anything.
