Practical but polished

A quilted jacket adds a bit of texture to your outfit, without bulking you out as much as a puffa. Keep the jumper closely fitted to avoid fabric bulges.

Roll with the classics

Sometimes, it's best to stick to the tried-and-true wardrobe winners. A white Oxford shirt, relaxed blazer, and jeans is a failsafe smart casual pairing. Just make sure you get the fits right so it feels fresh and contemporary .
