Formal work outfits

If you are required to wear a suit to the office, the most important thing is to make sure it’s well-tailored. Once your suit fits perfectly, pair a grey suit with black shoes, and a navy suit with black or brown shoes. Add details, like a patterned tie or colourful socks, to show some personality.

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.

Stay smart outerwear

With its military heritage, a pea coat ups your formal game, adding style as well as warmth. That means it works as well with a suit as it does your denim.

A considered finish

Contrast a grey suit with a classic navy overcoat. A dark green tie and checked scarf add extra points of interest without going too bold.

On the smarter side of smart-casual

Wearing (almost) all-black could make you look drab, but slotting a knit under the jacket makes this more work-friendly.

Play with layers

This look proves the old adage that with layers, less is more. A lightweight shirt, vest and jacket can be as warm as one heavy coat, plus adaptable if the weather changes.

How to go tie-less

A v-neck jumper over a shirt is a perfectly acceptable way to handle the no-tie issue, as it still creates a sense of formality.

Smart without the suit

Smart doesn’t always mean you need a blazer. A lightweight knit over a shirt can still look polished especially with formal trousers and leather shoes. Add a little hit of colour with a bright tie.
