Let the outerwear do the talking

Just the hint of colour peeking through the navy pea coat is enough to stop this outfit feeling boring. Particularly with work boots to give it a rugged edge.

The easy weekend outfit

Don't overthink weekend looks. Easy pieces like jeans, a casual shirt and boots can be dressed up or down depending on where you're heading. So you can focus on fun, not your wardrobe.

Introducing texture (in the form of tweed) and pattern (in the form of a pocket square) is an accessible way to mix up your more formal looks.

Key layers that elevate your look

All-black can feel a bit flat, so you need to lean into texture. As long as you've got some wool in the mix, monochrome won't feel monotone.

An alternative to blue jeans

If you don't want to look like you're wearing a Texas Tuxedo, then try swapping blue jeans for grey trousers. You can then wear a blue denim shirt on top.
