Mix colour and pattern

You don’t have to stick to grey or navy when it comes to suits. Mixing different colours and patterns feels modern and youthful – just make sure to keep things different enough that it feels intentional.

Update your casual look

Sometimes a smart look might need an extra something special, and this season, our stylists advise throwing a check shirt into the mix. Slip yours on under a plain navy blazer and formal trousers. Brown leather loafers to finish? Great idea.

Update your navy suit

Is there anything more classic than a navy suit? Make it less office-wear and more wedding-ready by paying attention to details like a knitted tie and crisp pocket square.

Try different trousers

Rather than grey or navy, go for deep red trousers in your smart casual look. They make a statement, but still look just as smart when paired with a blazer and shirt.

Start with a blank canvas

A grey suit is a blank canvas for colourful accessories, like a burnt orange or red patterned tie. Keep everything else simple to let the colour really stand out.

Lift a formal look

A good reason to love formal occasions? It’s the ideal time to smarten up and wear your navy blazer, grey trousers, and black leather loafers. Pick a stripe shirt instead of a plain option to elevate your ensemble.

Tonal tailoring

By taking the colour of the suit and then finding a shirt and tie in the same colour spectrum, it can make a very smart outfit. Add contrast with accessories.

Smart and spring worthy

Lean towards smart separates in lighter hues this season for wear-anytime appeal. Start with a neutral shirt before slipping on linen trousers and a checked blazer. Wondering about brown penny loafers to finish? We couldn’t agree more.
