Form and function

The contrast of a workwear-inspired jacket and a pair of coloured chinos (very much not utilitarian gear) creates a visual contrast that adds personality.

Sockless style

This is how you go sockless: keep the rest of the outfit smart-casual and have trousers sit neatly at the ankle bone (not cropped). Try with invisible socks.

Freshen up with a hint of pattern

The easiest way to freshen up your casual repertoire is to incorporate a subtle pattern and colour into your edits. A navy Breton stripe is a versatile style that complements an array of other colours. Wear it with a navy overshirt and red chinos.

It needn't be all blue

Bored of blue jeans and navy chinos? Try something a little more colourful below the belt then anchor it with a dark, neutral top.

Play with colour in sportswear

Sportswear is a great opportunity to add some colour to your wardrobe. A bold teal parka over a rugby shirt with red trousers makes a statement but it doesn't overwhelm the look.

Try something bolder

Tired of wearing one-note looks? Combine colours, prints, and textures for a more visually dynamic statement. Finish the outfit with other more plain and muted items to avoid sensory overload.

Bright and preppy

Don't be afraid to go for bright colours and patterns. A classic navy jumper will ground the patterns and work well with bright red, while a pair of Vans brings the preppy vibe up to date.

How to make a smart statement

A patterned knit and red trousers makes a statement, but that's not all it's about. Practical elements, like a navy overshirt and Chelsea boots, work with the rich tones to bring this outfit firmly into smart territory.
