Why we’re all for formal dressing

While we like to keep things casual, occasionally, a smart and preppy look is high on our agenda. We’re talking a blue shirt, navy trousers, and a grey overcoat. Put some prep in your step with a check blazer and penny loafers.

Mix it up in green

Giving a smart look a stylish edge is as simple as switching out your classic chinos. Go for a green shade to stand out for your individual style, and keep the rest of your look classic to stay on dress code.

Look smart in colour

A handsome look doesn't require a monochromatic suit. Opt instead for separates in complementary colours to nail a more statement-making style.

Invest in a blue check waistcoat

While it might not seem like the obvious piece to pair with a green blazer, this contrasting combo actually screams sophistication. Throw a light blue shirt and brown formal trousers to the mix and look on in awe.

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.

Invite colour into your wardrobe

Cold, dark winter commutes aren't fun, but your work outfit can be. Introduce some colour with a light blue knit rather than a typical navy, and accessorise with a red scarf for a bold finish.

Not just for school

Instead of relying on the same old three-piece-suit, swap your waistcoat for a lightweight knit. It's still smart and sharp but feels fresher than the usual suited looks.
