Suit up, look sharp
Four double acts that are spot on for summer
Forget your basic monochrome colour palette because we’re turning smart-casual dressing for the office on its head. Here’s four ways how.
Pair up pastels
Summer’s trend for all things pastel needn’t be limited to your at-home wardrobe. In pinks, blues and greys, tailoring has been given a fresh look this season. Feeling too colour-shy to wear a coordinating suit? Try some sharp pastel trousers instead. This muted cornflower pair look just right off-set against this stork print shirt for subtle tropical vibes.
Try a band tee
Head-to-toe tonal outfits are big news this year. And it couldn’t be easier to work the look into your office wardrobe with an indigo – aka this season’s new black – pairing. The trick to making it work is to mix up your shades. Think a navy shirt with dusty blue chinos or royal blue trousers with a dark indigo tee. A pair of sleek white sneakers make the perfect final touch.
Denim for the office?
Yes, you can wear denim to work (office-permitting of course). Just make sure you steer clear of pale shades and any frays or tears. Instead, sport a pair of dark jeans with a clean, simple cut. Team with a tailored twill blazer and a white grandad shirt for easy smart points.
