Have a few events that require a suit and don’t want to break the bank? We’ve got you sorted with three different looks created from one suit. Meet this season’s most versatile colour- grey.
Keep it Monochromatic:
You won’t put a foot wrong pairing your grey suit with a white shirt, black tie, belt and shoes. For extra flair, choose a knitted tie or a patterned pocket square and socks in keeping with the monochrome theme. On the plus side, this look can easily transition into your 9-5 wardrobe.
Stand Out from the Crowd:
For the guys who love nothing more than standing out, grey is an easy shade to combine with bright colours and bold patterns. Choose a plain shirt in a lighter shade and let your accessories do the talking. Avoid a tie and pocket square in identical patterns – this can look too contrived. Instead, find a pocket square that (however slight) makes a colour reference back to your tie and don’t be afraid of bold geometric or paisley designs.
A Little More Casual:
Leave the pants in the wardrobe and instead pair your grey blazer with tailored chinos. Choose a colour or shade that’s darker or lighter than your jacket to create a striking contrast. A plain shirt and standout accessories work best with this look, so think colour, texture, print and patterns.
