New style goal: Let’s make suits fun again

A suit, they say, is the most masculine uniform. But it is also the most restricting, the do’s and don’ts can make you claustrophobic. Not any more. Here’s how to break the rules, and make business suits an extension of your personality.

Experimenting is the key. Stand out in the crowd by pairing your suits with unconventional pieces. Think tees, tanks, crew neck knits and more.

Get the most out of your suits by using them as seperates. Rich hues like maroon, brown, navy and dark green suits are easy to work as separates.

Add character to your suit by ditching formal shirts, ties, pocket squares... or whatever the rule book says. Replace them with more casual layering options like roll-necks and pullovers in classic colours.

Go the unconventional way and pair your suits with sneakers. Picking monotone  colours is an easy way to balance the look for a contemporary take on this wardrobe staple.

Individualise your suit by adding a touch of your personality. From floral shirts to casual stripes, make it your own without looking like you tried too hard.
