How to Refresh Your Suit This Party Season

Party season is almost upon us which can only mean one thing; it’s time to dust off the suit. Feel your current two piece is outdated? We have you covered with  six easy ways to refresh your formal look just in time for the festivities. 

Add a Smart Knit

The colder months can leave you feeling the chill, so swap out your shirt in favour of a smart knit. Team with a blazer and suit trousers to keep it structured, and nod to the new season with a smart palette of navy blues, camels and blacks.

Think Simple Details

Less is most definitely more with your formalwear, so don’t overthink your suit accessories. A simple tie in any autumn-esque colour gives an instant refresh your jacket and trousers combo. 

Keep it Casual

Suit ensembles don’t need to be stiff and formal; try swapping out a jacket for a structured bomber, keeping your shirt buttoned to retain that tailored feel. 

Treat Your Feet

Many make the mistake of focusing on the suit, but be sure to give your shoes some attention. Treat feet to a fresh pair of brogues for a classic nod, or reboot your formalwear with a crisp pair of trainers. 

Mix and Match

Mixing and matching suit components is increasingly popular this season, and the easiest way to add newness to your partywear. Pick a checked shirt and bold tie, teaming it with a mismatching suit jacket and trousers. Top tip: Make it work best with a jacket that’s slightly darker than your trousers. 

All About Socks

While footwear is important, your socks can add serious character to your partywear. Elevate your suit with subtle splashes of colour on your socks, or opt for geometric elements to keep the eye entertained.
