Suits are often thought of as expensive investment pieces and so many men believe they need to splash out for a different suit for every occasion. However, if you style the items properly, you can wear one suit in so many different ways and we’re going to show you how.
Using the classic ONESIX5IVE slim-fit checked navy blue three-piece suit, we’re going to show you how one suit can be mixed and matched with other items from your wardrobe to create three totally different looks, suitable for any occasion.
The Classic Look
Starting simply and with the obvious choice, we’re going to be create the most classic look – with a shirt and tie.
For a subtle checked navy suit like this, we’re going to opt for a crisp white shirt to let the blue colour stand out but to keep things interesting, we’re going to contrast the uniform check with a quirky floral tie.
Sticking with the blue colour theme to ensure everything ties together nicely, clashing prints is something that is hugely on trend right now and the perfect way to make a statement while still looking effortlessly stylish.
Finish this look with a pair of smart brown shoes and you’re ready for a wedding, formal dinner or even a big meeting at work!
The Blazer and Jeans Look
Now we’ve worn the whole suit together, we’re going to start mixing in some different items to create some smart-casual looks, starting with pairing the suit jacket with a pair of tailored fitting jeans, an open-neck shirt and a pair of tan brogues.
Perfect for date nights, evening meals or nights out with the boys, pairing the checked navy blue blazer with a light blue shirt and smart pair of dark blue jeans creates a modern, dapper outfit that is versatile for any environments.
Adding a pair of tan brogues ties the whole look together, keeping it more on the formal side, while still comfortable.
The Formal Trousers and Polo Shirt Look
A look that is effortlessly cool, seriously modern and also super versatile for all kinds of occasions, pairing your suit trousers with a polo and a pair of trainers totally changes the dynamic of the look, making it much more casual.
Pair your navy checked trousers with a crisp white polo shirt and fresh white trainers, adding a tan belt to finish the look and you’re ready to head out for food, the office or even the night club!
So, there you have it one suit, three ways! We hope we’ve helped you to created more versatile looks than simply swapping your shirt and tie combinations.
