“On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.” – Thomas Jefferson
Any style-conscious gentleman will already know that mixing styles are big news for the seasons ahead. In fact, so much so, we included three different styles that you can try. Perfect for those who like to get the very most out of their clothing, separates – i.e. combining non-matching blazers and trousers – will not only breathe new life into your existing tailoring collection but are perfect for creating a wealth of smart-casual or formal looks for a variety of occasions.However, while anyone can put together two different garments, it takes a little more thought to get the colour/fabric combinations right. So, to ensure you are successful, this article aims to highlight five fail-safe separates pairings that utilise pieces the majority of men will already have in their wardrobe…

Style fact: the leather biker jacket’s lesser-known name is the ‘Perfecto’, which is apt when you consider that it’s arguably the most perfect – not to mention powerful – piece of outerwear there is. knits are the missing piece of the transitional wardrobe puzzle – breathable when temperatures rise and cosy when the beer garden gets frosty.
However, in the wrong hands, they can end up looking a bit safe. Toughen up your knitwear by layering a biker jacket over the top, which not only brings an instant edge to your everyday look.
Perhaps the most classic and timeless of these three combinations, a blue blazer with grey trousers is a match made in heaven. Perfect for both formal and informal events, this sleek and simple pairing is a foolproof option that any man can pull off successfully. Whether worn to the office or for drinks at the weekend, these versatile and masculine hues will ensure you always look confident and stylish. To complete the look, utilise other capsule wardrobe essentials: a crisp white shirt, neutral tie and black Oxfords/Derbies when heading to the office, switching for a ribbed roll neck and loafers for a meal with the other half.
Out of all the combinations, this article will cover, a navy jacket with white trousers is sure to prove the most versatile. Just as effective in the winter as it is in summer, this eye-pleasing pairing will have you looking your best whatever the occasion. Although there are no strict rules as to what style of blazer you should wear – single/double-breasted, notch/shawl/peak-lapelled and one/two/three button designs are all fair game – we would suggest opting for an on-trend double-breasted version for formal occasions, switching for a classic two-button design when looking to dress down slightly.
