I’m a big fan on styling suiting separates. Yep it’s a little more challenging in making sure the right shades sit well together and have the right balance, but it definitely gives an opportunity to inject extra character and layer pattern or texture into your look.
Creating a colour story when styling your suiting separates can really help elevate your look when opting not to wear a full suit. The blazer I’ve gone for here is by Hugo Boss and is quite a statement shade of blue. Paring it with a nautical navy stripe shirt by Country Road, the knitted silk tie by Ted Baker is the same shade of blue as the navy running through the striped shirt and creates a great canvas for the blazer. The texture in the tie also adds extra depth to the look, and being Summer in Sydney, there’s no better time to mix a few shades of blue
If you look at the lighter shade of blue in the pocket square by Hermes, its of similar hue to my trousers, which helps tie together a bit of the top to the bottom of the look.
When I picked up these Alexander Mcqueen MCQ shoes (some time ago now), I thought they we such a cool and fun colour that they where worth the pretty penny; and for designer shoes, they are actually really comfortable. Teaming these with a striped pair of socks by Paul Smith, the navy in the socks adds a little subtle reference to the nautical navy’s going on up top of the look to round everything off.
To help out with sporting that nautical navy blazer, I’ve found a few dapper options below from Hugo Boss to kick start that sartorial summer inspiration.
Stay dapper gents.
