Feel like you’re on a never-ending mission to find the perfect smart/casj ensemble? Call off the search! This season is ALL about embracing a more casual approach to formalwear, creating contrast with mix and match jackets and trousers. Whether you’re wanting to dress down your workwear wardrobe, or up the ante with your day-to-night ensembles – read on to discover the pieces you need to nail the transitional separates trend.
Bomber jackets are becoming somewhat of a wardrobe stalwart and with endless styles to choose from, you can take an outfit from zero to hero with the addition of this perfect throw-on piece. To dress down some smart trousers, choose a crisp white tee and matching sneaks – then finish off with a bomber jacket. We love the contrast jersey collar, cuffs and hem!
The Worker Jacket
A key layering piece for AW16 is the worker jacket. The distinctive style comes in the form of a heavier, structured fabrication with tonal buttons – all of which look SO premium. Wear it with a skinny formal trouser in a contrasting colour and when it gets cooler, style it out with a roll neck knit or denim shirt underneath for extra casual cool.
The Decon. Jacket
Another essential for every man’s wardrobe is the deconstructed jacket. It’s a modern take on Italian tailoring which consists of a lighter chest piece and softer shoulders. The men’s blazer style falls nicely on the body for a more moving fit, making it the perfect tailoring separate. The khaki colour ticks the utility trend boxes too, popping nicely against a crisp white shirt and looking effortless matched with raw denim.
How will you be wearing the tailoring separates trend this season? Will you be dressing down your formal jackets or introducing your casual pieces to fresh, formal looks?
