Adding a casual look to a formal event
You don’t have to wait for a wedding or your next big Keynote Speaker event to get your suit out. Suits look great on formal occasions, but with the right styling, they can also be worn as a casual look too.
It’s known by many that a man in a suit almost always looks stylish. Here are four ways to give you a casual look and help you feel good at the same time.
Lose the tie
This is one of the easiest ways to dress down a suit. Ties work well for job interviews and formal occasions, but by simply removing yours, you can create a casual look. You can add a colourful scarf, a floral neck tie or a stand out pocket square. If you choose not to add anything else, then unbutton the top of your shirt to get a tasteful and effortless look.
Swap the shirt
A great way to freshen up your look is to replace the typical white shirt with a turtleneck. Designer t-shirts are also a good option for summer and a more casual ensemble. Keep it low key with colours like navy, grey and black or stand out with stripes. If you want to add some edge, then choose a crewneck sweatshirt to combine with your suit. For ultimate street style, add a hoodie and pair with loafers.
Seperate your suits
If you’ve got more than one suit, you can mix and match to create a cool style. Mix colours and textures to make different themes. You can add a blazer or jacket to jeans for a casual look or wear a different colour of trousers with your suit jacket and shirt. Not only is this a great style choice, it also saves you money by offering hundreds of different combinations.
Change your footwear
The easiest way to achieve an instant casual look is to change your formal shoes for trainers. Leather, sleek, canvas and silhouette trainers are the best choices and act as a contrast to your suit. A white pair of trainers will give you a clean and classic look, yet still stay formal too. Investing in a pair of white trainers is a good idea, because they’re everywhere in fashion at the moment and can be combined with a variety of outfits.
