STYLE GUIDE: BREAKING UP YOUR SUIT

Style-savvy men across the globe, from the editors at Fashion Week to the well-heeled gents on the streets of Tokyo, have all been sporting the latest trend in menswear: suit separates. Do it right and you’ll exponentially expand your wardrobe options, but take the wrong turn, and you ’ll look like you’ve accidentally paired the wrong trousers with your jacket in the post-slumber blur of the morning. To point us in the right direction, Han San from bespoke menswear label, Q Menswear , puts together two sample looks (a smart day time outfit and a striking evening ensemble) and offers some pointers on how to mix and match your suit separates right.

MIX-AND-MATCH HEURISTICS

• Pair trousers with an obvious colour contrast to the jacket.
Colours that are too similar w ill can look like a mismatch, whereas a contrast will make it clear that it’s a deliberate and considered pairing.

• Avoid mixing and matching different patterns.
If your jacket is patterned (whether stripes or checks) keep the trousers in a solid colour (and vice versa).

• Colours can be different but still harmonised.
For example, try a pastel ensemble for day time functions or bold colour combinations for a more formal evening look.

• Finish the look with the right accessories.
Use pocket squares or lapel pins that pick-up a colour from the jacket, trousers or shoes to create a complete and stylish outfit.
