Fashion Tip: The Suite

Gentleman, fear office attire no more...
2010 has reigned in a whole new look and feel to men's dressing; stuffy ''matching'' suits are out - well coordinated ''outfits'' are in.

Our recent, Africa Fashion Week and the Spring/Summer 2011 menswear fashion week in Milan had one thing in common - checks. Clashed with colourful jackets, or vice versa, checks are the new stripes - but to avoid looking like a clown, keep the look muted. A grey sports jacket or short belted ''trenchcoat'' style, checked trousers in a grey/black tone and a crisp white shirt, will give you the look with less punch. But if you aren't brave enough to try checks, then you can still work on your 'mixed-suit' coordination - keep colours in the same family and you won't go wrong...here are the business-man-basics.

 

Important Tip: never wear more than 3 different colours.

Earth colours: shades of brown, khaki, cream.
Monochromatic tones: black, shades of grey, white.
Ocean colours: dark blues, lighter blues, shades of grey
