Formal Shirts


A shirt has its advantages in both summer and winter due to its versatility and the number of ways it can be worn. Open, buttoned up, half buttoned, with the sleeves down, with the sleeves rolled up – there’s options for everyone. For a casual look you can easily sport a short sleeved shirt with a pair of plain joggers, finished off with some neutral plimsolls or boat shoes. Adding accessories like a matching cap can help bring the look together, and the colour scheme can easily be changed around to suit you.

Polo Shirt


Polo shirts originally started as sports wear before they were picked up as a staple item for the Beverly Hills elite, so it makes sense to pair them with something like joggers that are equally sports focused. Although polo shirts are often associated with smarter look, they’re easily dressed down with the right combinations.

Matching one with a pair of joggers in a lighter colour will give the overall look a less intense, and more relaxed, vibe. Then just finish off the look with a pair of trainers or plimsolls and add a few accessories like a cap to keep things looking laid back.

Smart-casual (ish)

Keeping colours as neutral as possible will help ensure that your outfit doesn’t fall in the overly relaxed department, and will help ground it into a semi-formal look. When picking your polo shirt, make sure it’s well fitted, buttoned up to the neck, and ironed.

For the joggers, choose a pair that are made from a thick, sturdy material in a dark colour like a grey or black to match neatly with the shirt. Throw on a good pair of sunglasses in a thin wire design to add a sophisticated element to the look, and finish off with a pair of loafers in a clean suede.
