Which is why having the ability to style mismatched jackets and trousers will be very handy for us dapper gents. A change to your suit wearing game can be very refreshing, which is why we’ve created a guide on how to wear separates, so you don’t look like a fashion disaster.
The problem of styling separates is you’re working with pieces which may not complement one another. In order to not make any mistakes you need to make sure the colours you choose complement each other. Start off with colours available in neutral tones, as this will help versatility when matching your separates.
Navy Jacket and Beige Chinos:
This type of coordination is one of the easiest choice to go for, as beige is a neutral colour and complements navy very well. This type of combination is a very common choice many gents go for, but in order to switch up your look why not add a touch of colour. A pocket square in a emerald green, pink or red would spruce up the navy and beige combination.
This navy double face flannel would be an ideal choice. Why not team it up with a white shirt and red pocket square.
Navy Jacket and Grey Trousers:
This is another easy combination, especially if you’re just starting to wear separates. When choosing your trousers, its essential you go for a grey which isn’t too light or too dark, as you want to create an distinction between the two colours.
This navy geometric structured knit would be the perfect choice. Complete the look with a blue shirt and a blue patterned tie.
Tweed and Denim:
Tweed and denim is a great balancing combination, especially during the autumn and winter season. This type of combo is ideal for those who like to take the more casual and rugged look.
