5 ways to wear a suit for any occasion

Suits are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe as they are the perfect outfit for any occasion. Whether you’re going to work or a special event, suits are able to make you look stylish instantly without putting in much effort. Though the suit is essential, it’s the details that make a difference. From denim shirts, knitted ties to white sneakers, it’s how you style your look that will turn it into a sleek ensemble. Here are 5 ways to wear a suit to any occasion so you can look stylish wherever you go.

Office Days

When it comes to your office attire, suits are always a staple but that doesn’t mean you have to wear the same look everyday. For a stylish ensemble, stay away from the white shirt and go for something darker with a knit tie that matches your suit. Go for a sleek pair of shoes to finish of your look.

Get the look: Paul Smith suit (HK$5,366), Glanshirt shirt (HK$1,820), Bottega Veneta tie (HK$1,080) and Church’s shoes (HK$3,966).

Date Night

Casual Fridays
