Any style-conscious gent will already know that separates are big news for the seasons ahead. Perfect for those who like to get the very most out of their clothing, separates – i.e. combining non-matching tees and trousers – will not only breathe new life into your existing tailoring collection, but are perfect for creating a wealth of smart-casual or formal looks for a variety of occasions.
However, while anyone can put together two different garments, it takes a little more thought to get the color/fabric combinations right. So, to ensure you are successful, I am here to fail-safe separates pairings that utilize pieces the majority of us will already have in our wardrobe.
We all have that Khaki trouser with us, which we wear to our work or a formal setting. It’s formal, we know we are bound to use it only at formal occasions. Aren’t we tired of just pairing it with our blazers and formal shoes and classic oxford shirts? So here I show you how to try this important piece of neutral separate with a casual tee shirt.
Perhaps the most classic and timeless of any neutral combinations, a black tee shirt with khaki trousers is a match made in heaven. Perfect for both formal and informal events, this sleek and simple pairing is a foolproof option that any man can pull off successfully. Whether worn to the office or for drinks at the weekend, these versatile and masculine hues will ensure you always look confident and stylish.
I am wearing a classic Dsquared2 chest print tee shirt from Fervour store located at Lavelle Road, Bangalore with my khaki trousers. This look is simple and at the same time its uber cool. Just as effective in the winter as it is in summer, this eye-pleasing pairing will have you looking your best whatever the occasion.
Best for those who like to appear smart and understated, black, khaki and white – when combined together – is the ideal combination. Yet while monochrome separates may instantly conjure images of the boardroom, by making a few alterations, you can also wear them off-duty.
Perfect for a day date or nights out, when you want to dress practically but look sharp, try switching your tee shirt with a black shirt and your dress shoes for a more relaxed silhouette, such as leather loafers or trainers. To give your look an extra injection of flair and personality, add some wrist band and classic sunglasses. When it comes to creating your outfit, it’s worth remembering, this combination works both ways.
This summer-ready separates combination screams Summer Safari. To make your outfit more casual, roll your trouser hems a couple of times if its long and wear sockless with sneakers. It’s imperative you get the fit of your jeans/trousers right. Skinny cuts are great for those who want to make a style statement. A black sporty watch and some casual matching beads adds that extra charm.
Neutral combinations when donned right, is a perfect example of balanced fashion. Try these three neutrals in any combination and you will never get it wrong. Separates are ideal for those men who like to dress smart and refined on a daily basis, without having to resort to a suit. Not only will mixing and matching your tees and trousers help get the most out of your tailoring collection, separates can also be dressed up or down effortlessly to suit the occasion. Just to remind you again, those slim fit formal trousers are not just for your formal attires. Try it like how I did it with my Dsquared2 tee and you won’t be dissapointed. Let’s try this look and keep the weekdays or weekends stylish
