Suits You

Suits you

A good suit will always look good; there's a reason it hasn't changed much in design over the last 100 years. But there's so much more you can do with it to maximise its versatility. Here's how to wear the John Lewis Tailored Flannel Suit in 3 very distinct and stylish ways.

1 The classic

It may be an obvious choice but a suit perfectly matched with a shirt and tie is perennially cool. White shirts go with everything and allow you to experiment with a snazzy tie without overwhelming the overall look. Other optional accessories to your look include smart belts, cufflinks and pocket squares for the final injection of panache.

2 The Italian job

There's no denying the Italians know how to dress with flair so channel their approach to suiting by swapping your shirt for a v-neck, a cardigan or a roll neck. It's a great way to dress down your suit for less formal days.

3 The seperation

For a more relaxed approach to suiting, separate it out and combine the jacket with chinos or tailored trousers. Mixing your suit jacket into an outfit that'd normally be considered casual lends your look a smarter note, getting you ready to head out for the evening. Braces will introduce a fun element to the outfit.
