How to wear a suit outside the office hours
Nothing serves me better than a classic, tailored suit. It’s great for tackling the in between seasons weather, works particularly well with a crisp white shirt but looks equally as chic paired with a t-shirt and trainers.

When it comes to how to wear a suit outside the office hours, it’s really simple. First, forget the neatly pressed shirt or blouse underneath. The bravest suit-wearers are in fact ditching their tops altogether, wearing their jackets buttoned or belted and nothing else.

Dressing down a suit doesn’t get any easier than adding a t-shirt. In the cooler months, swap your t-shirt for knitwear and cardigans.  This is a great opportunity to play with different texture and colour combinations. Make sure you opt for lightweight knitwear if you don’t want to ruin the slim silhouette of your suit.

It goes without saying that adding trainers to a suit significantly takes the look down a notch and gives it a fashion-forward spin. You could go for something like a classic Stan Smith, or choose something fancier – Gucci perhaps?

As always, the high street has come up trumps again with plenty of options to choose from, offering something for everyone and at every budget. You would have probably seen me wearing this Topshop checked suit first on Instagram Stories (hey, it’s @launeden). You can buy the jacket and the trousers separate, if you’re not particularly keen in a certain piece or your budget doesn’t stretch that far.

I’m wearing mine with a ribbed funnel neck top and ankle boots for a chic and slightly dressy outfit. How would you wear yours?
