Creative and unconventional ways to suit up

Playful ways to break the rules.

Wearing a suit need not necessarily be for formal occasions or work. Sometimes you want to add some class to everyday affairs and a suit is the perfect piece of clothing to jazz things up. At the same time, it is good to have a bit of fun and break the rules. Here are some suggestions on how you can switch up your style with these suits.

Perfect Equilibrium

For those who could never decide whether they prefer a single-breasted jacket or a double-breasted one, Dior Men creative director Kim Jones solves that conundrum with this sleek hybrid.

A Fine Balance

A masterfully hand-applied blend of hues creates a gradient effect that elevates the of-the-moment bumbag.

Winning Style

Hit a sartorial home run with a casual cotton suit that plays well with others – be they formal accessories or the casual add-ons shown here.

Monochromatic Mix

Play with polarity and punch up a smart black suit with the snowiest of sneakers.

Detail Oriented

The next step for luxe sneakers? Plenty of craft- oriented accents, such as the hand-stitched and textured details that are juxtaposed with sporty mesh in these sneakers.

Sign Language

Logomania will be sticking around for a while yet – accessories are a good way to get a (controlled) dose of a brand’s monogram.

Tonal Effect

Brown isn’t the easiest colour to wear – add crisp white pieces to brighten up the look and keep a camel-coloured ensemble sharp.

Time To Flex

The suits of today are cut for ease of movement – reason enough, we think, to jump for joy.
