Best-dressed trendwatch - blazers and chinos

Best-dressed trendwatch - blazers and chinos

As the entries come in, some sartorial patterns are taking shape. No surprise that the classic light chinos and jacket combination is starting to feature strongly - it's a look that can be adapted in a variety of ways, whatever your personal style. Here's three ways to wear it, courtesy of my-wardobe.com 

 

1 The all-rounder
One of our 'Editors Choice's' in the magazine, this blazer by Joseph (£565) looks just as good worn open as it does fastened. Laden with enough pockets to last you a lifetime, this is a buy that will suit any situation. The dark stone chinos by A.P.C. (£170) provide this look with a  year-round appeal, and has the versatility to match most of your existing wardrobe.

 

 

2 For Friday's meeting
You can't beat a nicely fitted double-breasted jacket, and this one by Our Legacy (£315) is a great entry-level option for those still a little wary to dip their toes in the water. A black wool mix with buggy lining and all the trimmings, this always looks best fully-buttoned. The stretch cotton slim fit chinos by Acne (£160) complete the look, and with a 3% Lycra blend are designed to sit comfortably on anyone, provided you don't have rugby thighs.

 

3 For Sunday lunch
The straight fit of Ralph Lauren's navy cotton patch pocket blazer (£260) should suit most body types and the patch pockets and faded seam give it a nicely relaxed and casual feel that would suit a polo as well as a shirt. These slim leg chinos from Burberry (£149) are a great summer all-rounder - clean, simple and lightweight but still smart.
