Get Back To Your Best With These 6 Smarter Wardrobe Styles
Posted on February 03 2023
It can be hard work getting back into the swing of things straight after the buzz and bounce of the holiday season, leaving most of us physically and emotionally (and often financially) exhausted. You’d be forgiven for resigning to your home comforts for longer stretches during the earlier weeks of the new year, slipping into your trusty sweats and joggers while you spend precious time recuperating and preparing for the year ahead.
But as we finally enter the second month of the year, we reckon it’s high time we all dust off the cobwebs and get back into our grooves; and that goes doubly for our collective attitudes towards our wardrobes! As always, we’re firm believers that the confidence and drive to get some forward momentum starts with our outfit choices, so we want to inspire you to make the effort once again with this carefully curated selection of smarter styles that are guaranteed to bring the very best version of you to the fore!
Valentino Blue Logo Embroidered Shirt
Valentino's commitment to luxury and timeless design shines through in this latest Logo Embroidered Shirt. The tone-on-tone ‘Valentino’ logo embroidery is really the only discerning detail to really set this piece apart, but it stands as a true testament to the legacy of the famous Maison that that’s all a shirt like this really needs to convince you or its value. It’s an absolute surefire hit for everything from office to occasion and everything in between, blending in or standing out as required. Indulge in the epitome of sophistication and invest in this classic Valentino smart shirt.
Valentino Black High-Neck Wool Knit Jumper
Who doesn’t love a good old, chunky turtleneck sweater? Sure they can be great loungewear options with their warm, embracing fabrics and shapes, but they can offer so much more in the contemporary wardrobe set-up. Valentino’s High-Neck Wool Knit Jumper sweater brings a welcome air of sophistication to a classic silhouette that’s been experiencing somewhat of a renaissance in recent times, achieving such an effect with its satisfyingly symmetrical design and subdued colour palette. All of these help it to adapt comfortably to situations where a smarter mode of dress may be preferred.
Balenciaga Black Cosy Cagole Mule
The perfect luxury mule should exist right at the intersectionality of comfort and style, effortlessly providing the former without compromising on the latter. And that’s exactly what Balenciaga’s Cosy Cagole Mules do so well - bring a real sense of accessibility to an intricately and very purposefully designed shoe, with its finely-engraved metal hardware and ‘arena’ creased-leather body. It forces a lesser-considered silhouette into the ‘smart attire’ conversation and does so with great aplomb. If you’re looking to introduce something a little more distinctive into your smart wardrobe rotation, Balenciaga’s featured mule could be just the style you’re looking for.
Saint Laurent Black Leather Thin Large Bag
OK, let’s just dispel any and all misconceptions that you can wing it with your accessories when it comes to making a concerted effort to really dress smart. A mismatching accessory will be noticeable and it will detract from the cohesiveness of your overall look. If anything, you should be aiming to go above and beyond with your wardrobe finishing touches. With that being said, you absolutely cannot go wrong with Saint Laurent’s look-defining Thin Large Bag, a chic and sophisticated accessory that personifies the luxury appeal of the famous label and is perfect for everything from office attire to outfits for weekend city breaks. All the quintessential hallmarks of the Saint Laurent brand are present and accounted for with the luxurious grained leather exterior and punctuating brass hardware taking centre stage.
Christian Louboutin Blue & Black Greggo Orlato Flat Oxford Shoes
Christian Louboutin’s Greggo oxford is the ‘Mr Reliable’ of Mr Louboutin’s footwear portfolio. It’s a style that’s synonymous with class and versatility and can always be counted upon for a vast array of situations and occasions. Our featured Greggo Orlato Flat Oxford Shoe is the latest evolution of this classic silhouette, riffing on the original design template with a collage of luxury fabrics, whilst staying true to the spirit of its forefather with its refined and elegant profile. Even with its latest makeover, Greggo is still the go-to choice for all your formal dressing wants and needs.
Saint Laurent Brown Suede Wyatt Chelsea Boots
Saint Laurent’s Suede Wyatt Chelsea Boots are perfect for the contemporary fashion aficionado who’s looking for a workable alternative to the more run-of-the-mill dress shoes. With an irresistible suede leather body and a satisfyingly clean profile, it’s more than capable of holding its own in smarter and sharper outfit ensembles. As an added bonus, this one’s perfect if you're looking for a shoe to complement a slightly more relaxed, smart-casual mode of dress (think dress-down Fridays at the office and evenings at the theatre). It’s the quintessential shoe for the quintessential Saint Laurent look too, matching perfectly with a pair of skinny jeans and a flowy silk shirt from the same label’s diverse catalogue.
