PARADIGMS OF CASUAL CLOTHING: WHICH DO YOU WEAR?
Clocks have gone forward, the mercury is rising, and the sun shone for a whole eight minutes last week, all of which can only mean one thing. No, forget the beach body It’s time to make sure our suits (not our stomachs) are summer-ready.
Although casual clothing is far more susceptible to fashions than tailored clothing, it is possible to organize it into certain groups, or paradigms.
These groups, such as preppy clothing or workwear, often have their roots in particular parts of the world or periods of history – but such is the variety of brands today that they are all effectively on offer.
I would suggest that it is worth the reader keeping these paradigms in mind when deciding what casual clothing to buy into.
Because while many of them overlap, each has its own aesthetic – in terms of cut, texture and colour – and this can make them hard to mix together.
Of course, a suit is a year-round essential that transcends time and trends, but that’s not to say when it comes to dressing for inclement Spring and later, sun-soaked summer – months, there aren’t a few smart choices to be had.

Enter chinos, the epitome of classic wardrobe staple. Somewhere between denim’s casualness and tailoring’s smarts, chinos go up or down depending on what they are paired with“Chinos can cater to whatever look you want,”
For a sharp but casual approach, wear them with a layered top half – T-shirts, overshirts,bomber jackets. But if the occasion calls for smartness, opt for a slimmer fit with a tucked-in T-shirt and a blazer. Tonal points if the colour coordinates, but don’t be afraid to mix-and-match either.”
To do its job correctly, everyday denim needs to check off a lot of boxes. It should be simple, but not boring. Fitted, but not too tight. Interesting, but not make a statement. And above all, it should go with absolutely everything.
Every well-dressed adult knows that the key to looking good for the long-haul is actually keeping your clothes on. A stylish belt saves any embarrassing slippages and can also be used to add a point of interest to an outfit.
