Dressing up while dressing down

A suit, tie and captoe oxfords is a formal combination. But employing brighter colours can help lighten the look and avoid looking boring or stuffy,

Here I’ve used a two button, notch lapel, single-breasted blue suit (a very versatile piece in a man’s wardrobe) and a light blue end-on-end shirt as a blank canvas for a beautiful lightweight summer tie which I would otherwise struggle to pair with, say, a checked sport coat.

Espresso brogues round off the look, remaining formal but just casual enough to complement the rest of the outfit.
