Essential Summer Accessories


Summer is in full swing which means lighter weight suits and buggy lined (half lined) or unlined jackets in the office, but there’s one question every sartorial enthusiast has: ‘How do I keep my look fresh?’ To put it simply; choose the right accessories to complement your look.

 Floral Ties

The floral trend has been around for a few seasons and is now making a colourful comeback. If you’re looking for a way to introduce a hint of summer into your formal look then the floral tie is a must-have. Ties are sometimes overlooked when putting an outfit together, but they’re the ideal opportunity to show off your own personality and flair and they can provide the perfect finishing touch.

The key to pulling off this look is coordinating your tie with your suit. Check out our key looks below for a few examples of how you can achieve a style statement for any occasion with a colourful floral tie pocket square combination.


Designer Cufflinks

As a general rule, double cuff shirts with cufflinks are typically for the office or on special occasions such as a wedding.  Usually, a pair of stylish silver cufflinks is all you need but in the summer why not change things up by adding a touch of colour to your outfit, or why not choose one of the many novelty cufflinks available to suit your own personal theme or interest.

Like any successful formal outfit, coordinating your accessories is the key to success. These stylish understated Tom English cufflinks add a stylish contemporary look to your summer wardrobe.


The Weekend Bag

Summer is the perfect opportunity for a weekend away and of course you’ll need a stylish yet practical bag to transport your clothes. Whether you’re driving or going on the train, a spacious and stylish carry bag is a must.

Our first pick is this Herringbone Weekend Bag by Gibson London (available in blue, rust and gold). This vintage style holdall was made in collaboration with Chapman bags and manufactured in England to the highest quality. Alternatively, this 100% leather holdall by Racing Green adds a luxurious sophisticated look. It features a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap for ease of use.

If you’re heading to the beach or simply to the shops this classic bag for life from British brand Racing Green is the ideal accessory.
