One Suit Four Ways - Styling The Man In My Life!

Friday 13 December 2013

Last month we were invited to take part in M&S's latest campaign, one suit four ways. My dad has been buying his suits from Marks and Spencer for over 20 years so I know they're great quality. The challenge was to style my man in four different ways for four different occasions using the same suit. 

If you haven't met my boyfriend before, brace yourself for this picture heavy post, the next 8 images are all about him...

Outfit 1 - Formal
How dapper is this look!? The slim fit grey herringbone suit works perfectly with Sam's pale blue shirt, navy tie and leather shoes from Clarks. This was the easiest look to style and when worn like this, it makes the perfect outfit for a wedding or a job interview. *SWOON*

Outfit 2 - Casual Winter Weekend
The suit jacket is extremely versatile and when paired with an oxblood knit, black denim jeans and suede brogues, it helps to create a stylish weekend look. Since it's pretty chilly, I added a black beanie and plaid scarf to make sure he was cosy enough. The watch he's sporting is his favourite £1 vintage find.

Outfit 3 - City Break Shopping Day
I really wanted to create a casual look with the smart suit trousers. Sam usually wears a lot denim but I love how well these trousers work when worn like this. He's always in a basic tee so I added an unbuttoned burgundy shirt, his favourite blue shirt jacket and a pair of Converse. He has the perfect face for sunglasses so I also let him borrow my Clubmaster II's and the leather satchel we picked up in Bolivia! I think it's a great outfit to wear for a European shopping day.

Outfit 4 - Boys night out
My boyfriend isn't really one for wearing a shirt on a night out (unless it's unbuttoned and over a tee) but he still manages to look smart. These teal trousers are a little bit nicer than everyday denim and look good with the beige henley tee, suit jacket and leather shoes. The woolly hat is a nice addition of colour but it would obviously come straight off as soon as he reached the bar.

I hope you like the four different looks! Sam's wearing the super slim herringbone suit (£99) from the Marks and Spencer Limited Collection. It's beautifully lined and fits so well, such a bargain for less than £100! We couldn't be more impressed.

Have you tried styling your man before? Do you also love a man in a suit?
