Style of the Week: Perfect pairings
The trousers-and-tee combo: it’s always a winner, right? Nothing beats basics, we say, although the summer drop from Mr P. is going one step further. This chic own-label brand from award-winning online store Mr Porter is bringing you a refresher of those trousers and tees that just might be getting a little old right now. Who doesn’t love a bit of an upgrade every now and then?
So, let’s have a gander at this new collection then, shall we. It features seven pieces that really do give you everything you need: style, comfort and that all-important touch of class. We love the Johnny-collar cream knit polo, a perfect pairing with the cotton-twill trousers (for that transition from ‘midday lunch at the marina’ to ‘cricket with the guys’), while the classic grandad shirt maximises comfort, fitting you right in with the current baggy trend. Enviable outfits are made effortless with these pieces – and we certainly enjoy nothing more than capitalising on our grandad’s style.
For a bolder statement, look for a pop of colour and some darker trousers. The camp-collar shirts offer a block colour or two original prints; the jungle leaf shirt is a winner in our book, alongside the linen slim drawstring trousers. Did someone say practicality and style? Go ahead and shun any fear of prints or dark shades and embrace the flair.
It’s no easy feat, but it looks like the trusty shirt and trousers medley has been transformed by Mr P. You’re welcome.
