The Look: Chilled

Instant change-ups that add style and improve comfort, when you want to take it easy.


MAKE SOME ROOM
While an almost perfect fit is ideal for work wear, play around with baggier options for your downtime duds. Here, cargo pants not only give you added room to move, they’re also handy for stowing small items – a plus for the occasions when you’d rather leave your backpack at home.

KEEP A COOL HEAD
Style need not suffer in the face of practicality. When you’re clothing yourself for warm and humid weather, the less material you have on, the better. A lightweight linen shirt with a hood, worn over rolled-up chinos and sandals, keeps you comfortable and shows off the trend awareness of its wearer.

PILE UP SMART
Layering becomes impractical the moment you start to perspire. Keep your personal heat insulation to a minimum by only layering the thinnest fabrics. Wear a lightweight cardigan over a cotton T-shirt with a loose neckline for optimal comfort.

OBSERVE A PATTERN
Solid-coloured pieces can be enhanced by matching them with a bold-patterned element. Use a lightweight cotton pullover with bold stripes to achieve this effect.

ENLIVEN WITH COLOUR
Wearing a piece in a vibrant colour like red can make your outfit pop without appearing over-the-top. The trick is to match it with pieces that are neutral – like khaki.
