Who wants to go open-necked shirt anymore? Unless it’s a summer ensemble it’s bad for business in every possible way. This crisp, white shirt and bold burgundy tie set comes with a tie clip and will look sharp underneath your new wool blazer. Buy it at Next.
What fuses casual and classic better than a crisp polo shirt? And fashionistas have selected sage-green as a go-to hue this year. This one is 100 per cent cotton, machine-washable and available in other colours if catwalk colour tips aren’t your thing. Buy it at Next.

A black waistcoat will add just that extra bit of sleek savvy to any jacket or shirt you want to wear, providing you can button it up after all the mince pies you scoffed over Christmas. This wool-blend one can be found at H&M.
You got plenty of practice opening your front door to the Amazon delivery driver over the festive season. This year look woken up and ‘with it’ even if you aren’t. And no, you won’t sign for your neighbour’s huge, heavy parcel. Send it packing while donning this royal-blue pure cotton one from Marks & Spencer.
It’s a big mistake to think people don’t notice your footwear, they do. So take a step in the right direction with a classic pair of Oxford brogues. Worn with indigo jeans slightly turned up, take everything in your stride, quite literally. This brown pair can be found at Marks & Spencer.
