We’ve all heard the phrase “timeless style” but do you know what it really means? In menswear, people like David Beckham are often used as a reference because he has a very simple approach to style that will never be outdated.

When it comes down to it, having timeless style is about paying attention to the small details, and today we’re giving you the insight into how you can achieve this look.

Colour Matters

The very first step to looking suave in a classic suit is to choose the right colour. This means staying away from the trendy, bright colours and rather opting for more neutral tones such as olive, nude and grey. Also look at traditional colours – navy and black – as these will always be classic.

Wearing a classic style doesn’t have to be boring and you can certainly add your character to it. Remember it’s all about the details, so bring your suit to life with a carefully selected tie and pocket square with a pattern such as houndstooth or polka dots.

Accessories

As men, we don’t really pay attention to accessories but these are the small details between looking good and knocking it out the ballpark. Push your classic style over the edge by adding a tie clip, cufflinks or suspenders.
