For the past couple of menswear seasons we have seen a huge increase in tonal dressing. And, just as predicted, the effortlessly stylish and entirely accessible look seems to have taken off in a big way.

So, now that the autumn/winter season is truly in full swing, it’s time to embrace tonal dressing. Begin by choosing colours and designs that you really like because this trend is all about pursuing your own style. Also, tonal dressing works with absolutely anything; jumpers, trousers, trainers and even your accessories! Celebrate your personality by choosing pieces that will make you feel comfortable and confident.

This trend can be risky and sporting head-to-toe tonal pieces requires careful consideration. Get it right and you’ll be a sartorial king, choose the wrong hue of blue and you’ll have onlookers wondering whether you’ve put the outfit together on purpose.The trick is to juxtapose shades and textures to provide that essential contrast between pieces – do this and you’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons.

So, whether you choose to go down a classic all-over navy look, or bring things right up to date by reaching for beige; experiment this winter and watch others follow as you wear your tonal ensemble with confidence and panache.
