WITH A SEASON OF SPORTING events ahead of us, make sure you score big in the sartorial stakes with our essential sports-inspired edit. From cricket-style looks to classic all-white ensembles and smart finishing touches, we’ll help you stay ahead of the game

ON THE RIVER

The Henley Royal Regatta is a great place to show off your sartorial flair. Get your outfit looking shipshape with a tailored jacket and check shirt, or go nautical with a crisp seersucker jacket and plain shirt

STYLE ALL-ROUNDERS

Whether you’re batting, bowling or simply spectating, look to classic cricket style for a new spin on summer dressing. Cable knits, sporting whites and cotton slacks in neutral or conventional shades (navy, tan, grey) are our favourite seasonal style hits

PAIR UP

On cooler days, layer a sleeveless cotton knit over a crisp short-sleeved shirt for a winning combination. Keep the look laid back with your top button undone

FIELD DAY

Long, lazy days call for a relaxed approach to summer dressing. A throw-on cable knit and easy slacks or a check blazer and casual trousers are this season's game changers

GET SMART

A blazer and simple polo shirt in dark hues bring a hint of formality to post-match celebrations

GAME, SET, MATCH

With the Wimbledon Championships under way, take your style cues from classic British lawn sports. Aim for a sartorial grand slam with simple, pared-back separates in a neutral palette

MATCH POINT

Clean and crisp, white separates are an ideal off-duty option for relaxed weekends. Note: a contrasting polo shirt makes the look instantly wearable

Quirky detailing – a contrasting collar and cuff – earns a simple polo shirt extra style points
