Just Some of the Little Things

Need a little ‘something-something’ to finish off that ensemble? You’re in luck! This #FashionFriday is all about spring accessories!

Just the smallest features can make all the difference. If you’re going for a bit of a more demure look we’d suggest something like a slate grey two piece suit. BUT, why stop there? We think that a slate grey would work well with rich purple hues. Just by pairing a plain grey suit with a purple tie, pocket square and socks would look gorgeous.

The colours are just so complimentary and work beautifully! It brings out the strong grey hues whilst brightening up the whole look with the full-bodied and rich purple. You don’t need to stop there either. We have an incredible selection of ties that range from colours to patterns.

They are of the highest quality from Ted Baker and JD Silks. With careful and deliberate crafting, each tie has its own personality. Each tie can bring something fun and new to any ensemble. It’s that time of the season where boldly patterned ties are a must! Even switching it up with a simple block colour can make such a difference. Pairing bright primary colours with monotonous greyscale hues is becoming popular for a reason. Contrasting two very different colours can have a very cool outcome.

But don’t forget, with a grey suit x purple tie combination, don’t be afraid to include some purple socks!


Plus, with short legged trousers or chinos with rolled up hems, it’d look very on trend with some bold socks and dress shoes. It’s an easy way to achieve a clean but exciting look which is why it’s popularity is growing with trendy modern fashion-forward men and women. There are so many different things you can do with it, all you need is a little creativity!

Another colour combo we really like is Mustard yellow x Navy blue. Cooler hues seem to compliment warmer hues all the while adding a certain edge.

We hope you have some better clues on how to finish styling your spring look! We’d look forward to seeing you at our John Douglas Showrooms on Chestergate, in Macclesfield!
