If you work in a more creative or more relaxed office then you may find it tricky to get the balance between something that's not a suit but not too casual either. This look will take you from the office to your drinks date after work seamlessly. The trousers are cotton which give less of a "half a suit" feel, the shirt is fitted and not quite as formal as a cutaway collar business shirt, the cardigan with contrast trim adds a contemporary finish and you could add a knit tie for a little more formality if needed.

Turn up to meet your date for cocktails looking suave and sophisticated in your slim fit shirt and sleek trousers and blazer. Keep shoes and belt understated, and let your outfit fizz by tucking this brightly patterned pocket square into your jacket pocket.

Surprise your date and take her for a fun Mad Hatter's afternoon tea at the Sanderson hotel. In the surreal surroundings stand out by keeping it deliciously simple mixing the cotton trousers, pale pink tee and fine knit cardigan. Add a bit of magic with a metallic finish perforated leather card holder.

To a poetry night you take your girl,

So let your stylish self unfurl,

Casual not scruffy is the brief for this date,

And in the outfit above you'll look great!

(Fingers crossed the standard of the poetry will be of a rather higher nature than mine!)

Using the same basis as the cocktail outfit but adding a classic grey merino wool sweater, you can't go wrong with such a versatile piece and it performs it's duty perfectly here for a semi casual dinner date. Combine with a Margiela brass and leather ring to express your individuality.
