HOW TO STYLE SMART SHORTS the style off

We are back with another round of The Style Off series and this time, myself and Carl Thompson give our individual spins on how we style smart shorts and jumper from Menlook’s very own M Studio Range.

Check out our videos here:

These challenges were pretty tough, both items presented their own difficulties when finding complimentary colours and textures leaving me feeling like I don’t want to over do it and on the other hand still making an effort. When it comes to smart shorts you tend to lean more to smart wear but it can be tricky to nail this look when your not cruising on a yacht somewhere in the south of France sipping on a cheeky cocktail. I decided to swing it right back to the casual side of things with a selection of goodies from Zara’s streetwise collection.

Carl actually nailed it and came through with a solid smart look which portrays comfort and his fun, chilled and relax side to him which isn’t always what people associate with dressing up smart.

We also styled a cream jumper from Menlook which, to be honest, is a great stand alone to wear. I decided to rock it with an additional layer of olive green leather from Zara just to add a bit of dimension and spice it up that little bit more.
