Everyone loves a bargain, so in this edition of our How to Wear section, we seek to help you solve two conundrums: how to embrace a more casual style—without resorting to sweats and a T-shirt—and how to pull off a statement piece—without looking too flashy.

The solution? This printed shirt from the OG of idiosyncratic British tailoring, Sir Paul Smith. The silhouette of the shirt adds structure to the look, while the use of a cheeky print helps to dial down the formality by a couple of notches.

As for the latter, think camouflage and keep the rest of the look in the same colour palette as the base of the shirt’s print.
