For colour­ful char­ac­ters

You don’t have to be an ex­travert to stand out – a splash of colour here or there can help you make a state­ment with­out say­ing a word. Here are a few ideas to add a bit of bright­ness to your busi­ness wardrobe

$2,300 GUCCI – VEL­VET BLAZER MRPORTER.COM This slim-fit stretch-cot­ton vel­vet blazer is a suave al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional black, grey or dark blue jack­ets. Made in Italy from plush bur­gundy vel­vet, this two-but­ton blazer by Gucci in­cludes three in­ter­nal pock­ets as well as a chest welt and two front flap pock­ets. But what is re­ally eye-catch­ing is the lus­trous satin lin­ing, which has been printed with a rich flo­ral de­sign.

$302 EUGENIA KIM – GEOGINA FEDORA NET-A-PORTER.COM Cel­e­brated New York City de­signer Eugenia Kim is many celebri­ties’ go-to girl for ac­ces­sories, with the likes of Bey­oncé Knowles, Char­l­ize Theron, Madonna, Gwyneth Pal­trow and Sarah Jes­sica Parker among her fans. Her hats in par­tic­u­lar have brought her fame in the fash­ion world, in­clud­ing this el­e­gant fedora, which takes the so­phis­ti­cated ap­proach in its use of colour. Brushed an­tique rose wool felt is fin­ished with a clus­ter of blush flow­ers and black gros­grain ribbon.

$690 J.M. WE­STON – 281 LE MOC SUEDE LOAFERS MRPORTER.COM French lux­ury shoe man­u­fac­turer J.M. We­ston has been a footwear force since 1891, and while the ma­jor­ity of its men’s range can per­haps be de­scribed as ‘safe’, there are a few ex­cep­tions to the rule. The com­pany’s loafers in par­tic­u­lar can brighten up any out­fit, with shock­ing pink, turmeric yel­low and pa­prika or­ange ef­forts within its ranks. Th­ese bold red Le Moc loafers are sure to stop on­look­ers in their tracks.

$125 ETRO – PAIS­LEY-PRINT POCKET SQUARE MRPORTER.COM Many con­sider pocket squares a sta­ple of men’s busi­ness getup, and Etro does not dis­ap­point with its Pais­ley print de­signs. Full of char­ac­ter, the prints per­son­alise any suit jacket, made from fluid silk-twill and with stitched rolled edges. The Pais­ley de­sign comes in var­i­ous colours and styles, with pink, green, yel­low and blue ver­sions read­ily avail­able.
