See in the new year with a bang, in monochrome, shades of navy and deep plum – be it a sharply tailored look such as Giovanni’s velvet blazer (worn with a rollneck, for instant sophistication) or a more casual ensemble such as Harry’s metallic sweatshirt. Smart-casual dress codes call for a silk bomber and statement trousers, seen here on Dewi. The key is one element that shines. After all, if you can’t wear a silver jumper on New Year’s Eve, when can you?
