STYLE ADVICE

Made In Chelsea style

By Gavin Jewkes, 6 April 2014

Alright, alright, alright… the Made In Chelsea lads don’t get things right 100% of the time, especially where style is concerned. But when they’re not peacocking down King’s Road in red chinos (with an obligatory bottle of champers in hand, natch), generally speaking, they look pretty sharp.

Here are 5 real-life style lessons we can learn from West London’s most camera-ready men:

1. There’s never a bad time to wear leather
When you head to a club without a cloakroom in it, leather jackets come into their own. Yes, wearing one on the dance floor means you’ll generate some serious heat, but keeping it on for the duration of your evening confirms to every one else in the room your unwavering stance on looking good.

2. A classic never dies 
Spencer Matthews knows a thing or two about a thing or two – namely, how NOT to treat a lady, and how to build an outfit out of simple, classic items. For instance, here’s Spenny in a crisp white tee and a cool pea coat; not only does he look smart, but if he wore exactly the same thing in 10 years time, it would still look good. And that, friends, is the advantage of timeless dressing.

3. The right outfit can take you from day to night with ease
Mark-Francis Vandelli once described the need for a live-in seamstress as ‘essential’, so it comes as no surprise that he is unfailing well turned-out. Even when he’s ‘off-duty’, he still looks like he’s waiting to march the red carpet. The result? A casual look that allows him to go from day to night without the need to go home and change.

4. Monochrome is king 
Keep things simple in black and white for a killer casual outfit that looks really effortless.

5. It’s the summer of the loafer
If your wallet won’t stretch to a pair of Gucci horsebit loafers a la Jamie Laing, there are plenty sharp (and inexpensive) options available here. Think of them as the upgraded espadrille.

The new series of Made In Chelsea begins on E4 at 10pm tomorrow night.
