Style tips for her
Keep it classic, says James Kennedy, CEO at LK Jewellery. “It’s important that a timepiece is not ostentatious but conveys a classic, elegant style. A well-made, beautiful timepiece will not date and you can wear it daily for years.”
Flashy watches may look fun, but Kennedy advises keeping them for weekends. “It’s important jewellery in the workplace complements the outfit.”

Style tips for him
Investing in a custom suit begins with selecting the right cloth, says Sydney tailor Shane Rochefort. “Consider whether it’s to be worn year‑round.”
Feeling flash? “A patterned shirt can be worn with a tie that has a strong motif, as long as the tie has a solid colour base,” Rochefort says.
“French, or double, cuffs remain king,” says Rochefort of the current look in shirts. “And my customers are enjoying a French front, which is very clean on the chest, as opposed to having a placket.”
