When one thinks of a champagne drinker, a certain type automatically springs to mind. You know, the suave by nature kind. The good news? Everyone can channel some of that sophistication even if you’re not naturally so smooth. First, get yourself a grey suit jacket – satiny or a heritage-inspired check. Second, pair that with a simple white tee and thick, neutral chinos. Alternatively, nab yourself a cream turtleneck in a swooningly soft fabric like cashmere. Throw on a wool overcoat over the top (full marks if it’s camel or taupe) and again team with thick, muted colour trousers. If champagne says sophisticated, this outfit says best in class.
The hero of the contemporary drinks stash, if a weekly itinerary doesn’t include gin at some point, we’re worried. To us, gin means modern and understated. At the same time you reach for your Icelandic gin, reach for a longline, slouchy coat – a cocoon shape and a chalky charcoal hue. Combine this with a white shirt, simple pull-over and herringbone trousers cut above the ankle. Pair with gin’s favourite partner in crime – the white trainer. Crisp and clean, they’re like G&T itself.
