1 Go for comfort
You are much better off wearing something that you’re comfortable in. A well-worn two-buttoned option gives you a chance to create that broad-shouldered, narrow-waisted look. For a more casual look, mix and match blazers and trousers in complementary colours. A dark blazer with light coloured pants is a winner.

2 Pick lace-up shoes
In the shoe department, lace-ups are a must – absolutely avoid boots or loafers. Brogues are increasingly acceptable. The colour of the shoes doesn’t need to exactly match your outfit, but it should match your belt. For the brave, two-toned shoes are a great way to express yourself in style!
Buy: Two-tone shoes, Dhs825, Hackett, The Dubai Mall, (04 325 3237)

3 Avoid black
When it comes to your suit, avoid black. The colour is far more appropriate for a black-tie dinner event and the early evening sun is more likely to make you break into a sweat. Navy and royal blue work well at the races – as do lighter, even pastel shades.
