Summer is here and so is the heat! Although summer months call for a more relaxed and laid back vibe, it can’t be translated into clothing as there is no excuse for unprofessional attire at workplaces. Every workplace has a different dress code, but if you want to make a statement it’s very important to stand out and what better way to do it than take the summer months as an excuse to get experimental and trendy with suits.
The thumb rule :
First and foremost it’s very important to know what to look for in a summer suit. When choosing a summer suit, the key is to opt for a lightweight fabric, preferably even light colored. Try to go for something unlined or even half lined. Though it will be less bulky and may provide less form, but will also provide ventilation and help to keep cool in this scorching heat. Another tip to remember is to give preference to loosely woven fabrics as they provide more air flow.
Summer suit colours, fabrics and trends :
Lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton are ideal for the summer although, a cotton linen blend would be more functional for workplace attire as linen has a tendency to get wrinkled easily. The most popularly worn colours to be worn in the season are Khaki, Beige, summery light Greys and baby Blues. For a semi formal attire, we would recommend the Seersucker suit for its fun playful stripes and airy feel. The chambray and fresco suits are recommended for a more formal look.
If you are open to experiments:
Feel like a lazy Sunday but have to go for a brunch? Try the new short suit trend for a semi formal, more relaxed look.
Want to go slightly bolder and make a statement? Experiment with a printed suit on a night out.
Pezalli says: Attention to detail is a must when it comes to being well dressed in a suit, so don’t forget to accessorize with statement accessories like pocket squares, bright socks, patterned ties, interesting watches, sunglasses and tie pins.
