Summer Suits In spring
The though of spending Summer in a suit may seem like a strange thing to do, but a high quality tailored two-piece can inject some much-needed pizazz into your predictable warm weather wardrobe equation. The main focus is to take it from classless to classy is incorporating the all-important combination of sleek silhouettes, vibrant colours and, of course, breathable fabrics.
From last season’s hero, the heritage check, to last year’s long lasting gingham, checks aren’t budging from our wardrobes yet again this season. And for SS19, we are loving this baby-blue suit in a subtle gridline check. Underneath an oversized blazer goes a subtle splash of neon yellow for a nod to the 80s, add a designer velour bum bag in the waist to break up all the different prints. For accessories, go old school to add some kitschy fun: pointed white boots and super-slim framed sunnies sleek up the ensemble.
This whole ‘utility’ trend has done the rounds on every platform of social media this year, and we’re enjoying this latest little taster of summer suiting. We love the colour contrast stitching which adds to the retro vibe of an ice-white two-piece (we are also loving the wide-leg trouser, long length blazer and leather belt look). To finish off, it’s about clashing up the look with eclectic influences, so even a pair of scruffy old trainers will do. This is a mixture of the old and the new, classy but yet preppy, formal and also relaxed. To summarise… we absolutely love it!
Blue is the warmest colour
And finally, for the most deliciously 80s thing to ever happen to your smart wardrobe? Go for a the ever comfortable oversized suit in the deepest shabby-chic turquoise you can find. Team this with a retro style cropped trouser and contrasting white buttons. This may be a throwback, yes, but it also so on trend that you will feel fab and fleek no matter what the occasion. Play up on the colour palette by adding some white into the outfit. Why not try some white frame sunglasses teamed with some white trainers to finish this ensemble off perfectly.
