After the harsh winter, it is now time to welcome the pleasant spring and summer. The long awaited season lightens not only your mind but also an enormous weight off your shoulders; the weight of sweaters and coats!
Summer suits are the way to go; play with the style, cut, fabric and colour to really stand out from the crowd. Here are few handy tips you can use to make your summer suits more fun.
Choose the right fabric: They say that a suit looks best in heavy fabrics like wool and cotton wool blends, however, it is time to wave good bye to these fabrics come summer. Linens , cottons and light weight tweeds are the most suited for the season. If plain linens are not for you, then choose pin stripe or check fabric. Don’t worry about a lighter fabric not falling that well, because our suits are made-to-measure they curve, nip and tuck around your body contours perfectly. A good option for summer is a Mohair fabric (of which we have several), this natural fabric breathes beautifully and keeps you cool in the height of the sticky summer.
Colours for spring/summer: Fashion forecasters predict the colours for every season.
The colours to flaunt this spring are whites, crèmes, beiges, and light shades of grey, light brick, pastel brown and fresh powder blue. I have put together a range of fabrics and colours that you must look at if you want to explore colour for your next suit; Linen-1 (white), Linen-5 (crème), Linen-19 (camel), Ivory-GVWN-31 (ivory), LGW-Plain-28 (ochre), VBC-121 (grey), CT-UK-9 (herringbone), LGW-Plain-31 (peach) and LGW-Plain-4 (beige).
Can you try this: "Men are looking for excitement in fashion," says Bottega Veneta, Creative Director Tomas Maier. If that is what you believe to be true, then here are some creative tips you might want to experiment with:
ï‚§ Floral, paisley or geometric tone on tone prints on your choice of linings.
ï‚§ Give your ties a rest! Flaunt the shirt with a wide open collar.
ï‚§ If you work in a creative business, how about a summer jacket with a pair of well tailored shorts?
ï‚§ If you love the length of your trousers and do not wish to crop them, try getting shorter on the length of the jacket? This instantly makes your suit look contemporary! Also you can then throw the jacket over jeans and a tee shirt on the weekends.
Well that’s about it, for now! Let’s get started for the summertime.
