The summer months are here and with them come an undoubted vibe of ease and relaxation. Summer is a great opportunity to branch out into different colors and fabrications. Lighter colors like khakis and light grays will help reflect heat instead of absorbing it. Summer is also the perfect time to start introducing color, vibrancy, and boldness into your wardrobe.
A sister shade to the tried and true charcoal gray, this color will work well with almost any fabric for summer. Try a light gray fresco suit with a bold tie and pocket square for a dapper look that is perfect for the office.
Move away from the darker navy suit staple and be daring with shades of blue. This attention-grabbing, yet still refined shade is ideal for adding a youthful and fun flare to your look. Baby blue goes best with linen and a blue & white seersucker is a classic look for summer.
A go-to color for summer and spring, the khaki suit is perfect for any daytime event. Though you should avoid wearing this color in the evening (as it runs the risk of looking informal), the khaki suit looks extremely pulled together with the proper accessories. Wear your khaki suit with a blue-and-white striped button-down shirt and a navy tie, or a pink button-down shirt with a patterned tie.
Shades of Red
Red is popping up more and more in men’s suiting this summer. The SS14 runways were filled with cherry, firetruck, crimson and primary red menswear in every designer’s collection, from Burberry Prorsum to Dolce & Gabbana. If you already have a strong arsenal of basic suit shades in your closet, perhaps the red suit should be your next move!
This rich and saturated color will work well for summer and seamlessly transition transition into your fall wardrobe. Marc Jacobs and Moschino are coining the berry suit as a staple of men’s summer fashion. And why wouldn’t they? If burgundy is considered a neutral suit color, then berry is burgundy’s wild-child half brother. A berry suit will undoubtedly make a statement.
