Summer Separates

 

Summer events (especially weddings abroad) are becoming increasingly casual. This is actually quite a challenge for the male guests – how to respect the formality of the occasion without looking too business-like and/or getting too hot.

Lightweight cotton or linen trousers in pale colours: blue, grey or even pink. Ideally they should be narrow (but not skinny) and shorter than regular suit trousers so that they sit just above the shoe. A small (3cm) turn-up is a lovely addition.summer-separates-2

the shirt should be 100% cotton. Sleeves can be rolled up but ideally should be accompanied by braces for a more vintage look.

Jacket tip – next time you’re ordering a suit request a ‘cutaway front’. This will increase the arc at the bottom of the jacket – giving it more of a blazer look.


If you’re not going to wear a tie you should try and wear a pocket square – not just to add some colour and pattern to your look but to show you’ve made an effort.

Try going sockless. You’ll need the trouser length described above to pull it off.

Get ahead. Get a hat. A panama or fedora can be a great summery addition to separates – whilst protecting your head from the sun.
