July 14, 2022 The Modern Summer Suit

It’s not too late to give a summer suit a try. You’ve heard us talk about the suiting trend for months, and today we share how to wear one specifically for the summer season.

The weather is warmer and color palettes are different, so we went searching for inspiration that met those needs. We also wanted to find styles that felt modern. That meant overlooking summer suits that feel traditional in silhouettes and colors.

What we found was a refreshing mix of suiting in lightweight fabrics paired with great layers and accessories. Here’s what we learned along the way.

Try a Shorts Set

A suit can have shorts! We love this for more casual outings like brunch.

Pair It with a Tube Top or Tank

Why not show off a little skin and your favorite jewelry?

Pick Summer Shades

Some colors automatically say summer, so stand out in brights like hot pink and sky blue.

Skip the Button-Up

Find a double-breasted version and skip the top completely. The suit can be the entire look in itself!

Add Neon Accessories

Amp up a neutral suit with neon accessories. We couldn’t style it any better than this.
