If you had told me years ago that I would be pining to find the perfect matching suit set, I would have thought you were crazy. I lean towards a very relaxed, casual style, and suits traditionally don’t fit into that—a stiff suit is meant for professionals with a strict office dress code, right? Not anymore. A perfectly tailored suit set is perfect for winter and an unexpected outfit choice for holiday parties. For summer, I am loving a relaxed-fit suit in playful proportions, styled more casually with sneakers and graphic tees. I’ve rounded up my favorite ways to style suit sets for summer below!
Shorts & Skirts
Matching suit sets that consist of skirts or shorts will instantly create a more casual look, and they’re perfect to wear during the heat of the summer.
Play with Proportions
Courtney of Always Judging has two classic examples of how to play with proportions while styling a suit. The oversized blazer offsets the bottoms and creates a relaxed look that can be worn for many occasions.
Pair Your Suit with Sneakers
Sneakers and flats are the “it” shoes of the season—possibly of the year—and add an instant chicness to any dressed-down look.
Patterns make any look more interesting! Try classic stripes or go even bolder with a checkered look.
