For men living in the Mediterranean, shorts suits have been worn season after season. For a thoroughly modern look, the skinny fit or slim fit suit shorts are huge this season. It’s time to ditch the traditional shorts worn with a sweatshirt or with a T-shirt. The reason being, the tailored suit shorts this summer are cooler than ice-cream.
Skinny Suit with Shorts
The skinny fit suit jacket with a single-breasted 2 button fastening and a matching tailored fit suit short is a perfect start. It’s time to stand out in the crowd. The colours play a big part and are down to personal choice. Start off with either navy blue or light grey. Then go from there. Go for the common fabrics used which are 70% Polyester,30% Viscose, very machine washable. For hot summer days, the best fabrics to go for are a mixture of Linen and Cotton. These fabrics are always breathable and feel great.
Mix and Match
The suit short is an indispensable item for the summer wardrobe. For me, it gives a sense of a jet-set style. You can mix and match your suit top with another suit short. Juts adding variety to your look and staple pieces. The key is to match your shades. So when purchasing your suit shorts I would go for three sets, three different key colours that you want. Then play around with the sets so you can see how versatile the collection is.
It just comes to what your work allows. This is a very seasonal collection. So you might as well embrace it while it’s hot. You can team your suit shorts with two keytops. The cashmere sweater or your classic shirts. Depending on your suit colour you can add floral shirts. You can also add a vest and tie. There are no limits on how much you want to dress up with your suit short. There are no rules, it’s just how you want to present your message. This summer and many more the suit short look is the way forward.
H.E MANGO, TOPMAN and REISS offer a great variety right now. If you’ve got money to spare Raf Simons certainly will raise your summer gear to a super edgy look.
