Summer Suits For Great Style - Defining What It Means To Be A Stylish Gentleman

Truth be told, when the summer months come a lot of men find it hard to keep up with their styles or just to suit up with comfortability and maintain elegance. Keeping up with great style in suits can be hard to achieve if not well-informed. 


Even during the hot summer season, you can still look stylish, smart, sharp, and more importantly professional. You don’t have to go for sloppy attire to look and stay cool during this season. The following simple fashion tips and tweaks will help you pull through the summer with your outstanding style, as Yves Saint Laurent said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”


The Right Fabric For Summer Suits

When the hot season is here, your wardrobe should take a turn too. At this time you should be keen to go for lightweight materials that ensure breathability and flexibility. There are many options that gentlemen have. To start with, a 100% linen suit is the best consideration for the summer. Linen is thin and more comfortable which makes it the go-for material in the summer.

Tropical wool is also great for the summer period. This material too is breathable. It is known for its durability and softness. A cotton-linen suit is also great for keeping cool and avoiding irritation of the sweltering weather.

Summer Suits Colors

It is obvious that darker suits are a no-go zone during the summer. Lighter colors are preferred since they do not absorb heat but rather reflect it off. You may opt to go for; light gray, khaki, baby blue, maroon, the light shades of red, among other brighter colors of your choice.

Best Structure For Summer Outfits

Most suits are generally designed as fully lined. During the summer period, it is advisable to go for the unlined or half-lined suit. This provides more ventilation and minimizes heat without greatly compromising your elegance.
