Suitsupply High Summer Lookbook
Just in time for the warmest months of the year, Suitsupply have updated their SS13 lookbook with seven new high summer looks that show how to wear classic Italian tailoring with flair.
Special emphasis is placed on choosing the right fabrics, and with an endless variety of linen and lightweight wool on offer, Suitsupply have got you covered for the rising temperatures.
The first look features a brown linen Havana jacket in a muted plaid that serves as the perfect anchor for your colour play – all the while keeping you cool in the sun and allowing the gentle summer breeze to flow through your clothes. The shirt features an interesting club collar and the trousers are versatile slim navy cargos, which are not only practical but a huge trend for the upcoming autumn and winter.
Accessories include a suede/leather mix brown/navy bag that nicely picks up the colour of the trousers and the shoes, along with a hybrid loafer/monk strap in chocolate leather. The whole outfit is tied together with a cream pocket square and a colourful tie clip to grab your attention.
The second look is again smart-casual but features essential summer white cotton chinos with a similar blazer and fun accessories. The crumpled navy cotton scarf adds interest and a touch of nonchalance to your look whilst the straw trilby keeps you both looking and feeling cool.
The third look shows you how to do casual wear in a sophisticated manner by substituting the blazer for a slim-fit cardigan. Everything about the look screams elegance – from the effortless pattern mixing of the checked shirt, striped tie and twisted belt to the classic red, white and blue colour palette.
Other details that highlight the strength of the look are the careful tie bar placement and the belt tying trick. In order to keep it summer-appropriate, the shoes are muted navy espadrilles and the cuffs and sleeves are rolled up.
The rest of the looks are in the same vein, but with the difference of demonstrating how to effectively incorporate unexpected layering in the summer by including cotton-cashmere shawl collar cardigans and lightweight macs.
Of course, there are also many bags, colourful socks and belts to choose from, but the collection’s strength lies in the combining of classic pieces in unexpected ways in order to present yourself with flair and confidence.
