Being a European, it is difficult to imagine life without a blazer. But if you are attending a formal event or shopping in Soho, you may ask yourself how you can you manage the summer heat whilst still looking stylish in a blazer?
The Blazer should feature in anybody’s wardrobe and can be worn at any time of the year. Here are some tips on how to keep cool in the summer:
If Linen is well kept (beware of it looking weathered and like you have had it in your pocket for a few weeks) it can provide the perfect casual or smart jacket for the summer. If you are going for a formal look, head for the dark colors, and if going for a casual afternoon, go for the lighter option.
There are many colors available for any occasion. For added style, a casual silk pocket square will add that final touch. Remember, you don’t need to follow the rules of pocket squares (per my earlier article) just pop it in and the casual look will be perfect!
Most people are closer to blazers with shirts (myself included). During the summer don’t hesitate to try plain colored tee-shirts under a blazer! It is a cool (meaning keeping cool and also a cool (trendy) way to rock your blazer in the summer).
Caution, avoid colored tee-shirts the look is too casual for a blazer.
As always Massimo never disappoints. Elegant and stylish whilst keeping tn cool for the summer. If a meeting with your CEO or your bank manager how can you go wrong?
