Summer Vibes – What clothes to wear in August?
Every day is a fashion show, and the world is your runway.
While navy, black and grey are considered the standard colours, this season, why not step out of your comfort zone and explore the world of colour? August is the best time of the year to introduce a new hue to your tailoring collection. Do you want to get inspired? Here is the top 3 my favourite colours for this month.
Shades of Blue
While the navy blazer is perhaps one of the most well-documented wardrobe staples, this season you should be considering something a little more vibrant. Ideal for those who want to venture into the world of colour without pushing their boundaries too far, the blue blazer (in bright or pale hues) is what you would call a happy medium. Regarding outfit options, you can go in two different directions. For something daring and summary, teamed up with white trousers and loafers when going smart, or coloured chinos and espadrilles at the weekend.
For those who wish to play it slightly safer (but remain just as stylish), team yours with lightweight grey trousers, a neutral coloured shirt and pair of suede Derbies.
The White Blazer
Subtle yet highly effective, the white blazer has, over recent years, developed into modern must-have. Oozing style and sophistication, it will add a Gatsby-esque twist to any warm-weather ensemble. A white blazer makes a versatile and timeless addition to any wardrobe, and will continue to get good use each spring/summer for many more years to come. Able to be dressed up or down while anchoring any colour under the sun, this contemporary essential will give your work-to-weekend attire a whole new outlook.
To incorporate into your outfits, we suggest inspiration from Jay Gatsby himself and going all out with a perfectly tailored white three-piece – the ideal suit for any summer event.
The Red Blazer
Perfect for those who like to stand out from the crowd, the red blazer is a sure-fire way of telling passers-by you mean business. Whether worn for a night out on the town or to dinner with your loved ones, this bold statement option will breathe new life into your summer-ready wardrobe. When it comes to styling, be sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the blazer take centre stage. A white shirt, grey trousers and brown loafer’s combination would make a sensible, everyday choice. However, for something more summer-appropriate, try combining with white jeans and a pair of suede drivers.
