Summer Wardrobe

Summer Wardrobe 2010The blustery days of spring turn into a distant memory when the weather warms up. And your warm winter suit, so helpful a few months ago, can soon seem too heavy to wear.

Keep your cool this summer—without losing your professional look—by crafting a summer wardrobe with style. Your tools?

Summer wardrobe-worthy fabrics in wool, linen, silk, and cotton.

Wool can still be your wardrobe’s best friend during the sun-friendly months. Simply keep to lightweight versions (look for tropical or summer weight fabrics) to retain the breathability of wool’s natural fibers without the warmth of the winter weights.

Linen fabrics offer a looser weave than wool, which lets air circulate to keep you cool without compromising style by dressing down. Minimize your linen suit’s wrinkles by tailoring the fit to your shape. Baggy trousers and an oversized coat will wrinkle more than a suit that moves with you.

Silks and silk blends drape beautifully and give your suit a fine shimmer—perfect for dressier settings. Fabrics blending silk and fine wool give the flexibility and lightweight feel of silk, with the shape and substance of wool.

Cotton fabrics work well for business casual attire. Paired with an oxford shirt, cotton suit fabrics offer relaxed comfort during the hottest weather.

Finely tailored clothing ensures that you look your best during the warmest months, whether in your favorite linen jacket and trousers or your summer-weight wool suit.
