If you're going to wear a suit this summer, you're probably going to want to break it down into seperates for a few reasons 1) Life's too short to wear a full suit all the time 2) For the sake of keeping your body temperature as far away from heat stroke levels as possible 3) Well, because its fun.
Menswear Influencer Blake Scott recently partnered with Jack Spade to show you how to wear separates, and he broke it down to a silhouette that's achievable for any guy.
Are you that guy that wears a tweed jacket when its hot because you don't have any other options? Don't be that guy.
The first rule of thumb is to always be weather appropriate to take out the sweat factor - this lightweight blazer does just that. Not only that, but it also compliments the soft blues picked up in the shirt and pocket square. If you're going to dress down a shirt and tie, making sure that your pieces compliment each other in subtle ways like this are sure to add a bit of formality.
Most guys are worried about dressing down too much when they're wearing jeans during the work week. For creatives, consultants, and guys who work in a casual office environment, dressing up your look with accessories will cover any self-doubt - no fees included.
The right watch, sunglasses and wrist accessories are essential. The fact that you're fully equipped with everything you'll need for the day will make you a man worthy of doing business with. This includes a great tote bag for your laptop, phone charger, and all of the other essentials needed for the modern man to take over the world.
