What to Wear in the Summer Heat

Posted on May 09 2018

The recent Bank Holiday sunshine has caught many off-guard and, whether you’re heading back to the office in this unseasonable heat or the thought of wearing a suit to an upcoming formal function has got you hot under the collar, there’s no need to worry! Here’s our handy guide to staying – and not just looking – cool this summer: 

  1. Chose the Right Material

First things first, whilst weight and material are both important considerations when choosing a comfortable suit, breathability should be the single biggest influencer. A suit that can keep you fresh is worth its weight in gold and you’ll reap the rewards when you’re in the hot summer sun.

  1. Choose Colours Carefully

It’s obvious but a rule that bares repeating; lighter colours will keep you cooler. There are loads of light-coloured suits that are in fashion at the moment including pink, sky-blue, green, grey and more.

Recommended: Multi Check 3 Piece Suit

  1. Lining Matters

The lining of a jacket essentially adds another layer to your outfit, however some lining is recommended to prevent your shirt from sticking to your jacket. Choosing a half lined jacket will give you freedom of movement without trapping the heat.

  1. The Legacy of Linen
