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:
- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- The Legacy of Linen
It’s been a firm favourite for decades and shows no signs of leaving our summer wardrobe anytime soon. Linen is the go to material for many looking to don a suit in the summer time. And with its lightweight feel and high breathability factor, you can see why.
