Wearing a tailored suit in summer

12 June 2014

This winter we saw a number of famous faces – such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Madonna – set the trend for tailored suits for women by teaming their well-fitted suits with fabulous accessories, and now we can look forward to seeing more and more embrace the summer version of the same trend. By turning trousers into shorts and cropping or rolling up the sleeves, you can turn your tailored suit into a stunning summer look.

Emma Stone, who was recently in the UK promoting her latest Blockbuster The Amazing Spider Man 2, was spotted teaming her tailored suit jacket with fitted skinny jeans and skyscraper heels, while Lucy Mecklenburgh attended a charity dinner wearing striped shorts with a matching striped blazer. Summer suits are a great way to experiment with patterns and colours while maintaining a chic and smart look. They can be paired with both heels and flats depending on the occasion, and you’ll have great fun mixing and matching shorts and jackets.

It’s not just women who are manipulating their suits to be ideal for warmer weather. Men too are swapping winter shoes for moccasins and ditching jackets for statement, lightweight shirts. As long as the suit fits well, has been tailored or made-to-measure, just about anyone can pull off the look, so if you’re interested in styling out the summer suit this season, why not book an appointment at Hemingway Tailors? We’d be more than happy to discuss your ideas with you or help ensure your new suit is the perfect fit.
