Summer is here and I couldn’t be happier. And you guys know me, I like to dress to the nines no matter what the occasion. A perfectly light and breezy, white suit for the summer is all you need. Whether you are sitting on a patio somewhere in the Entertainment district after work or going as a guest to an urban cool downtown wedding, a white suit is a must.
All white is already a statement so choose simplified accessories like a solid coloured tie or simple small patterned cotton shirt in a bright colour. A crisp white suit is always best styled in a preppy way, think nice summer sneakers, and classic button down patterns like small checkered or stripped shirt or off white linen shirts. Keep in mind that you can never, ever go wrong with a white or light blue shirt, this is the classiest shirt to pair with a white suit.
The trick here, with a white suit, is that you don’t want it to look too 80s Miami chic… Not that there is anything really that bad about that but you know, this is Toronto after all. Keep it modern with a slim tie and fresh kicks. A white suit should be well fitted, as always, and kept in the best shape with proper dry-cleaning. Keeping your suits in good order and maintained. Doing this will make your wardrobe last longer and clothes that might not have cost you that much will last for a long time.
