Suit Up

In Feature, Style

The summer suit is this season’s go-to for casual-cool.

 

Forget the pickup lines and forgo flowers—the best way to snag a date this season is to dress like a gentleman. And what better way to look the part than with a crisp, summer-appropriate suit? Choosing colors that are warm and sunny will ensure your look leans more casually elegant than formidably formal, while a bold play on pattern nearly guarantees any fearless fashionisto the attention he deserves.

Checks, Please

If you’re feeling extra confident, go for red‰ÛÓand look very on-trend. For something a bit more subtle, soft yellows are also a shoo-in for late summer.
