How to Make the Most of Your Suiting

How to make the most out of your suiting

A classic suit is a staple in any wardrobe and a wise investment that will last you for years to come. Whether you're looking for a versatile office look or a stylish addition to your everyday attire, a good suit is an essential item everyone should have in their wardrobe. Here are our tips for making the most of your suiting.

Start with a matching two-piece suit

A two-piece suit gives you an easy go-to look that doesn’t require much additional styling. (Simply add a top and shoes and go.) It also allows you to mix and match the top and bottoms to create a multitude of different outfits. When selecting your suit, consider a style that best suits your needs. A classic straight-leg pant and blazer combo is a great place to start, but you can also explore modern options such as a skirt and waistcoat.

Consider seasonality when shopping

With summer well underway, we've been loving the return of the 90s-inspired waistcoat. A waistcoat is a great alternative to wearing a blazer in the warmer months because it offers polish while keeping you cool. Pair it with matching trousers for a summer suit alternative, or dress it down by wearing back with denim

Wear it with your wardrobe essentials

The beauty of suiting separates is they can be easily paired with your wardrobe staples to take them out of the office. For example, a blazer can be paired with denim, a classic white tee and sandals for a casual weekend vibe, while suiting trousers can be dialled up with a dressier top and heels for evening events.

Experiment with non-black suits

While a black suit is a great timeless option, it's also worth considering other shades, such as brown or classic grey. Don't be afraid to mix and match your blazers and trousers either, as this can create new and interesting looks. For example, a grey blazer worn with black suiting trousers has a creative twist but is still refined.

Choose luxurious wool blends

Wool and wool blend suits may seem like an odd choice for summer, but this natural fibre actually offers exceptional breathability and absorbency, ensuring you stay cool and confident even on the hottest of days. Additionally, wool has the ability to resist wrinkles and maintain its shape, making it a practical option.

Embrace unexpected footwear

When it comes to choosing accessories to wear with your suit, shoe options like loafers or pumps come to mind. Consider pairing your suit with a stylish sandal or sleek sneaker instead for a modern twist. Not only will this add a touch of individuality to your look, but it’ll also offer comfort and versatility for all-day wear.
