Top Tips:

Do wear shorts
A short suit is the coolest way to wear the summer suit. Slip a white t-shirt underneath for an effortless summertime look.

Do wear sunglasses
It will (hopefully) be sunny this summer so sunglasses are a must. Mirrored wayfarer styles are the hottest shape to covet at the moment.

Do mix and match
The days of matching jackets and trousers are over. Try mixing different coloured separates for a more versatile and wearable look.

Don’t wear black
Save your smart black suits for Christmas parties, this season is all about lighter, fresher colours. But if you do have to go dark, make sure it’s navy rather than jet black.

Don’t wear smart lace up shoes
When the weather’s hot there’s nothing worse than having your feet tied up in shoes. The boat shoe or weave pump is a more practical and fashion forward option.

Don’t have scruffy hair
The key to recreating the model worthy look is ensuring that your hair is styled to perfection and any facial hair is immaculately groomed.
