Nothing stays popular for long in couture. But blue is proving to be the exception. Despite having become a mainstay of the catwalk for several years now, for spring/summer 2022, the men’s blue suit is more beautiful than ever.
Men’s Blue Suits for Spring/Summer ‘21
Navy men’s suits
No man should be without a navy suit. It is the epitome of masculine style, and a go-to for literally any occasion. With the navy Elroy you have an instant classic. Skinny fit, with stretch, it’s the optimum way of enhancing your silhouette without compromising your comfort. The shawl lapels on the jacket maximise the streamlined flow of the design, while the colour complements almost any skin tone. Navy is a colour that allows for creativity. Plain patterned or coloured shirts work well. Accessorise if you wish to. The only loose rule to remember is that you’re better off avoiding black shirt or shoes if you want your ensemble to shine.
The Gothenburg is a stunning Scandi-style slim fit suit in a glorious cornflower hue. And it is made from recycled materials. Simple and unaffected, this is a fantastic choice for the office and for after work. Wear with a Lavadino floral shirt and loafers to complete the look. No need for accessories here.
As we head towards the warmer weather, the linen suit becomes a wardrobe staple. And the Shades in light blue is the perfect example of its kind. Naturally breathable, linen has long been the go-to choice for summer, but the style hasn’t always been in keeping with high fashion. The skinny fit cut of the Shades suit combined with the fresh colourway bring the linen suit entirely up to date, opening the potential to a new generation of wearers, miles away from the original middled-aged market. Keep it formal, with a white shirt, tie and loafers. Or go relaxed with a white tee, open jacket and trainers. The choice is yours.
Floral and fabulous
Floral suits are no longer considered ‘out there’ when it comes to men’s fashion. Choose well, and it’s a look that can carry you anywhere – work, weddings, a night on the town. With our signature skinny fit cut, the Jackalope is sleek and sumptuous. But as with all floral suits, you have to be hot with your colour matching if you want to be noticed for all of the right reasons. So, play it safe with a plain white shirt, black brogues, and minimal accessories.
Check it out
The check suit is another look that isn’t going anywhere this season. But for spring and summer, ditch the darker tones and opt for a lighter blue, like the Shelby & Sons Waterside. This slim fit double-breasted number presents catch-all couture. Dress it up for a wedding or job interview. Dress it down for a dinner date. Keep your accessories simple and consider your colour matching carefully when selecting a shirt. Otherwise, it couldn’t be easier.
Perennially perfect, the blue suit has become a staple of the masculine wardrobe. Plain or patterned, it’s the ultimate go-to for the current season. And it is likely to stay on form for many seasons to come.
