A cotton suit is a great option to have for the summer because the material is lighter and breathable. It doubles as office style and a wedding suit so can't really beat that type of versatility in menswear! I love the beige or light grey color options since it's subtle for the office and goes with my skin color better. I went with a striped knit tie and gingham pocket square for a little pattern mix combo. Extra tip: Unbutton the shirt sleeve for more air circulation to cool you off. The overall look is kept minimal, sharp and clean - exactly the blueprint for summer style.
I'm a big fan of suede shoes especially in the summertime and I'm excited to show off a few different summer suede shoes from Allen Edmonds in this series. AE has always been one of my favorite shoemakers since college. I remembered researching what dress shoes to get for the corporate world and AE was always mentioned in every article. I love the brand's long history, great styles and the type of quality that will last a lifetime. Funny enough my first pair is the Walnut brown Strands and now I'm rocking a summer suede edition of the shoes. The light grey is perfect to go with a light suit, jeans, or chinos. The shoes also feature vibram soles for added comfort to last all day walking.
