Airy Suits To Stay Cool During Soaring Summer Temps

Whether your best friend decided to have a Hampton wedding or you’re hitting the red carpet, we’ve compiled a list of lightweight and breathable suits to ease the occasion.

Okay, fellas, I know the idea of a slim-fitted wool suit right now in these searing temperatures makes you want to run back into your air-conditioned apartment till the end of time. But fear not, because whether your best friend decided to have a Hampton wedding in the midst of an NYC heat wave or you’re boldly affirming your space on the red carpet, we’ve compiled a list of essentials to perfectly compliment your frame while still remaining lightweight and breathable. 

With certifiable luxe brands like Armani and Tom Ford including suits in their latest Spring/Summer Collections, I think it’s safe to say that including a linen or silk suit in your wardrobe is essential. A deal of respect and authority comes with obtaining a well-fitted and authentic suit. To the casual onlooker, a great suit communicates style and sophistication, but don’t allow yourself to feel limited during your selection. Whether its a precisely tailored black wool that conveys the message to your boss that you mean business or a pink linen for more free spirited creative endeavors, make it your own and choose wisely a suit that corresponds with the essence you seek to embody. 

Tips to stay cool in a suit: 

Linen is your best friend. Leave the Jacket Unbuttoned. Wear a Thin Dress Shirt.
