How To Wear A Khaki Suit - Part 1

The hottest suit this season is khaki. It can be dressed up for formal events or worn with an open-necked shirt for a more casual twist. Whether you want your suit to see you through hot dinner dates, work functions, holidays, casual lunches or weddings; there is plenty of versatility available. 



Most men tend to wear suits in black, navy or pinstripe to work; but these days you can look sharp in something much more alluring. Team your khaki suit with a pale turquoise or light green shirt (blue and green are immensely hot this season) and a patterned tie (ideally in polka dot or a floral). You can add a pocket square for extra sophistication points, ideally opting for something in the same pattern as the tie. Finish the whole outfit off with a smart pair of chocolate brown brogues. To really embrace this season's look you need to wear your shoes without socks, but this decision depends entirely on how seriously you take fashion. Complete the look with a tie pin to add an extra touch of style, gold is the jewellery shade this summer and so style points will be added if you go for a tie pin in gold.

For an edgy urban dressed-down look, team your khaki suit with a plain white tee and stream-lined hoody in a strong colour with your trainers. You can still wear a pocket square, for an interesting clash of influences. Why not wear a cashmere flat cap too, to finish off the look.

Summer wedding

Khaki suits are ideal for summer weddings. Wear yours with a crisp white collarless shirt that is open at the neck. Add a light-weight silk scarf, a brown or khaki belt and matching brown brogues. Finish the look with a pocket square that matches your scarf or shirt and a panama hat.

Date Night

The khaki suit can look immensely sexy. Wear yours with a tailored black shirt and cufflinks. Keep the suit open and wear a pocket square. Cashmere socks are a good choice if you are hoping to take things further, they keep feet fresh even on the most balmy nights and feel luxurious soft.
