The sun is finally out and the suit you've been throwing on all winter to work, and the odd wedding, is getting too hot to stick on everyday. There is nothing worse than joining the thick-wool sweat brigade on the tube who believe that one tailored masterpiece is going to see you through every season. We walk you through the plethora of summer-ready suits in the stores now.
If a summer suit immediately screams seersucker, or lazily creased linens in powder blues only, you will be pleasantly surprised. New developments in linen fibres and lighter wools means you can stay cool in dark colours and classic cuts. Of course, adding a bit of a lighter touch to your wardrobe is no bad thing and while you might want to keep the colours muted in the office, you can break out a baby blue, dove grey or ivory at the next wedding or party and soak in suited glory.
Summer suit jackets also make for a really easy way to give your usual look a bit of a refresh, particularlyin lighter colours that contrast well with dark denim or chinos and also look fantastic with shorts (if it really gets that hot).
Check out the best summer suits out now to suit every budget and style.
