The summer is kicking the door in and I know the need of elegant, yet cool, outfits grows bigger inside many of us.
What do you wear when it's too casual with shorts and too hot with a sport jacket?
Today I wore a lightweight wool suit with fabric from the italian house of Vitale Barberis Canonico. The suit has absolutely no inner lining materials, which makes it light and cool. Together with the soft shoulders it feels like wearing nothing. Wide lapels and high cuffs are the key notes of the suit, as it looks just as nice with what I am wearing now as with polished dress shoes.
I enjoy the casual and laid back look the polos create when combined with a suit or a sport jacket. I would choose a polo over a shirt any day of the week. Buy one if you don't have one already! Start with a navy blue or moss green if you're not sure about when to wear it or how.
What is special about this look is my choice of footwear. I believe that I have never displayed such casual footwear on the blog ever before. Even so I do not regret the purchase at all. I can wear them like this as well as with linen/cotton trousers, shorts or jeans. Shortly: I can wear it with anything. This is the "got to have" piece of today's post I would say and the price is also fairly low.
I'm sorry about the poor quality of the photo, I will post something similar later on with more shots of details and such.
Anyway... Look for links under the photo to see similar pieces and enjoy!
