It is said that a well tailored suit to a woman is what lingerie is to a man. That said why would you not have a few in your wardrobe to choose from? This tan double breasted suit from Next fits the bill, and makes a change to the standard black and navy.
I originally saw this suit at one of the Next press events, when press people and bloggers like myself get a preview of items for the forthcoming season. I loved it then but had to wait until it was available before I bought it.
If I wanted a modern casual look, I could have styled this suit with a plain T-shirt or a roll neck sweater and some white trainers. But for this post I decided to go full on classic.
With a classic white cotton shirt and an orange patterned tie I maintained the colour palette and chose orange socks to add some colour and interest, and some tan loafers.
The beige felt fedora hat adds another dimension of style, and elevates the look to something much more sartorial. It affords a slightly vintage feel and conjours thoughts of the 1940’s, an era of impeccable style.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this ‘what I wore today’ style post. What do you think of this suit? Are you a fan of the double breasted jacket? How would you have worn it?
Whatever your thoughts I’d love to hear from you so feel free to leave me a comment below.
