When it comes to menswear, it’s all about keeping your cool, especially as we brace ourselves for warmer weather. Summer 2015 is all about the linen suit, with cool blue and bold red detailing – and wearing it well is much easier than you think.

Whilst a lot of women think dressing well is much easier for guys, it’s not always the case. With so many cuts, colours and trends on offer, it’s hard to navigate your way to a simple men’s wardrobe that works as hard as you do.

Summer 2015 seems to have simplified this task by focusing on one elegant must-have: the linen suit.

Not sure how to build a look around a linen suit? Here’s our 3-step guide to building a summer wardrobe that’s no match for your busy lifestyle:

  • Well Suited

A sleek linen suit is an absolute must this season. Worn with sneakers, or brown wingtips for a casual look, this cool twist on a well-known classic the best way to own the room. When it comes to picking and trying on any suit, take your time – and never underestimate the value of a good tailor.

  • Button Down a Look

Some days just call for a formal shirt with a collar that means business. You can’t go wrong with a few go-to colour options – navy or light blue for date nights and white for well, anything from work to play.

  • Style: Check!

While we’re talking shirts, now is the time to add some colour. This season’s check shirts are bolder than ever, with cool blues and feisty reds demanding to be noticed. Add a few check shirts to your look and you’ll never find yourself wondering what to wear again.

  • Tie down a look

Ties are not going anywhere. In fact, they’re still big news in men’s style circles. Make sure you tie the knot properly and just above the top button of your shirt. Stick to simple, strong knots that won’t come apart within an hour. Practice makes perfect!
