A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of checking out the Summer suit collection from Topman. A visit to the top floor of the Oxford Street store in Personal Shopping experience was in the diary and when the day arrived, my stylist Nam was excellent in providing me with advice and options on my summer style. It was certainly refreshing to have some influence from a stylish Parisian with a vision of an outfit that was very different to mine.
After a number of hours perusing the store floor from the comfort of a well-upholstered sofa, I settled on this Light Blue Textured Slim Flit Suit. Forget the flat, dull tones of winter suits; with the sun higher in the sky and the days providing more light, it’s time to experiment with texture (or so he told me).
I always look for something a little different when I acquire new items and the fabric on this suit certainly sets it apart. It’s not quite linen and so still keeps its slim fit shape very well, but the fabric is light and allows for plenty of movement. The off-blue colour makes it perfect for the transition into summer and, when paired with a splash of bold colour in the pocket and round the waist, it provides a versatile canvas on which to stamp your style. Under the suit, this Rounder Collar Shirt keeps things simple while giving a nod to my European stylist on the day. Overall, the minimalist look keeps things effortless while giving you the option to experiment with the smaller details.
You can check out the Topman suit collection here, but I’d certainly recommend a trip to the Personal Shopping experience if you really want to refresh or push your style.
