Spring brings new beginnings, blooming flowers, and warmer weather. It’s a great time to switch up your wardrobe, especially here in the South. With the return of warmth and humidity, you’ll want to choose clothes that keep you comfortable yet professional. Here are some ways to look great in a suit in spring.
Linen is a natural, lightweight, breathable fabric that is perfect for the warmer temperatures of spring. In shades of navy, tan, and gray, linen suits move seamlessly into the workplace. These suits make a great choice for outdoor events like weddings or garden parties.
Some people worry about wrinkles in linen. Yes, linen does crease and wrinkle faster than wool. if you like the texture and breathability of linen but don’t want to look crumpled up after sitting, try out our fantastic wool-linen-silk blends for your next suit.
Seersucker suits are a Southern staple and a must-have for any spring (and summer!) wardrobe. The puckered texture of the fabric allows air to circulate, keeping you cool and comfortable. Seersucker suits come in a range of colors and patterns, from traditional blue and white stripes to bolder prints like gingham.
Dress them up with a tie or wear them casually with a simple button-down shirt. Seersucker keeps you cool at outdoor events, too. Don’t forget to wear your seersucker on Thursdays and on National Seersucker Day!
Cotton is another lightweight and breathable fabric that is perfect for warmer temperatures. Suits made from cotton are versatile and can be worn in a variety of settings, from the office to a casual lunch date.
Lightweight Wool Suits
While wool may not seem like the most obvious choice for a spring suit, lightweight wool suits are perfect for transitional weather. Wool is breathable and moisture-wicking, making all-season or three-season wool comfortable to wear even on warmer days. Most of our suit samples are comprised of all-season wool. We have a huge selection of colors and patterns from which to choose your next suit.
When it comes to styling your springtime suit, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Choose lighter colors and fabrics to keep you cool and comfortable. There’s a good reason pastel shirts are a popular choice when the weather warms up!
Consider adding a pop of color to your outfit, possibly with a colorful tie or pocket square. Bold socks add a touch of practical whimsy, too. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different patterns and textures, like a seersucker suit with a striped shirt or a linen suit with a polka dot tie.
If you’re selecting a new custom suit for warmer weather, don’t forget that we can customize the jacket to have a half-lining rather than a full lining.
Springtime in the South calls for lightweight, breathable suits that can keep you cool and comfortable in warmer weather. Linen, seersucker, cotton, and lightweight wool suits are all great options and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. With a few key styling tips in mind, you’ll be ready to rock your spring suit with confidence and style.
