How To Wear A Suit And Casual Men’s T-Shirt With Suit Direct
Once upon a time, suits were only ever associated with formal occasions, but in the modern world, if styled correctly, they can be suitable for both smart and casual occasions. Banish the idea of your favourite suit held in reserve for a friends wedding; with summer approaching, opt for a casual looking with a blazer and trousers and a simple casual tee (printed or plain) or classic polo in favour of the typical button-down shirt. Suit Direct are masters in their craft and let them inspire you to achieve this look.
Suits and Polo Shirts
Polo shirts are an iconic item of clothing, originally worn by polo players in the 1800s, standing the test of time and securing themselves as a firm wardrobe favourite. This shirt style offers a high level of versatility, breathable fabric and can be combined with almost anything, including men’s suits.
Tone down your smart suit for the approaching summer with a polo shirt, adding loafers and a selection of subtle accessories for a really fresh look! Keep it simple when picking your colours, slate grey, classic navy or even a beautiful dusty pink tick all the boxes for almost any occasion – from a trip to the office, a day at the races or even that upcoming wedding! Just be sure to complement the look with a polo shirt bathed in white or perhaps a baby blue.
Suits and Tees
Pairing a suit with a tee was something of a fashion faux pas many years ago, yet in recent years it is considered a simplistic yet stylish look! Allowing you creative reign with colours and prints. Suave and clean cut is the order of the day, such as a smart suit from the Ted Baker collection, allowing you to pair any plain tee that captures your imagination.
If a grey suit is your go-to number, pick out softer tones such as white or baby pink for the colour of your tee. Black brogues or even white trainers will keep the look fresh; remember to colour match your accessories too! If you are considering a navy suit, pair this classic number with a taste of vivid colours like mustard yellows and berry reds; otherwise, a subtle baby blue will do.
Suits and Printed Shirts
Plain tees are an effective way to tone down a shirt, but if you are looking for something bolder, why not try a printed design instead? If you go down this road, you will have an almost endless choice at your fingertips. If you are looking for inspiration, take a look at Ben Sherman, who famously made printed shirts a staple in men’s wardrobes as far back as the 60s. Stripes, abstract designs or even your favourite logo t-shirt can be worn with your chosen suit if the colours and tones complement each other – it can be an easy and effective ensemble if paired correctly!
