Summer Trend: The White Suit & How To Pull It Off

A fresh trend this summer is the white suit, and GQ Magazine gives us a few tips in their latest issue on how to rock it right.

One of the first things that may come to mind is that your poor new white suit will be filthy by the end of the night. Hey, that’s ok:

“The idea is to dress it down, embrace the wrinkles, and let it get a bit dirty. When you treat it that way, you’ll be surprised how versatile it becomes: For drinks at the beach, team it with a tee.  For an alfresco dinner, ditch the pants and wear the jacket with jeans. Or pair the suit with a strong checked shirt for every summer wedding.”

The main key to pulling off a white suit, which stands for most trends, is wearing it effortlessly and with confidence!
