Tailoring Q&A’s – Our advice on lighter coloured suits

Jason asked us…..

Does wearing a lighter suit make you appear more casual?

In general lighter suits do look more casual and certainly aren’t advisable for the boardroom, but while the sun is shining go forth and wear light.

  • In the Summer you can easily opt for wearing a lighter shade of suit. However, we would advise you go with mid-dark shades for a more formal look, especially with Autumn just around the corner.
  • Play it by personality. If you’ve got the character to pull it off then go for it.
  • It’s always a good idea to match your skin tone to the shades that most suits you. Olive skin tones can take on vibrancy and the warmer tones, if you are more fair skinned stay away from the harsh colours.
