I have been banging on for a while about a look which I call 'Summer Tailoring' which is in essence, wearing your suit attire as you would normally but replacing the trousers with tailored shorts. It's a simple look but looks great and is very versatile.
Whether you are going to the races, a polo event, summer weddings or even out for an evening on holiday - this look is stylish, comfortable and different. This trend is very formal, however to give something extra to the look, incorporate prints and different fabrics such an linen.
The important aspects of this look are to pick a nice pair of tailored shorts, I prefer contrasting the colours between your shorts and blazer. Then a formal pair of comfortable shoes, my preference would be a worn in pair of brogues. For the more confident of us, go bold with a pair of colourful socks.
It looks like the designers at London Collections: Men have agreed and used this look in their SS16 collections. Above are from Richard James SS16 collection.
