Whether you want to look professional in the workplace, suave at the clubs, or a combination of both, a suit is a staple of any man’s wardrobe. And, while some suits are very multi-purpose and can be worn seemingly anywhere, it’s best to have a variety to choose from – too many is better than too few!
If you’re wanting tips on what to look for in a new suit this year or advice on how to wear your current suits in the most up-to-date, trendy way, this guide is for you. Read on to discover how you can dress to really impress when donning the most fashionable male outfit this year.
Dress It Down
A trend that’s been building up momentum for a while now and is going to be huge this year is the dressed-down suit. This approach to the suit is all about portraying a casual, laidback persona without sacrificing the professional air that a traditional suit conveys. There are numerous ways to do this, as explored in the next point, but a great place to start is by investing in a more alternative looking suit jacket to replace the stiffer and less approachable office blazer. A great way to get some inspiration for dressing down while suiting up is to explore the range of suit jackets available from fashion experts like Politix.
Lose the Tie… Or Even the Collar
The most popular method of dressing down the suit in 2015 is set to be losing the tie. While a tie is often a fashionable accessory, sometimes an unburdened buttoned shirt can portray your professional-yet-relaxed attitude just as easily – with the added benefit of not restricting your neck so much. While having one or two buttons undone is the more common way to complete this look, the alternative geek-chic method of buttoning all the way up is rapidly rising in popularity. Either way, your shirt needs to be stylish yet office-appropriate; check out these shirts as examples of ones that would look great under a blazer without a tie.
To really add that casual element to your suit this year, consider pairing the jacket with a t-shirt instead of the typical office shirt. This style is taking off now, particularly in younger, more relaxed workplaces. Just keep in mind that this style falls apart if the jacket comes off, so never walk sans-blazer into an important meeting! Plain tees are usually the best for this combination, but feel free to try other options too.
Colour It Up
Sure, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic black or stylish grey suit. But it’s somewhat more exciting – and more satisfying – when you get it right with a bolder choice. Take a risk on a dynamic colour, whether it’s in your jacket, pants, tie, or shirt. Make sure you keep the majority of your outfit plain and simply coloured so that your more colourful item is accentuated though. Suit fashion in 2015 is all about daring choices.
Now that you’re aware of the major suit trends coming in 2015, you’ll be able to either hit the shops for some new fashionable threads or confidently modify the way you wear your existing outfits.
