1 Piece/3 Ways: Cream Cotton Suit

1 Piece/3 Ways: Cream Cotton Suit

Every Articles of Style suit is designed so that the components can also be worn as a separate jacket, trouser and vest.

We created the “1 piece/3 ways” series to give you some ideas on how you can style a timeless suit for different occasions; so you can get the most out of your garments and learn to build a sustainable wardrobe with style.

In this edition we show you three ways to wear our Cream Cotton Suit.

1. Wedding Season

A cream suit is nothing but elegant.

It has an old world Gatsby feel when you dress it all the way up - and that's what we love about it. 

Think about shirts in very pale pastel colors (like this mint stripe oxford) and ties with some summery texture (like this raw silk) that aren't overly business minded.

2. Business Casual

The best part about a cotton suit? The perfectly tailored chinos that you can wear with anything.

You can literally pair these trousers with any shirt, any jacket, any polo, any t-shirt, any lightweight sweater, etc.

These are about as versatile as it gets. We strongly recommend ordering a second pair.

3. Evening Out

Here's a super simple combo for a summer night out:

1. Cotton suit

2. Long sleeve polo shirt (tail tucked, collar not)

3. Suede loafers 

Boom. Enjoy the evening plyr.

Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,

Dan Trepanier
