THE EDIT

EVERYDAY SUITS

January 28, 2015

We're going to dispel a myth. Whoever thinks a day suit cannot also be worn in the evening is greatly mistaken. On the contrary, the latest trend breaks all the rules. A tailored suit can be worn by day in the office, and by night, at dinner with friends or on a romantic date with your partner. 

How can you transform you look from day to night? Simple! The secret is in the accessories. By day, wear minimalist shoes and accessories in nappa leather or suede: brown and blue are the colours to wear this season. Meanwhile, for evening, raise the bar with sophisticated materials and shapes. By not having to change your suit, precious time will be saved with guaranteed success. We've broken down the guidelines for tailored suits. Perfect for a meeting wit colleagues and an after work trip to the cinema, we recommend the most simple of suits: a single breasted jacket with peaked lapels and slim fit trousers, by Boglioli or Dsquared2. 

 

Tailored suits for day and night. 

Brunello Cucinell's presents a triumph of materials, suitable for a more formal event after 6pm: dark silk micro checks decorate luxurious blue wool. For a private art viewing after work, try Brioni's tailored suit, which evokes the feeling of a tuxedo, to be played down with a turtleneck or sweater rather than a shirt. Dell'Oglio meanwhile proposes a formal suit jacket, to be worn with a plain shirt. If you are feeling more daring, try a suit in a lighter tone, such as Dolce & Gabbana's Prince of Wales checked version, to be paired with a tie or a black t-shirt.
