It’s officially (as of yesterday) summertime! The season of sun and fun is here and we’re ready to get dressed up for weddings, races and more. However, a full 3-piece suit can often be too much in the warm weather. This in mind, this #FashionFriday we’re looking at a great way to stay looking dapper whilst feeling cool in the summer heat, with some of our favourite waistcoats.
A well chosen waistcoat can be perfect for those events where you need to look smart, but can’t face wearing a jacket. They can be dressed up or down, with a short or long sleeved shirt, with plain colours or with patterns. Furthermore, these highly versatile items will take you right through to winter as you layer up in your classic 3-piece.
