The pandemic and the home office have revolutionized our way of thinking about fashion and our dress code. The formal suits and white shirts wait their turn in the wardrobe while cotton chinos and leisure shirts have become our work uniforms. All this is fine, but what to do if you search for a more elegant and more unique style? We will discuss some ideas in this article.
Since we are in the summer period, let us focus on garderobe pieces that are suited for this season. Starting from trousers, we will review the jogger pants. To describe them briefly, jogger pants combine the characteristics of a tracksuit with more elegant suit’s trousers. That would explain their large success especially during pandemic time. This type of pants should be less adjusted, with a higher waist finished with elastic bands on the sides and braided cotton cord. If you choose the made-to-measure, you can order your trousers with or without the pleats on the waistline. The bottom of the legs can be simple or finished with small cuffs. As for the fabric, opt for light wool or moher which is more breathable. For a more casual look, check the linen and cotton blends proposed by Loro Piana or Holland & Sherry. Since we are in summer, it is better to focus on lighter colors like beige, sand, light khaki, light grey. This will make it easier to complement the outfit with more colorful tops and blazers.
Speaking of tops, linen and cotton would be the most recommended for your shirts. For more professional occasions choose a pure cotton that will give you a good wearing comfort. For everyday wear or holidays opt for linen that gives a nice cooling feeling especially when temperatures are high. Made-to-measure allows you to customize your shirt and you can choose between various models like cuban shirt or a polo one. The latter is particularly interesting because it combines the aspects of a regular shirt with a polo and goes well with jogger pants. If you need a blazer opt for a safari jacket, already discussed in one of our previous articles.
You don’t need much to complement this look. A nice linen cap would do the trick if you want to protect yourself from the sun. For a more elegant style choose a panama hat in natural color.
