Dressing up in suit/blazer in India in summer is quite difficult because it is simply “too hot”.
So what to do, here is a piece, the classic linen blazer, which never ceases to impress on me. Linen as fabric is super light, more absorbent than cotton to perspiration and feels good on skin.
The classic beige linen is a sartorial pleasure every men should indulge in as the color is very soothing to the eye, it is calm and relaxing. The color beige has the warmth of the color brown and some of the crispness and freshness of the color white.
So, coming to the beige linen blazer and how to wear it.
A simple single breasted double button or double breasted 6 buttons blazer can be worn for formal wear in number of ways. First, pair the blazer with a crisp white shirt and a navy formal trousers to keep the sharpness for office wear. Now to go with a more stylish business wear, pair the blazer with darkest brown formal pant and light yellow or brown Bengal stripe shirt.
Coming to the casual or weekends look.
Pair the dandy blazer with a white trouser and a white linen shirt for a weekend trip to a beach or resort. The other way is to pair it with a chambray blue shirt and a smart pair of jeans.
Since this articles is mostly about the blazer, I’ll leave it here. Coming forth articles will be covered later on like how to pair rest of the outfit accessories like ties, squares and shoes. Stay tuned.
