Suit & Tie (and more)

24 Apr 2013

  • Mens’ fashion is not just about the suit and tie. JOYCE handpicked some essentials for your spring summer 2013 wardrobe, which would help you sail through day to night, from work to play.


    AT WORK

    In order to stay cool and chic during the hot and sticky summer days in the office, a crisp cotton shirt is a fail-safe staple. Try a pastel palette of lilac and light blue as an alternative to the standard white shirt. A navy blue linen blazer teamed with a pair of khaki trousers creates a tailored silhouette with comfort and ease.

    NIGHT OUT

    Botanical prints have always featured strongly in the spring and summer collections. Instead of the cliché choice of floral beach shorts, this season, designers have incorporated the beauty of nature into their jacquard blazers and smart shirts. Floral shirts can be paired with a classic black blazer or biker jacket, while the jacquard blazer matches well with a pair of tailored trousers. Both ensembles achieve a well-juxtaposed, smart and casual look for a fun night out.

    WEEKEND LEISURE

    Whether you are planning an action-packed weekend getaway or a “chillax staycation”, it is crucial to put on suitable clothing without compromising on style for all kinds of outdoor activities. A lightweight but durable windbreaker is the perfect outerwear to match with T-shirts and denim trousers. For extra comfort and quality, a pair of slouchy shorts in tuxedo crepe wool is the answer, which is the new definition of understated elegance.
