Summer color in tailored clothing and sportswear has always leaned toward lighter tones and softer palettes. Today’s summer shades are discreet and subtle with just enough touches of color to please the eye. You’ll notice an array of dusty neutral tones and silvery shades for the season and accents in dusty lavenders, melons, greens and blues.
While lightness is of course mandated by the season, it extends beyond the fabric and the color palette to the trimmer, lighter suit silhouette. This is evident by trends towards slightly shorter jackets in suitings and sport coats, slim trousers and a clean, classic shoulder line. Simple two-button jacket models and single pleat or flat front trousers complete the lightened look.
