Pinstripe Suit

Pinstripes suits do not have to look blasé. Style it with a print shirt such as checks or small polka dots. Add a print tie and pocket square for pizzazz. Take this look into evening, by simply changing out loafers or oxfords to a bold suede shoe or driver. Dark denim accentuates a pinstripe jacket for a trendy, put together evening look.

Green Suit

Light green, a great color for spring and summer, to dark green or plaids, this color makes a statement. A bold striped shirt makes the color pop with interesting contrast. Or opt for a white button down styled with a trendy snakeskin belt. Take it from office to evening, opening your collar and unbuttoning your jacket for a laid back style.

Light Gray Suit

Khaki Suit

A thick cobalt blue and white striped button down is another trendy option. Accessorize your look with watches, a trendy belt and pocket square for Divine Style.

Style Tips:

  • Denim easily transitions your suit to a trendy style. But all suit jackets can’t be worn as a sport coat with jeans. A suit jacket with proper fit close to the body and a fabric or color that is lighter in style or design easily transition to evening with denim.
  • Switch shoes to be more style savvy. Chuck taylors, leather or suede sneakers, monk straps, or drivers with an interesting texture, such as snakeskin, or color are fashionable options.
  • Unbutton your collar, 2 buttons for a more formal yet trendy option or go lower to 4 buttons for an eye catching look.
