COLOUR VISION

With the darkness of winter finally behind us, now’s the time to give your wardrobe a healthy injection of uplifting summer shades. Taking inspiration from the debonair dressers of Havana, menswear editor Ian Wright shows you how to work the season’s key colours

 

SHADES TO SUIT

This season, tailoring is just as important out of the
office as in. Get the most out of your off-duty wardrobe
by revitalising versatile, lightweight suits with strong
colour combinations

 

WHITE HOT
An untucked, loosely
buttoned white shirt
and Panama hat lend a
classic summer suit
laid-back appeal

MR SAND MAN
Team a navy shirt with a lightweight suit in desert colours for a darkly seductive look; sneakers add a casual flair

A HINT OF PINK
Make a strong statement by using bright accessories to set off a classic blue suit

BOLDLY GO

Casual classics get a summery makeover in uplifting
sunny shades. Think striking colour clashes,
complementary tonal looks and touches of texture. Just
add your favourite sunnies

BLOCK PARTY
Contrasting block colour works best with textured
pieces – a slub-finish shirt and waffle-knit sweater
add instant impact

MELLOW YELLOW
How to brighten your day? Inject neutral tones with a revitalising burst of sunny yellow

TWILIGHT ZONE
A woven collar and warm sunset hues elevate this classic Birdseye polo shirt to new style heights

COOL, CALM, COLLECTED

Bright, bold looks aren’t for everyone. Take it down
a notch and make a subtle statement with softer
summer shades

 

TRUE BLUE
Understated tone-on-tone blues feel fresh for summer;
a waistcoat makes for an offbeat layering piece
