We used to only wear suits when we had to. But things have changed. Thanks to the linen trend and our love of slouchy coordinates, suits are staples in our wardrobes, just like statement sneakers and barrettes. The style set’s love of menswear-inspired suiting is so strong that its members are passing on the ubiquitous T-shirt and denim shorts combo in favor of warm-weather suits. We encourage you to follow suit and work an all-business look into your summer rotation along with your breezy dresses and trendy almost-maxi skirts.

And suits can work for almost any occasion in almost any kind of weather. So yes, you can wear suits in summer without sweating through your blazer. These made-for-summer silhouettes come in many forms, from skirt suits to baggy sets.
