Summer is approaching (finally!) and I have been looking out for lightweight skinny fit suits with unique textures. Linen suit has always been my top choice in the Spring/Summer until recently when I came across with this gorgeous woven seersucker suit from River Island. They have just arrived in perfect time as I have a couple of weddings to attend in a couple of months! What I love about the seersucker fabric in comparison with linen is the smoother touch but still remains the wrinkled and puckered appearance which works so well with summer. It is the new modern essential in my opinion, everyone should own a seersucker suit.

I love this new suiting collection from River Island as the fitting is unbelievably well if not perfect, well it is close to perfection for a ready-made suit. I compared it with my made to measure suit and the result is not far-off! Not many brands able to achieve this and they actually carry the jackets in 3 different sleeves length of the same chest size in short, regular and long. I am wearing Size 34 in short, and it fits me like a glove! The same applies to the trousers! This is a wow-factor for me as you are only paying for the ready-made price but in return you are getting very well fitted suit. Unless you are a model, otherwise you will understand the struggle when it comes to buying ready-made suiting! To make it slightly more interesting, I have also gone for the double breasted jacket as it looks more suave and opulent.

You can easily dress it up with a button up shirt and a tie like I do, or simply pair it with a white T-shirt for smart casual. Most importantly, you need to have fun with the styling! It’s a summer wedding after all. I have added a pocket square and a tie in stone colour with navy polka dots to go with the suit. I love the earthy tone of the accessories to make it more fun and yet relevant. If you are someone who loves bright colours, I would suggest you to accessorise the suit with bolder colours such as red, green or even burnt orange. These stone suede loafers with tassels from River Island are great for the summer too with a pair of no-show socks.

You can see the wrinkled/puckered texture from the close up image above. And the thin striped fabric also gives it an understated charm as supposed to plain navy suit. I have also chosen a penny collar shirt for this very special occasion because I find it less corporate especially with a tie.
