HOW TO GET MORE OUT OF YOUR WARDROBE: 3 WAYS TO MIX & MATCH YOUR SUITS
Utilize your wardrobe to it’s maximum
Just because it’s called a suit, it does not mean, that you cannot break things up like wearing blazers and suit pants separately. Doing so is actually one of our preferred ways to utilize our wardrobe to the maximum. So, this week we want to inspire you on how to get the most out of your suits. How to mix and mix them. How to think a bit out of the box stylingwise.
For that, we have chosen 4 of the most regular colored suits – light brown, navy, grey and black – which gave us three different mixed and matched looks that you easily can be inspired by.
1. NAVY AND LIGHT BROWN
A favorite color combination of ours. We took a navy blazer from Gant Rugger with the classic gold buttons and mixed it with a pair of light brown colored trousers from Sand Copenhagen. For us that combination is the concept of preppyness, which we love so deeply. Further more, we think this is a timeless styling with great references to the past (take us back to Ivy League), but a also semi-casual way to break things up.
We mixed it all with the Blue Floral tie, the White Striped tie bar and a pair of minimalistic Common Project sneakers.
2. LIGHT BROWN AND NAVY
To show the full potential of the two suits mentioned above, we did things upside down. And to mix the light brown Sand Copenhagen blazer with the navy Gant Rugger suit pants gave us a totally different look. For us, this look is both more summery but also a bit more formal. You could easily pull it of at a summer wedding for instance.
We mixed it with The Inevitable pt. 2 and a denim pocket square.
3. GREY AND BLACK
Let’s just be honest. Sometimes we think that wearing a full black suit becomes to much. A black suit should never be worn the “preppy” or formal way unless you are attending a wedding. So to get more out of the black suit, we recommend you to pair the black trousers with a grey suit jacket. The colors are in great contrast to each other, and you look well-dressed without looking to overdressed.
