3 Ways To Wear A Khaki Cotton Suit

_MG_9405

This khaki cotton suit is one of my go-to options for the spring and summer seasons. It’s one of those suits that can easily be dressed up or dressed down. However, due to it’s light construction, it tends to get wrinkled within a few minutes of wearing it, so it’s definitely more of a casual option.

Fortunately, that just makes the transition from the office to happy hour that much easier!

This is the perfect example of an outfit that I would wear to work if I had something fun planned for later in the day like a date or a happy hour.

In my opinion, not wearing a tie and a pair of no-show socks makes it even more casual.

T-Shirt & Sneakers

The best part about having a cotton khaki suit in your wardrobe is that it makes getting dressed that much easier.

You can even pair it with a t-shirt and some slip-on sneakers and still look great without putting in a lot of effort.

Cotton & Linen

When most people think of linen, they think of the wrinkly textured fabric that our grandparents used to wear to the family barbecue.

However, this linen sweatshirt adds a whole new perspective to linen. It’s the ideal piece for those cool spring/summer evenings when the temperature starts to drop and by pairing it with a khaki cotton suit immediately gives it a pop of color.
