The way we dress for important occasions, such as weddings or the workplace, has fundamentally changed. Where the go-to was once a two-piece with a fitted shirt, we suddenly find ourselves loosening our ties. Suits have essentially been split up to create more wearable, casual looks.
It’s unsurprising that brands have completely reconsidered their approach to suits for SS22. Wax London’s selection of easy-wearing two-pieces can be readily worn on the sofa as they can in an office or on the dance-floor. The materials used have a low-key appeal; summer invites a whole new world of texture and feeling that we don’t experience in the winter months.
Inspired by fifties bowling shirts and nineties forest raves, Wax London’s use of print and colour brings these classic sartorial styles into the present moment.
ALP Smart Trouser, Midnight Linen
Didcot Shirt, Monet
Few brands are able to tread the fine balance between cool and quirky quite like Wax London. Their playful prints are eye-catching but are not garish in any way. You can help prints stand out even more by opting for a dark, solid base for your trousers, blazer or shirt jacket.
Kurt Trouser, Dark Sand Cotton Twill
Fintry Blazer, Natural Linen
If you’re wearing a blazer or shirt jacket, keep it unbuttoned for an effortless, thrown-together feel. PSA: a plain long-sleeve is smart enough to wear with tailoring. Go a step further this summer by dressing down your favourite sartorial styles with sandals or trainers.
Dean Tee, Orange Trail Stripe
ALP Smart Trouser, Natural Linen
Consider the subtle mixture of fabrics. Above, the 100% organic cotton is ultra soft and smooth. It pairs beautifully with textured linen. Wax London’s linen pieces are made using European Flax—this guarantees traceability for premium linen fibre grown in Europe without artificial irrigation.
