In 2020, one of the biggest changes set to happen in men’s style will be the popularity of relaxed suits.
Having been seen all over the catwalks towards the end of 2019, this trend looks set to burst into the public conscious pretty soon, meaning that you need to learn how to style it right now.
To help, here’s our guide to wearing casual suits so that you can look good and feel great throughout 2020.
How to get started on the trend of the relaxed suit…
#1. Wear A Loose Fitted Suit
Thanks to the trend for relaxed suits, men’s tailoring as a whole has become less fitted, with many styles of suit now worn slightly baggier than they were previously. Embrace this movement and choose a lose fit for your suits throughout 2020 to ensure that you look great and feel comfortable.
#2. Get Creative With Fabric
Wearing a relaxed suit means that you can showcase your creative flair and wear something a little bit different. One great way to portray your unique sense of style is to choose a suit in an unusual fabric, such as linen, velvet or silk. You could also choose a bold colour or even a striking pattern. When going bright and bold, it’s important that you keep the rest of your look neutral so that the effect doesn’t become too muddled and confusing.
#3. Avoid Ties
Wearing a tie will make your outfit seem too formal, so avoid any type of tie. If you’re desperate to wear something around your neck, then try something classic like a suave neckerchief to dress up your look. If you want a quality piece, take a look at this Italian collection which are handmade with the finest silk. They offer something classic that will still make you look stylish yet casual.
#4. Use Accessories To Change Things Up
If you’ve invested a lot of money in your outfit but don’t want to wear the same look more than once, use accessories to make small changes that’ll make a big difference. Use items like bold statement jewellery, quirky hats and eye-catching bags to set yourself apart and stop people from scrutinising your actual outfit so that they don’t notice that you’ve worn the same one more than once.
#5. Suit Jackets Are Optional
As the name suggests, relaxed suits are less formal than traditional menswear, meaning that the rules are less strict. Therefore, you can forego the suit jacket if you’d prefer, and instead focus on pairing relaxed suit trousers with a creative shirt. You could also use your suit jacket as a coat, and wear it outside, then discard it when you go indoors.
#6. Wear Relaxed Shoes
As your suit is informal, your footwear should be too. If you wear smart shoes then they’ll look out of place with a relaxed suit, so try to keep your shoes in the same style as the rest of your outfit. Pair your relaxed suit with trainers or another style of casual footwear to keep your look cohesive.
When styling your relaxed suit, it’s important that you feel comfortable and confident, so follow these tips to find your perfect outfit and really make an impression this year.
