Words by Eleni Papaioannou
Let the slim suit, the biggest trend of this past summer, follow you along the cold and gray months to come, through its lovely, warm incarnation.
Not everyone can pull off a slim suit. Gents, this is one trend that will not get you off the treadmill during the winter, as it is not at all forgiving to round shapes and bad postures. In other words, one can say that a nicely cut slim suit can guide you through the cold comforting months into your slim summer self, without letting you fall off track with your workouts. So, maybe it’s good for your health?
Kidding aside, choose your wool suit wisely as there is a very slim line between being chic and sending off folkloric vibes. It’s all about the details, and, especially this time around, about the texture!
CHOOSE A WARM, EARTHY COLOR AND STEER AWAY FROM TYPICAL BLACK SIMPLICITY
You can even pull off a nice, small check pattern that will please the eye.
·This winter, your suit has to have a singular texture, one that is as pleasing to the touch as it is to the feel, as you slip into it.
·In order to achieve this luxurious feel, bet on a good quality fabric. We know, we keep saying this but it is the most important factor when choosing a suit.
·Always check your blazer’s fit around the shoulders. If necessary, pinch it a bit at the tailor’s, so as to have the perfect cut.
·Respecting your suit’s simple cut, your coat needs to be a fairly short and rather straight one.
·Opt for a nice, soft roll neck sweater instead of a shirt, and you will have a gorgeous mix of sophistication with casual coolness.
·Very much of the season is the slightly short length of the trousers, offering ample room for shoe play.
