Let’s face it, summer is here. For some people, it’s time to break out the crop tops and daisy dukes. Others, such as Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Dakota Johnson, Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski, prefer keeping things sharp in season-appropriate suiting.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to tailoring for the warmer months, from figure-hugging skirts and matching jackets to louche velvets set to wear with a shirt and tie for more formal occasions.
Below, see how the It-girls are wearing suits this summer.
1. The femme fatale skirt suit
Opt for a skin-tight midi skirt suit that hugs the body in all the right places. Whether you choose joy-inducing Self Portrait gingham or vintage designer creations – like Kendall Jenner’s Givenchy autumn/winter 2007 haute couture set – make sure it delivers an hourglass silhouette.
2. The sheer suit
Naked dresses are all the rage this year, thanks, in part, to the Met Gala red carpet. But have you considered the naked suit as another option? The sheer set, which can be dressed up or down according to the occasion, strikes the ideal mix between sensual and sophisticated. See Gigi Hadid’s Dion Lee birthday look for reference.
3. The knitted set
Knitwear sets for the summer? Absolutely. But ensure they are breezy and lightweight, as well as navel-baring, for good measure. Make like EmRata and wear yours with #NormCore trainers for an optimum pared-back aesthetic.
4. Le Smoking suits
Thanks to Yves Saint Laurent in 1966, the Le Smoking tuxedo suit is a wardrobe mainstay for any stylish woman today. For a masculine twist, wear yours with a crisp white shirt and tie, like Dakota.
5. The safari suit
The safari suit combines femininity and functionality in the most ideal way. In order to emphasize your form, get a linen version that is suitable for summer holidays and make sure it’s cinched at the waist, like Hailey’s.
