Round 2 of the Summer Suede Style brings us to this Sharp Casual look. This sharp casual ensemble is perfect for the Summer Fridays and casual meetings around the city. The lightweight blazer and suit pants is a go-to smart casual combination for the summer. Suit-separate pieces are great to break them apart and wear it casually this way. The navy blue jacket and beige/white pants are staples that always work well together. Opt for a nice fitted polo to dress it up a bit instead of a regular t-shirt. Feel free to tuck it in or leave it out depending on the occasion. Complete the look with a pair of sophisticated suede loafers. The Allen Edmonds Sea Island is a well-crafted essential pair of shoes for the summer. Just slip it right on and you are good to go! No need to fuss about socks and let the ankles breathe. I love the rich colors and texture of the shoes and how it stands out in the season. Definitely one to pick up and add to the summer rotation of white sneakers and boat shoes. I took this outfit a spin around Long Island City and grabbed some much-needed iced coffee along the way!
Stay tuned for Part III in the Summer Suede Series. Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below!
