In spite of a snow flurry today, it’s time to start thinking about your spring/summer wardrobe! Up state in NY, I get asked a lot about outfits for the Saratoga Track Season…end of July and August.
One of my recommendations is a Linen & Wool suit from Vitale Barberis Canonico. This fabric looks like linen, but does not wrinkle as easily! Made with a 1/2 back, it is extremely light for the hottest days summer can throw at us during track season, or wedding or graduation days!
Moreover, this suit is a versatile workhorse! The jacket can be paired with a pair of cotton/lycra white pants for a dressy casual look, or over jeans!
Here, I detailed this suit with white bone buttons for spring/summer for the Northeast…through September 30. Then, I switch out the buttons to a great blue marbled bone button…perfect for the rest of the year…through April 1.
Now, the fun starts here…switch out the suit pants for a custom-made pair of white cotton/lycra pants…styled as slim flat fronts or 5-pocket jeans, and you’ve got a perfect dressy casual outfit. Add a pop of color with a custom casual shirt and you are ready for Saratoga or any other summer occasion…member-guest at your golf club, wedding, cocktail party, etc.
Dressy casual doesn’t get any better!
Finally, pair with your favorite jeans and this outfit just keeps on tickin!
