How To Accessorize A Summer Plaid Blazer

Check Out This Fresh Take On Accessorizing A Summer Blazer

How To Accessorize a Blue Plaid Blazer

Camel Knit Skinny Tie

Take your Summer Style Strategy to the next level with a designer plaid patterned summer blazer. Accessorizing a patterned, lightweight blazer can be dumbfounding if you are in the habit of only wearing ties and bow ties with business suits.  No worries, we have you covered.

We have hand-picked some of our favorite casual summer chic accessories to pair with a summer plaid blazer.  For a casual look, we like to mix patterns and love this Midnight Blue Self Tie Bow Tie paired with color coordinated plaids.  For the most casual, yet polished look, opt to accessorize soley with a color trimmed pocket square.    And if you’re feeling daring, pick out a secondary or tertiary color in the blazer and find an accessory that matches that.  In this case, we picked the burnt camel and picked out a skinny knit tie that handsomely coordinates with the color palette. Accessories should never be exclusive to business wear and  instead, should be shared with all your menswear pieces.  Sharing is caring.

Nuts For Nautical Fashion in Menswear

Look Ultra Smart in Nautical  Inspired Fashion Ensembles

 

How To Create A Nautical Look

 

Creating a polished nautical look can easily be done with the proper palette, the right cottons and the perfect menswear accessories.  First +  foremost, create a palette of all navy blues and whites and from there, start to think about your accessories.   For accessories, you can go with a linen pocket square,  a textured polka dot skinny tie or perhaps an anchor tie. It all depends on you.

 

Designer Linen Pocket Square Nautical  Skinny Nautical Anchor Tie

 

We carry a broad assortment of navy blue menswear accessories that can pair impressively well with your nautical blazers whether they are blue linen, white cotton or gingham checkered.  The key to great nautical fashion is looking clean, posh and well accessorized in head to toe Navy and White.

Mix your menswear patterns and separate your summer suiting. For example, a navy blue suit blazer can look revived and casual by being paired with white jeans or chinos.  Pair your gingham neckties with your color trimmed pocket squares.  Sky’s the limit and the seas are open, when it comes to creating great nautical inspired fashion ensembles.

One Suit And Five Looks

Take One Suit and Give It Limitless Possibilities With Accessories

How To Dress Up A Navy Suit

Strategize your fashion purchases by investing in a few quality made suits and a wide array of accessories.  We have taken one handsome and well tailored  Navy Pinstripe Suit  from Suit Supply and given it five different looks with five different accessories to illustrate the unmeasurable power of accessorizing.

For the essential Power Look, pair a suit with a proper burgundy tie. It exudes a Men’s Club Sense of Tradition.

For the Casual Blazer Look, pair a suit blazer with a patterned pocket square and jeans. Skip the tie.

For the Trend Setter Look, pair a navy blue suit with a plaid patterned bow tie.  Trendsetters always mix and match their patterns.

For the Academic Look, pair a navy suit with a Regimental Tie.  We like the brightness of this Yellow Regimental Tie.

For the Monochromatic Look, team a navy pinstripe suit with a navy striped tie.

With a good suit, your pairing options can be endless in creating unique aesthetics. Instead of buying multiple suits, invest in two or three great suits and lots of accessories.
