Bold Suit, An Everyday Power Move

Has this brief bout of warmer weather put your style in an experimental mood? Is there a bold suit in your closet that you’ve bought, tried on and loved the idea of wearing — but, you’ve never taken the leap? 

It’s time to jump! We’re now in the era of anything goes. You can a minimalist or maximalist (or anything in between) while navigating the world like a boss. Today, we’ll focus on being a bold suit wearing semi-maximalist — two ways.

Let’s take the bull by the horns and identify what makes it easy to wear a full windowpane suit. It’s the charcoal gray base color that makes this suit work. Typically, gray base suits that are adorned with a windowpane or glen plaid pattern will stand out for all the right reasons.

Here are a few tips to pulling off this suited look without peacocking too hard. 

  • You can never go wrong with a crisp white shirt 
  • Select a windowpane color that is rich, but, not whimsical. Stick with blues, contrasting grays & burgundy
