With the temperature dropping, it’s time to move your linen suits and make room for something warmer. It’s very important to choose the right fabric, styles and layering techniques to ensure you’re dressed right for every occasion. Before you make the next visit to your tailor, here’s a guide to help you pick correctly.
The Right Fabric
During the winter months lean towards heavier fabrics like wool, tweed, flannel or herringbone. It keeps you warm and maintains suit structure exceptionally well. A woollen suit is uber versatile and varies in stiffness and breathability, as you require. It can adapt to temperature changes and has a slight shine.
Tweed is heavier than wool but has a timeless finish, it’s easy to pair and the distinctive patterns make it a great statement. Flannel and herringbone suits are best for extremely cold climate. They’re most structured and gives you a matured and bold look.
The Right Colour
Everyone needs those all-season suit staples in black, navy and charcoal, however, play around with darker tones in the winter. Colours like oxblood, emerald, cognac and plum are the most elegant tones for the season. These hues command attention when you walk into a room, maintaining the formal essence of a suit. Each colour is unique and gives you an edge.
Winter is the best opportunity to play around with textures and colours. Either opt for accessories in dark tones which complements your suit or choose something totally opposite like a bright patterned pocket square and tie. Another statement accessory is a slim knitted tie – goes extremely well with your winter suits.
Layer it Up
While Dubai winter does not allow much layering, it’s a great time to experiment a bit with textures and opt for an eccentric textured vest or a basic toned overcoat that will keep you relaxed and warm when you’re out.
