Lighten up with these men’s summer wardrobe essentials in weightless fabrics and uplifting shades

Summer suiting requires a more airy approach — linen shirts, crisp yet easy trousers and lighter tones will keep you cool even as temperatures rise. Most importantly, you’ll avoid looking slobby with shapes that are relaxed but refined. Look to local experts Working Style, Dadelszen and Workshop for sophisticated staples, as well as international Houses Saint Laurent and Burberry.
