Lighten up for spring with jackets and trousers in stone, cream and off-white shades. Pale neutral tailoring was big news at the Menswear SS16 Collections, with cotton suits, pale suedes and lightweight linen.


Pale neutral tailoring is on trend dressed down − wear neutral tailored trousers with laid-back casual separates such as a plain t-shirt or printed shirt with a hoodie or denim jacket.

To style the pale neutral tailoring trend for a formal occasion such as a wedding, a sophisticated cream suit looks great worn with a crisp white shirt and contrasting tie – mauve and dark blue work well.


Less austere than traditional black, navy or charcoal suits, a light coloured suit is both dapper and desirable.
