I realize linen suits are not for everyone — but it can be great to have one in your closet for those days where you need to look polished and professional, but it’s sweltering outside. (I also just did a mini-update to some of our favorite linen blazers out there right now; see the widget at the bottom.)
This light peach pinstriped one from Brooks Brothers caught my eye — I like the relaxed vibe, and I always think peachy pink is a surprisingly versatile color for suits — wear it with white, navy, black, gray, as well as more fun colors like reds and oranges.
To discuss: the untucked shirt! What are your thoughts, readers? It strikes me as a casual touch to the outfit, which is OK if that’s what you’re going for. I suppose my rules for untucked blouses for work in 2021 would be 1) banded tops shouldn’t be tucked, 2) fitted t-shirts or sweaters almost never need to be tucked, 3) fitted blouses can be left untucked but note that it’s more casual. I’d say unfitted, billowy blouses and tops should almost always be tucked. Readers, what are your thoughts?
(Looking for something more affordable and/or in plus sizes? This linen-cotton blend suit at J.Crew Factory comes in pink, sizes 00-24, and is about half what the Brooks Brothers suit is.)
