FLAT LAY

YOUR SUMMER RIVIERA LOOK

May 13, 2019

Since the 18th century, the French Riviera has been the getaway for a who's who of fashion's best-dressed, from movie stars to socialites. And with the Cannes Film Festival bringing the industry’s elite to the southern coast in their droves this week, you can expect to be inspired by a wealth of on-point, tailored warm-weather looks. So, if you’re heading out to a summer wedding, or you just want to smarten up your seasonal line-up, take a peek at the outfit below, steeped in Riviera vibes.

Pro tip: this summer, if you need to flex a suit for any occasion, a neutral palette is key. It look fresh AF, ranks at the top of this season’s key color schemes and also reflects heat — keeping you and your look, well, cool. In terms of shirting, a print helps break up the muted palette. While your classic Hawaiian number is great for that pool party, for more formal events, this stripped-back palm-tree design draws the eye nicely without going OTT.

No need for a tie in warmer weather, but if you did want to dial up your accessory game, go for some jewelry in the form of a classic necklace. Down below, some plain backless loafers will ensure any dress codes are suitably nailed with added breezy benefits. And finally, the hallmark of any warm-weather look: a good pair of sunnies. As the Riviera is famed for vintage-style vibes, pick up a pair in a classic shape like a round or hexagon frame to tap into the throwback mood. Now, which way to the cocktail bar?
