Oliver Brown linen jacket   There's no better way to stay smart in the summer heat than in perennially stylish linen tailoring. You can relax into this easy-to-wear fabric whatever the event without compromising on style, as our linen suits include the hallmarks of great tailoring - think working cuffs and pick-stitch detailing as standard. However, it does require a little thinking. Here are three ways to wear linen this for a little summer inspiration.   1) Wearing linen at weddings For weddings in sunnier climes or more casual mid-summer nuptials in the UK, linen suits are just the ticket. The general rule is: the more formal the event, the darker your linen suit, so take your cue from the dress code. However, you can't go wrong with a beautifully tailored navy linen suit paired with the crispest of white shirts. Add a touch of colour with a silk tie and pocket square that complements your jacket, and you're all set.   pink silk tie by Oliver Brownnavy linen suit by Oliver Brownsilk handkerchiefs       2) Wearing linen at a casual event At casual summer events, the rules are of course a little more relaxed. A linen suit is the perfect option if you wish to retain a little elegance but feel free to experiment with your favourite colours. A safe option, though, is the neutral stone-coloured suit, worn with a linen shirt and brown suede loafers.   Oliver Brown suede loaferscream linen suitOliver Brown blue linen shirt       3) Wearing linen as separates  For everyday summer wear or informal evenings, a linen jacket is so versatile. When wearing smart cotton jeans or chinos, our un-lined linen jacket is perfect for completing the look over a smart cotton shirt. Why not try the vibrant fuchsia pink for a splash of colour?
