Now that we’ve officially entered winter, it’s time to get a three piece suit. Though not a winter staple per se, December festivities give you a chance to dress up in your best, and a well tailored three piece suit delivers.
What is a three piece suit?
A three piece suit is composed of three pieces – the suit jacket, matching trousers and a waistcoat. The waistcoat can either match the rest of your suit, or be in a striking contrast to it. There are a few things to keep in mind though. The last button on your waistcoat should be left undone. Your waistcoat should cover your trouser belt line, without going too far below it. And finally, don’t pair a three piece suit with a belt.
How to wear three piece suits
Three piece suits are usually perceived as formal, but that doesn’t mean they have to be stuffy and boring. Fashion lovers regularly add playful elements like bold suit patterns, colored shirts, bold ties, etc to adapt it to semi formal occasions. But if you’re new to three piece suit territory, then we suggest you start safe and explore with fun styling as you get more comfortable in it.
