Earlier this week, I headed to the Rosewood for a spring fashion show hosted by Capitol File Magazine and Saks Fifth Avenue. That meant it was time to rock a great springtime suit. It was an ideal spring day so I knew I could not get away with the darker looks from this winter.

The Rosewood is famous for its exquisite roof top deck and has great patio seating and was the perfect venue for this show. As one of the few men at the event, I knew I had to rock an amazing springtime suit to sit among the well healed beautifully put together women.

I love a blue suit. I have several in different shades. It’s a color that I wear throughout every season. For spring, I like a bright blue color. My suit is in between a navy and royal blue. It’s a nice vibrant color for this time of year with a nice bold white pinstripe. The suit is a slimmer cut for a nice modern look. I’d like to say it was to show off my slimmer physique but that’s still a work in progress.

To keep with a springtime suit looking perfect for the season, it was all about the details. Pops of color and a light colored tie help to showcase the spirit of the season. My off white paisley tie had bright green accents so I chose a bright green pocket square to accentuate the tie. If I wear a pocket square, I typically do not wear a lapel flower but sometimes I throw caution to the wind and just go for it. In this case the white lapel flower was a nice added touch.

Also notice the shoes. What’s great about a blue suit is you can get away with black, brown or even cordovan shoes. There are a variety of options. I feel that my brown shoes keep the springtime theme going. As for the fashion show, it was great to see what women will be wearing for the season. It was even better to know that my springtime suit look will make me the perfect escort (arm candy)! Did I bring my A game? I’d love your thoughts and comments.
