One surefire way to level up your suit game this summer is by wearing a bold suit. Conservative greys and blues are great for your day-to-day workwear but in your free time you have the chance to be a little more adventurous. Not only will you be turning heads from every angle but you'll also ooze the confidence of a guy who knows what he's talking about when it comes to style. If the red flag is waving and you're thinking about all the things that could go wrong with a bold look, fear not! We've got some tips to show you how to stand out for all the right reasons in some of our boldest styles.

There's a time and a place for a bold suit, a summer event is one of them. This is where colour comes in to play and contrary to popular belief, blue and yellow can in fact work well together. The Tony suit is arguably one of our brightest and boldest styles which can alarm at first glance but by just simply taking off the waistcoat the suit can be toned down considerably. You'll still have the wow-factor but not too OTT for the occasion. Complete the look with a simple white grandad collar shirt and tan loafers and if you're a glasses wearer, ditch the contacts and wear your specs for a classic 1960s inspired look.

You're wearing a bold suit for a reason so you want to make sure it stays centre stage. This means no patterned shirts or colour clashing shoes. Choose a muted shirt to blend with the look and match to the colours within the suit. The Alvin suit looks super suave when paired with the pink Alfie shirt to compliment the check and topped off with burgundy loafers. Notice the lack of neckwear, a tie may act as a distraction and the button detailing on the Alfie shirt is too good to hide away. However depending on what the occasion calls for, switch up the shirt and add a wine tie and you've got a show stopping race day look.

We've said it before and we'll say it again; pastels are huge this season, particularly earthy tones giving all the tropical vibes. The Sid suit comes in leafy green, sky blue and sandy beige, perfectly bold and unique colours guaranteed to catch the eye. Now these are most likely not suit colours you're used to wearing but times have changed and the standard neutrals are not gonna cut it this season. Thankfully it's not too complex to pull off one of these bad boys off. As you know, white will go with absolutely everything and whether it's a pin collar, grandad collar or a simple t-shirt you'll look bang on trend.
