Frederick Thomas London Top Tips

Floral shirt

A textbook floral shirt doesn't usually muster up the best image, but don't jump to conclusions! A floral shirt can be stylish!

If you're going to be supporting a blossoming shirt, it's best to keep the rest of the suit simple and sophisticated. A pink floral shirt underneath a beige cotton suit is a perfect summer look. Pair with a block coloured neutral tie and simple accessories so not to clash. We wouldn't want anything to take away from your blossoming masterpiece!

Floral suit

Ignore the textbook floral shirt and tie - step it up a level and opt for a full on flowery suit!

Similar to a patterned suit but with more of a spring feel. Like with the shirt, it's a good idea to keep everything else as subtle as possible. So, a white shirt, no tie and light brown oxford brogues are a must. But if matching florals for both your jacket and trousers seems a bit much, you can opt for a single floral suit jacket instead!

Floral tie

It's time to bring things down a peg again, with some of our favourite blossoming accessories!

Frederick Thomas London - Bright Pink Floral and Paisley Tie The flower tie has to be a classic when it comes to florals, and for good reason! They can completely change the complexity and feel of your suit - bringing a boring navy suit back to life! Here at Frederick Thomas London we have a fab selection of floral ties - one of our specialties! Perfect for weddings, or simply adding a summer twist to your everyday office wear.

Floral pocket square

Why not truly embrace that botanic look and get a matching pocket square as well?! Go on...you know you want to!

Frederick Thomas London - Turquoise Rose Pocket Square For a more casual look we would suggest a plain white shirt and suit jacket. But instead of a floral tie, opt for a floral pocket square instead. Perfect for those warmer days when a tie is too much, but still enough to upgrade your suit to smart causal. Or if you're aiming for a smarter attire, a matching floral tie and pocket square set is the way to go - so suave!

Floral lapel pin

And last but not least - the blossoming lapel pin!

Frederick Thomas London - White Flower Lapel We love a lapel pin - so much that we've even written a blog about them! But we especially love floral lapel pins. Nothing finishes off a suit quite like a beautiful pin. A flower lapel is very versatile as well. They are perfect for last minute wedding accessories, because who really has time to forge for real flowers! Ideal for romantic dinner dates or great for finishing off your summer suit.

So, there you go! We hope our top tips will help you embrace that flower power this season! All the way from a full on blossoming suit to a more subtle flowery pocket square!
