Video Transcript: Suit Jacket and Shorts | Ma Belle Allure | DBS Menswear
Hello, I’m Simone Parker from Ma Belle Allure. My passion is to style women in the latest trends but to style those trends for your body. So I am extra excited to do a shoot for you on how to style your man. Most men have a suit in their wardrobe, whether they got it for a school formal, a wedding or a job interview, but for some men that is where it stays – in their wardrobe! So ladies with a few clever styling tricks you can ensure your man gets a lot of wear out of his suit, and both of you can step out in style!!!

When the weather warms up, don’t let your man pack his suit away. Get him to wear his suit jacket with a pair of dress shorts. The addition of the jacket can smarten up a casual summer look.

When creating this look, keep to no more than 3 colours. I’ve found that for most men, any more than three colours can make the look appear chaotic rather than stylish. You are trying to achieve a look that is both comfortable and elegant, so team your man’s navy suit jacket with a white t-shirt. I have chosen a v neck t-shirt from DBS Menswear in Wynnum for this look. Add a pair of dress shorts, ditch the long and loose style for something slim and fitted that finishes above the knee.

Next match the shoes and belt to either his jacket or shorts. For Alex I have chosen to accessorise this look with a casual leather slip-on shoe and matching belt which is perfect for less formal occasions. The colour teams with the tailored shorts.

I have sourced the tailored shorts, t-shirt and, footwear and belt from DBS Menswear in Wynnum. If you want to take your man shopping, this is the store to go to. Peter and his team have a wide range and provide fabulous service.
