Monday Outlook: Separates

The suit is the epitome of men's styling, and if it's tailored correctly, will be the best a man will ever look in clothing. But like all things good, moderation is key, and wearing a suit too often will make it much less special than it should be; and this is where suit separates come to play.
Separates allow for some differentiation between the jacket and pants, with countless classic combinations and plenty of new pairings to discover this season. Color mixing is the first type of separates fun that comes to mind, but pattern, texture, and fabric mixing are also a major part of the combination equation.
Seeing that its beginning to warm up, the fabric choices should only go as heavy as a tropical wool, with everything lighter being prime for spring and summer. Fabric mixing is as easy as not wearing the same fabric up top that you're wearing on the bottom, meaning that all the fun comes with the patterns and colors. Plaids and florals are king this spring while stripes dominate summer, and all are conveniently pairable with solid pieces. Use the pattern on the pants to stay in tune with the loud-mouth bottoms trend and pair any solid sport coat that you already own for a stylish get-up!
