When it comes to summer clothes, there are common doubts. You have the usual lightweight linen, or maybe the patterned madras fabric, and the clear white option for the sartorial daredevils among us. Enter Taika Waititi, who marked the releases of Thor: Love and Thunderwritten and directed by him, and Pixar’s Light year, for which he provided a voice, with his own Extreme Summer Suit. The stylish filmmaker is proving that you can wear classic suits in darker tones and still make them feel light, cool, and undeniably fresh for summer. It’s all about how you wear it.
Waititi’s summer of great clothes began last month in London when he arrived in the UK Light year debuted in some elegant couple tops from Giorgio Armani. A great two-piece jacket is inherently lavish, but he elevates it with clear-framed sunglasses and a gold chain that sparkles from beneath a white V-neck bodice.
Ten days later, Waititi was in Los Angeles for God of thunder debuted, wearing another bust, this time with a plaid pattern and designed by Louis Vuitton. He opted for a more formal button-down shirt but kept it from being too stiff with a striking beaded necklace.
Then, earlier this week, he went back to London for God of thunder Open and wear a blue Prada suit with black trim and a matching bow, completing the look with a polished Cartier emerald necklace. And let’s not overlook what is perhaps Waititi’s secret weapon: his neatly trimmed mustache and perfect beard.
The best way to wear a suit these days continues to be with a bit of a special edge, making it your own with little details of your choice — and the warm days of summer. Like the right time to let your monstrous flag fly. Pair it with some crisp sneakers, a classic knit polo, or maybe even your best designer clogs. You should also steal from Waititi’s textbooks and start combining classic suit styles with unexpected and idiosyncratic accessories. Whether that means some expert-level grooming, statement jewelry or great sunglasses – the choice is yours and your summer suit will better match that.
