Lighter colors come into their own in the strong light of summer, and I like lighter blues in particular when the weather is warm. A light blue odd jacket, like the one worn in the photo by the author Nick Foulkes, is one of my favorites for the season. Pair one with cream trousers.
Another seasonal use of blue is the royal blue of a linen suit, probably my favorite color for linen since cream is so difficult to keep clean that a man needs several of them so he can wear one. Not for the office but perfectly appropriate for strolling through the lobby of the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, or for City Saturdays in more ordinary circumstances.
Wear lighter blues in summer.
