One of the biggest trends on the Spring/Summer 2020 runways was suiting. And while the idea of suiting is appealing (who doesn't want to dress up and flex every now and then?), throwing one into your regular rotation can be challenging when your go-to is streetwear.

But the idea of the traditional men's suit has come a long way. Take Fendi, for example. For Spring 2020, Silvia Venturini Fendi took her interest in gardening and imagined it as a collection complete with clipping baskets, watering cans, utility vests, and floral prints, to name a few. It also included suiting that looked polished yet effortless and very street-ready.

To show you how to pull off summer suiting, we teamed up with Fendi to translate runway suiting to the streets. Check out our guide below.

It's All in the Accessories

Luxury brands have undoubtedly intersected with streetwear, but let's get specific. One of the best takes on this is juxtaposing traditional menswear pieces with casual ones. For example, when it comes to translating runway suits to the streets this summer, turn to streetwear accessories to do the job. Cross-body bags, even ultra-luxe ones like Fendi's (shown above), ground a blazer-and-trousers combo. Bucket hats, jewelry, and sports-inspired sunglasses are reliable options, too.

The Unexpected Suit

Think a suit needs to be a formal blazer, button-down, and trouser pairing? Think again. For Spring 2020, Fendi showed a horticulture-inspired collection, complete with a color palette and prints fit for the chicest garden party – or for the streets. Peep the 'fit above that features a blazer in an original, eye-catching print, relaxed-fit cargos, and sneakers – streetwear staples. And yet, the overall look still reads as summer suiting but with unexpected twists. The key to pulling this off is keeping the fit tailored and polished, even if you're rocking cargos.

The Unconventional Suit

One of the things we love about Fendi is its bold point of view. The two looks featured above are just a few examples of how the summer suit can not only be reimagined but adopted by the streets. Styling cues, like a long shirt and sneakers, give the overall look a more sporty vibe. Alternatively, color-blocked trousers and leather sandals evoke, say, strolling the streets of Rome rather than heading to the boardroom. The takeaway here is styling the suit in nontraditional ways to express your personal style.
