Lounge suit is a vintage term that just went out of use. However you will still find this term on wedding invites, formal events and other occasion invites etc. Lounge basically refers to a casual look but keep in mind that this is a casual suit look so the suit aspects of it still remain.While this may not be a strict bow tie look it is very much a proper suit look. The only reason it is called lounge is because in the older days, formal suits were fancier with lets say a tail to the blazer or a frock look, in comparison to which, this was a casual style.
Here are the top looks for styling the Lounge Suits
Now one important factor here is that the trousers and jacket should match, in color as well as fabric. They go hand in hand like any other suit. You do have the option of both three piece as well as two piece suit. Both fall under the category of lounge suits
