Men’s Summer Wedding Style
Dressing for weddings can be a tricky business. You must at once live up to the dress code, look sharp enough to stand out and refrain from stealing the show. How to balance the sartorial conundrum? First things first: pick the appropriate suit for the occasion. After that, let the rest, well, follow suit. For an outdoor affair, you can’t go wrong with a light grey or blue colorway. Pair with a crisp, classic white button-up and let your accessories do the rest of the talking. A suede loafer strikes the right note – just between formal and casual – and is suited for terrain from rocky to sandy, depending on the nuptial locale.
If the invite says black tie, the need for a classic tuxedo, white dress shirt and bow tie is clear. However, if it’s of the optional or creative variety, feel free to add personal touches like a charming lapel pin or statement watch. Whatever the rules for your summer social schedule, think of outfitting oneself for such events as a welcome opportunity to invest in perennial pieces that will not only put you on the list of best-dressed guests, but will serve you for years to come.
