Men’s Style Guide: The Summer Wedding Edition
It’s the season of nuptials, and let’s face it—you’re going to need something sharp to wear. Whether you’re celebrating the happy couple at the beach or heading to a more traditional ceremony, we’ve put together three key looks for a variety of occasions. Bonus: Each one features a few hacks that’ll make getting dressed (and staying comfortable) for any type of celebration easier than ever.
What to wear: Go classic with a twist. Start with a navy suit in a unique material. Leveling up your black-tie game is all about the details: the white shirt with a subtle print, the textured tie, a silk pocket square, the tie bar and lapel pin for some bling. It sounds like a lot of details, but these easy pieces will make you stand out (without totally upstaging the groom).
Tip: This one comes in our signature Core Temp fabric (temperature regulating, like wearable AC) that’ll keep you cool whether you’re the man of the hour, the officiant or a guest. Need a hem or a taper? Every one of our stores offers basic alterations to help you get that bespoke fit.
What to wear: Start with a Smart Weight Suit that’s paper thin (but still pretty damn durable). Designed with quick-drying fabric, it prevents you from looking and feeling drenched in sweat. Shirt-wise, a vintage-inspired polo is your go-to, giving off that cool-guy coastal appearance.
Tip: You can totally get away with wearing sandals—but the key is to style everything in a way that ties back to that easy, beachy vibe. Cuff your pants. Roll up your blazer sleeves. Anything to make you look (and feel) more relaxed. Plus, if the occasion allows, you can easily kick off your slides.
What to wear: Whether you’re heading to an at-home wedding or or a setting more like a winery, stick with these essentials. Start with a linen suit that gives you a bit of texture and ruggedness. Then, keep it simple with the details. A polo looks perfectly sharp for this kind of wedding, and loafers finish off the look with ease.
Tip: Linen is naturally breathable, so it’ll keep you looking and feeling cool from afternoon to evening.
