What to wear to a summer wedding

Dressing for a wedding can be difficult at the best of times, least of all in the summer when the sun is blazing down in all its glory and you’re at your fourth wedding in as many weeks. But watching loved ones vow to spend the rest of their lives together is a seriously good excuse to invest in a brand new outfit - especially one that’s guaranteed to turn heads.

Of course, there are a couple of rules to consider, and exactly what you wear is likely to vary from wedding to wedding, depending on the type of ceremony. But getting the suit right is essential, and alternating between different accessories is a great way to mix things up from nuptial to nuptial.

The Suit

It sounds simple, but it’s imperative that you’ve figured out the dress code before you make any kind of investment. It’s all too common for a guest to appear red-faced when he realises that a morning suit is required of him, that the wedding is actually black tie or that it’s a very casual ceremony and a blazer and chinos are all that’s requested.

Figure this out first, and then take your pick from our host of options, no matter where you’re heading. Maybe it’s a traditional charcoal morning jacket and coloured waistcoat with timeless striped trousers, a classic two-piece that differs from your traditional workwear or a slick and sharp dinner jacket and trousers. Take your pick - and then prepare to be the best dressed man in any room.

The Accessories

Mixing up your accessories is the perfect way to add a key point of difference to your outfit, especially if you’re attending multiple weddings over the summer. Owning (and rotating) a variation of different ties, pocket squares, cufflinks and shoes that you can easily pair with any suit (no matter what type) is a great means of continuously raising the bar.

From standout pocket squares in bright colours and bold patterns to sharpen up your suit, to ties with the ability to both blend in and stand out and shoes that work for every type of wedding, we’ve got everything you need for your most stylish wedding season yet.

The Materials

Investing in the right materials is imperative, which is why each of our suits guarantees the perfect blend of both style and function. We combine the perfect mix of sharp and strong tailoring with lightweight, summer-friendly fabrics such as linen and cotton to ensure that, from dusk until dawn, you’re keeping your cool and looking your best.
