Summer Wedding Style: What to wear

Thursday, September 5, 2019

Finding the right answer can be dependent on a few key issues – The Venue, the couple, the location and if the British summertime weather remains on your side. For those venturing abroad to ensure the summer sun then a more relaxed tone is often the favourite choice. But for those staying close to home may mean a traditional & formal setting.

Open Collar

Opting to go without a tie is an ideal choice for a less formal wedding event where a less strict dress code may be in place. To make this work without appearing like you have just left the office on a Friday evening, go for a suit with a printed pattern design that will take away the emphasis off the open collar style. A checked Prince of Wales design is the perfect pick for this option and is effortlessly completed with a crisp white shirt, leather belt and derby shoes.

Modern Navy

Navy and blue toned big and tall suits have seen a massive uplift in popularity in recent years and this surge seems to be holding strong. An elegant colour that allows for a light blue shirt or subtle stripes and matching navy tie for the full suit combination. Refine the look with accessories such as a matching tan leather shoe, belt & watch combination and bring along a pocket square of your choice for the complete contemporary style. The tan leather will add an extra touch to the look and bring the full outfit together.

Classic Black

This style will never let you down. A classic & traditional look that offers enough versatility for this suit to be reused for future events or to the office. A slim or skinny black tie will provide a modern look or add some definition & character by adding a tie with bright colours or stripes. Finish with polished oxford black shoes for a complete formal outfit and bring in a smart black leather belt to complete it.

Outdoor Casual

For many who break the norm of a traditional wedding venue, the summer is the perfect opportunity to explore barn weddings, beach ceremonies or garden marquees. These are ideal for bringing in colours, short sleeve shirts and chinos for a more toned down look for the occasion. With the warm summer sun you will be forgiven for opting to pair a shirt with a pair of stone chinos. Add a navy blazer for a sophisticated take on a classic smart casual look.
