Attending a wedding soon? You’re not alone—73% of weddings in the US take place between May and October. But unfortunately, it’s not as easy as just wearing your go-to “wedding suit.” Even if your friends aren’t the type to care, the dress code, venue, and weather are all key factors to keep in mind when picking out your ensemble. Here’s a look at some of the most common summer wedding dress codes and how you can stay stylish and comfortable for each one.
The formal wedding
The black-tie wedding is a classic, but it’s one that can get a little tricky in the summer, particularly for a midday or outdoor wedding. The solution? Wear a dress shirt in a lightweight, breathable fabric. Trust us—it’ll make a world of difference when you’re sweating in a suit. And it’ll serve you well on the dance floor!
The semi-formal wedding
Having trouble with this one? We don’t blame you. If you asked fifty of your friends about semi-formal attire, you’d probably get fifty different suggestions. Instead of sorting through all that, just keep it simple. Explore suit separates instead of a full suit, and experiment more with colors and patterns. If you want to make sure you don’t look like you’re heading to the office, finish off your semi-formal look with a bright or patterned tie.SHOP TIES
