Suiting up for summer 2018 weddings

Suiting up for weddings in the summer can be really enjoyable for the stylish gentleman. Unlike weddings during colder seasons, which usually consist of customary dark wool suits, summer is a chance for you to have a little more fun with your suit and show off your personality.

Rather than trying to steal attention away from the bride or groom, you want to come across as well-dressed and look dapper – whilst at the same time being comfortable in your attire.

Anatomic & Co has put together a quick guide recommending outfits for weddings and other formal events in summer 2018.

 

Men’s summer suits tips

Suit Colour – Lighter fabrics will absorb less heat and feel lighter too
Shirt Colour – Keep it simple with a white shirt or mix it up with pastel colours like pink and light blue
Material – You don’t want to overheat in a thick suit so make sure it’s breathable and light
Shoe stylesLoafers and brogues partner well with the summer suit look

 

Men’s summer suit colours

Summer is the season where you can really have fun with your suit colours. There’s less dark navy and black and more bright colours and whites. Here are a few alternative suit colours that you can embrace for summer 2018…

White – While you don’t want to compete with the bride at a wedding (unless you’re the groom), white is an ideal suit colour during summer. And if you do decide to go with a white suit, make sure the rest of your outfit isn’t all white too.

Cream – If you’re not too keen on a pure white suit, you could always opt for a beige linen suit. Beige suits are also more practical than white, allowing you to bring in other shades like a pale pink shirt.

Light Grey – While grey is a popular option all year round, a couple shades lighter will really give you that summer feel. This suit colour can also be styled with a variety of shirt colours, giving you more options. You can opt for a classic white shirt and add a summery touch with a colourful tie.

Mid blue – Go wild, it’s summer! A mid blue suit is a great alternative to navy and will give you a fresh look. Team it with an open light blue shirt and light brown shoes and you won’t go unnoticed.

 

Men’s summer shoes

A summer outfit is not complete without a stylish pair of shoes. Brogues and loafers are your best bet for summer weddings.

Loafers:

Loafers offer a cooler option as they can be worn with or without socks. They also add more of a summer vibe to your outfit as they come in a range of colours. This being said, it’s usually best to stick to more neutral colours like brown, navy and black loafers as they combine well with most suits.

Brogues:

Brogues are another classic style that will enhance your summer outfit. The decorative broguing never goes out of style.

How to style denim for summer 2018

It’s hard not to love a standard pair of jeans − a versatile item of clothing utalised by all men with a good sense of style. And just because the heat levels are turned up in summer months, it doesn’t mean you have to forget about your favourite pair of jeans or other denim attire.

A common misconception is that denim is not a suitable material for warmer conditions − but if you know how to style it and what to wear it with, it can become an essential to many of your summer outfits.

In fact, here at Anatomic & Co we consider denim a key item to summer styling. So here’s a quick guide on how to rock your favourite pair of jeans and other denim items this summer…

Wearing jeans in the summer

When it comes to wearing jeans in the summer, you may want to avoid your skinnies to give yourself more room to breathe. And it just happens that loose fitted jeans are more on trend in summer 2018. Not only do they look cool, but also feel cool as they won’t be stuck to your legs.

Summer is also a good chance for you to embrace white jeans. Pair these with a breathable pair of loafers and you’ll nail the sophisticated summer look.

Utalise ripped denim

Ripped jeans offer great ventilation (it may sound odd, but it’s effective), just make sure you save these for the weekend and more casual outings. Ripped style jeans offer character. Pair these with a plain T-shirt and a good pair of trainers to pull off the ultimate cool look.

Demin shorts

Every man should own a few pairs of good denim shorts to see them through the summer. Styling jean shorts is easy. You can either dress them down with a pair of trainers and a T-shirt, or you can go for a smart casual look by pairing them with a short sleeve button up shirt and a pair of loafers or boat shoes.

What about the denim Jacket?

This is an unusual item of clothing – it keeps in the warmth when it’s cold and keeps in the cold when it’s warm. So if you’re looking for an extra layer in the summer, these jackets can be your go-to.

 

So just to recap; denim clothing doesn’t have to be tight or heavy. If you’re shopping around this summer, look for some light denim pieces that will add a stylish layer to your different outfits. Jeans should always be considered when dressing for summer − a pair of white jeans may even become your best friend.

Men’s style guide: what to wear to Wimbledon

So far Wimbledon 2018 has been a gem for tennis fans around the globe. The world-famous tennis tournament has already attracted a number of celebrities, including Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Gerard Pique, Natalie Dormer, Ellie Goulding and more.

And while the focus is of course, on the tennis itself, there is always an element of fashion to keep an eye on too.

If you’re lucky enough to be attending any of the remainder fixtures, or even if you’re just heading to a pub garden to watch the games – here are two stylish outfit options that won’t go unnoticed.

1) Look 1: The classic suit

WIMBLEDON STYLE GUIDE

A suit is the most classic option at Wimbledon as it automatically gives you that formal look. Yes, we know you may be thinking that this is a boring decision, but you don’t have to wear your standard work suit. You can go for something a bit more exciting, like pairing your suit with a knitted tie and a stand-out pair of shoes.

And make sure your suit isn’t too stuffy for the British summer sunshine. Try opting for a suit combo that is light or cut from cool linen-silk for added breathability.

Get the look:

  • suit (navy and cream is always a good option for summer)
  • knitted tie
  • waist coat (optional)
  • white shirt
  • linen pocket square
  • loafers or smart lace-ups

 

2) Look 2: Pairing seperates

WIMBLEDON STYLE GUIDE

Another option is to pair seperates – like a patterned blazer and a coloured pair of trousers. This is a popular choice amongst the stylish celebrities that take to the stands as it adds a touch of personality.

Don’t shy away from experimenting with designs and colours, but remember to keep the rest of your outfit pretty simple. If you want to keep it summery, pair your suit with a light coloured shirt and loafers.

You should also note that with this kind of look you match the right colours to avoid looking miss-matched.

Get the look:

  • blazer (beige, navy or patterned)
  • colour trousers
  • light shirt
  • a stand out tie (optional)
  • loafers

 

Shoes

If the weather pulls through, you don’t want your feet to be overheating all day. Loafers or drivers in either navy, tan or a brighter colour are your best bet. The great thing about slip-ons is that they can be worn with or without socks and still look smart.
