Summer weddings are a great opportunity for stylish gentlemen to dress and impress. However, looking both fashionable and staying cool can be a tricky task. While a black suit and tie are always a go-to option, it may leave you feeling uncomfortably hot.
So what should you wear to a spring or summer wedding in 2019? Anatomic & Co has you covered, so that you look and feel your coolest.
What’s the wedding dress guide?
First things first, refer to the dress code that the bride and groom requested. You don’t want to turn up in a plain tux to a Game of Thrones themed wedding…
If there is no dress code, then consider the formality of the venue.
Choose breathable materials
Cotton or polyester items are ideal summer fabrics. As a bonus, they also look sleek and polished.
Cotton pieces allow more air circulation, which is great for ridding your body of excessive heat. One downside of the material is that it is moisture-absorbing, and can sometimes look damp.
Polyester on the other hand is moisture-wicking, meaning perspiration isn’t likely to show. However, since moisture cannot escape as easily, you won’t feel the same cooling effect that cotton gives you.
So the choice is yours – if you want to stay as cool as possible, then go with cotton. If you are going to sweat throughout the event, then polyester might work more in your favour.
Embrace brighter colours
A summer wedding usually calls for a suit and tie – with lighter colours like grey and beige being popular options. The great thing about summer is that you have the option to embrace more colour.
Pastel coloured dress shirts work nicely for summer weddings – again we recommend something lightweight and breathable. Never underestimate the difference the colour and texture a dress shirt can make.
Summer dress shoes
There are a number of dress shoes men can adopt for a summer wedding, that partner perfectly with a variety of outfits.
The great thing about the loafer is that it provides a cool summer look that can work with both casual and formal apparel. This makes it one of the most versatile shoes in the summer wardrobe.
These shoes will add interest and excitement to your summer outfits, thanks to their unique perforations. Whether you’re dressing for a smart casual wedding or semi-formal one, brogues can perfectly complete your look.
For a more laid-back wedding, boat shoes are quintessentially preppy. They also come in all kinds of colours, adding life to any outfit.
