Summer Wedding Style Guide
Are you invited to a summer wedding and are not sure what to wear? Here are 4 tips to have you looking and feeling your coolest during the hottest months of the year.
1. Refer to the invitation
Your first step should be to see if the bride and groom have requested a specific dress code. Knowing the dress code is a great way to start thinking about what you want to wear. If there is no dress code given then consider the formality of the venue. Showing off your unique style is a good thing, but you want to make sure you do not draw attention away from the bride and groom.
2. Stick to light fabrics
The summer is a great time to invest in some lightweight custom suits and dress shirts. Not only will you look great, but the lightweight fabrics will help keep you cool throughout the entire event.
3. Wear Summer Colors
A summer wedding is the perfect opportunity to wear a pastel-colored tie. Don’t be afraid to wear a light blue, pink or lavender shirt. Of course, if it’s black tie or formal attire, you’ll have to resort to white, but never underestimate the difference that custom dress shirt and tie in pastel colors can make.
4. Have fun with your dress socks
So you may have found the perfect outfit to wear to a summer wedding, but there is still one more element that can elevate your outfit just a bit more. Fun dress socks! Socks with stripes, polka dots, palm trees, and even pizza on them are more than acceptable. Don’t be afraid to show your personality with your choice in socks!
