As the dog days of summer approach, you most likely have noticed from Instagram that there is another season in full effect: wedding season. And as fun as these special occasions can be, let’s be real, it can also be stressful when trying to figure out what exactly to wear. Between black-tie to cocktail to casual, figuring out your suit might have you second guessing yourself. There is no need to sweat, as we are here to provide you with some tips on how to navigate wedding season and look your best (without stepping on the bride and groom’s toes). Here are a few things to keep in mind when getting ready for your next wedding.
Consider the Weather
With it being summer, we are not saying anything new when saying that it will be warm. Depending on the time of day, however, you might be able to get away with different materials. Of course, as we wrote before, it is hard to go wrong with a linen suit when the temperatures rise, so say you find yourself at an afternoon wedding, opt for the light material. But an evening wedding might allow you to opt for a cotton suit without having to worry about sweating and overheating.
Keep an Eye Out on the Dress Code
This will determine more of the style of your suit. As mentioned earlier, terms like black tie or cocktail attire may appear on your invitation, so keep an eye out for that. The last thing you want is to dress up or dress down too much depending on the situation. On the off chance that there is no dress code provided, it would be hard to go wrong with a neutral toned suit accompanied by a necktie and some simple leather shoes.
Opt for Lighter Colors
What makes summer such a fun season to dress for is the ability to transfer from darker hues to lighter ones to match the longer days. The same can be said for summer weddings, as the last thing you want is to throw on an incredibly dark suit and absorb all the sun’s rays on a hot day. Whether it be a light tan or blue suit, you can bask in the sun without feeling too warm and fit the bill of summer in style.
