Cool Wedding Looks this Summer
Get ready for that summer wedding in supreme style with our top menswear wedding picks! From cool and classic to modern and must-have, never turn up in anything less than serious sophistication.
Dressing for a summer wedding can have its pitfalls, from choosing the correct cut to what shades of suit to pick. It can be a style minefield. To create a cool look for your next summer wedding, make sure you invest in a contemporary suit and don’t rent. Making this one time investment can see you through events and business meetings for years. Find a slim fit, single breasted style and match the width of your lapel to your tie for a contemporary feel.
Choose a fabric and colour that is suitable for the occasion, go for lighter hues like ash grey at River Island or biscuit and breathable fabric for weddings where it’s likely to be warm and make sure you’re weather appropriate.
For more traditional weddings or those in a country setting, opt for edgy checks and windowpane prints for a cool way to update your suiting style. Adding a waistcoat can instantly make your look feel more formal and is a great way to make sure you can handle warmer weather. Simply take off the jacket and your waistcoat means you still look smart. We can’t get enough of the windowpane check at Dunnes Stores.
When it comes to making a style statement at a summer wedding, do it with accessories. Change up your favourite suit with some well chosen pieces that rank high in the style stakes.
Make your look work for you with on-trend leather brogues or a classic monk strap shoe. The rule of thumb when choosing shoes to go with a suit is brown leather or burgundy with grey suits and black leather with navy suits for a sharp look.
Here at Bridgewater, we’re loving the slim and elegant knitted ties at DV8. This cool new style of tie feels modern and is anything but old school.
