The one event on everyone’s calendar at this time of year, is of course, the summer wedding. And the question that usually follows this is what to wear? First impressions count, whether you’re the groom, the best man or a guest and a moment as special as tying the knot deserves celebrating in exceptional style and looking (and feeling) your ultimate best!
At a time when summer weddings dictate dress codes as wide ranging as “English Countryside” to “Continental Glamour”, a sharp yet adaptable repertoire is the key to meeting any and all requirements and no matter what role you play on the big day, be sure to dress well.
Make your mark this wedding season by rocking a double-breasted blazer, using your accessories, tie and pocket square to add some flair to the traditional get up.
Here’s my three favourite looks for this years ‘wedding season’:
For those who pride themselves on their individuality, the detailing of a certain kind of suit is the perfect way to bring something new to the table.
This wool blend double-breasted blazer adds somer serious texture to the outfit and a simple design feature, such as the stand out pearl buttons, immediately enhances the overall look. Maintain its fun spirit with a textured tie, patterned pocket square and coordinated tie pin.
When it comes to footwear I’m a big fan of the double monk strap and it’s a shoe that always works well with double-breasted blazers and will produce numerous compliments!
Don’t be afraid to mix up a different blazer and suit trousers but be sure to let the blazer do the real talking and look for a more neutral pair of tailored trousers.

The one true sartorial staple for warm-weather dressing, linen is all about looking cool while staying cool. For those enunciating vows in hotter climes the linen suit is a requisite, not only for the lightweight fabric, but for its looser, less crisp appearance, which perfectly captures the fun mood of summer weddings.
I’m a big fan of this pink linen for this season and this is without a doubt the perfect outfit for those of you looking to really stand out this wedding season.
When it comes to shoes, I’d say the backless mule is well suited to weddings in warmer climates, where forgoing socks is more acceptable, but for a UK wedding simply pair with a black pair of classic Oxfords or for something a bit more vibrant a dark blue leather or suede loafer.
If you are attending a wedding abroad this summer, look no further than a linen get up to keep you looking smart and feeling cool throughout.

Every season, a suit comes along that stands out for all the right reasons. For this summer, the checked suit is a great option for those looking to look suave without being too flamboyant.
Impactful by design and colour, it’s a powerful player in statement-making suiting, but it’s the two-piece’s adaptability to work in both a super formal setting or as a rakish take on smart-casual that really makes it shine.
As sharp as it is sartorial, the check pattern gives it a certain boardroom-ready edge, but with the right choice of accessories it also holds sway as a sophisticated option for summer-wedding dressing. When it comes to colour, stay within the lines and look to warm, rustic colour options to complement a crisp white shirt and patterned tie.
Once again, a simple pair of double monk straps or leather brogues will add the perfect finishing touch to your look.
