Got a wedding to attend this summer? Groom or guest, there’s more to it than just the blazer and trousers. You’ve got to consider the colour, style and fabric as well as a shirt, tie and shoes, not forgetting what’ll work best for your personal style and the wedding theme. After some inspiration? Here’s our pick of the season’s suiting colours and how to wear them.
Neutral shades have been refreshed and refined for SS19. From white and beige to grey and stone, these colours featured heavily in the men’s shows in London, Paris, New York and Milan. These more organic tones work well on natural fabrics. Linen is a classic choice for a summer wedding as, thanks to its open weave, it helps to keep your body temperature down – from the ‘I dos’ to the dance floor. There are plenty of linen suits to choose from in lighter shades so you can keep your cool on the big day.
Navy blue has always been a classic choice for men’s wedding attire, but why not go for something different this summer? Bright blue is a great choice for adding some more personality to your summer occasion wardrobe. The vibrant lining and peak lapels on this French Connection jacket make it a standout piece. Team this suit with a crisp white shirt, floral tie and a pair of tan loafers or, if you’re going for a more formal look, a pair of brogues or Oxford shoes will ensure you are putting your best foot forward for the big day.
Pink isn’t the obvious choice for a wedding suit, but it makes for a real statement piece for your formal wardrobe. This Moss London jacket’s pink tone and slim fit create a sharp and bold look. The tweed cloth is woven in a classic herringbone style, adding a refined quality. Notch lapels keep it simple and easy to wear.
Another great way to integrate this season’s colour trends into your summer wedding outfit with a little less commitment is through your accessories. Show off your personality and make a statement with a tie and pocket square in a standout colour or a bold pattern.
