As much as we love the celebrations, finding the right summer wedding suits can be tricky. Balancing breathability and comfort with dress code appropriate style isn’t always easy in the summer months. The solution? Formal looks in lightweight fabrics.

Every year we’re seeing more and more, great options in lightweight fabrics that are perfect for summer wedding suits. Lighter wools, linen blends, and even cotton suits are a totally fair game (as long as your style is on point).

Let’s break down some top tier wedding looks that’ll keep you cool and comfy all day long; plus catch the eye of a bridesmaid or two.

A light tan suit, chambray shirt, and some bright summer accessories. The formula is simple. It’s summer, so feel free to break some of the old school style rules as long as your look has a consistent theme.

Instead of matching the belt to brown shoes, we’re feeling the blue here. A lighter blue belt compliments the darker chambray shirt perfectly. A crisp white pocket square and killer shades top off the suit with timeless class.

Summer wedding suits can be that easy.

Versatility = key.

Especially when it comes to hot summer days. The great thing about this outfit is that it goes from button-up ceremony to dance floor in 2 seconds flat.

Bold checks and double monk strap shoes are perfect to start the day off. Lose your blazer later on and enjoy the freedom of the polo underneath. Win win.

As much as we’re seeing many summer wedding suits head towards more casual dress codes, you’ll still encounter a more formal event from time to time.

Don’t worry — you can reserve your heavy black tux for fall. This lightweight cream option is actually cotton (though you could never tell by looking).

Great details like a single button jacket with peak lapels ensure you’re just as dapper as the guys sweating it out in their all season tuxes.

We love pairing a light blue shirt underneath for a bit of contrast that stays true to the summer vibe.

Yes, you can wear a t-shirt with your summer wedding suit. No, it can’t be a vintage band tee.

Here’s how to do it right:

  • Pick a classic suit in a blue or neutral tone, that’s not too boxy on the shoulders.
  • Style like you normally would — formal belt, dress shoes, watch, etc.
  • Now find a solid colour tee (this is essential) in a luxe fabric with some micro texture to it. A linen blend, premium cotton, or even a woven tee will do the trick.
  • Make sure your tee color contrasts from your suit. This is still a wedding — you’re not a club promoter. And on that note: please, no chain necklaces.
  • Tuck the tee in. Again… still a wedding.

Summer Suits

May 31, 2016

Summer suits are characterized by their lightweight fabrics or bold patterns and bright colours.

Seasonally speaking, this is your chance to break away from the dark winter tweeds, heavy wools, and flannels into something with a little more personality. We like to say that if you’re wearing a suit every day you need at least five in your wardrobe. This prevents your suits from literally, busting at the seams and other general wear and tear.

  1. Charcoal Grey
  2. Classic Solid Navy Suit
  3. Blue Pattern (Windowpane or Check)
  4. Lighter Weight Grey Solid Suit or Heavier Weight Darker Grey Charcoal
  5. Charcoal Grey Pattern (pinstripe or windowpane)

Once you’ve got those down, and summer suit season hits, you can add in at least one bright AF suit to assert your style dominance.

Disclaimer: If your summer suit is bold it has to fit properly.
No worries, when you shop with a Gotstyle Stylist, all full priced suits include basic alterations.

Here are some of our newest Summer Suits to keep you high style and low in heat.
