Summer weddings are occasions meant to celebrate life, love, and friendships. They’re also the perfect excuse to dance your ass off and showcase your style.
However, that’s nearly impossible if you’re sweating bullets in your go-to, year-round suit. That’s not to say all formal attire will ruin your good time. There are plenty of breathable fabrics and rich textures to keep you looking and feeling cool.
“Summer weddings should be an opportunity to showcase your personality and enjoy the weather—not dread it,” says New York-based stylist Paul Fredrick. “You just need to pick the right jacket and go from there.”
Common breathable fabrics include chambray, cotton, and seersucker, but you can find summer-friendly wool, too. With so many options, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Lucky for you, we’ve taken the guesswork out of finding the right rig to match any style. Scroll down to find yours.
