Your Ultimate Style Guide For Special Occasions This Summer

During the summer months, families often have various special occasions to attend such as communions, confirmations, and weddings. In this blog post, we present a comprehensive guide on appropriate attire and dressing tips for these significant events. 

Wedding Guest Outfit - How to stay cool

Summer presents an excellent opportunity to experiment with lighter fabrics and more vibrant colours. With the start of the wedding season upon us, it may be the right time to invest in a summer suit, such as a beige linen suit, which can be styled in multiple ways to suit different occasions. This Louis Copeland beige suit, is an ideal option for a wedding guest outfit. The suit is made of gorgeous virgin wool, silk and linen blend from Loro Piana. The breathable fabric makes this an ideal summer suit and the blend of fibres will increase it's crease resistance. Given its versatility, beige offers a wide range of options to experiment with different shirts and ties that can be paired with the suit in playful and creative ways. Styling the suit with a pink shirt and a pink floral tie, which is a few shades darker than the shirt, can be an option to add a pop of colour.

Casualwear for warm weather occasions

For special occasions like confirmations or communions, a less formal style may be more appropriate, in this case, a blazer and chinos can serve as an excellent alternative to a suit. An outfit similar to this one selected by Jamie at our Dundrum store, will allow you to maintain a sharp and stylish appearance, whilst still feeling comfortable when attending your special event. 

Blazer, Chinos and Loafers

If you're attending a laid-back occasion like a birthday BBQ, it's best to opt for a more relaxed attire. Wearing a casual shirt or polo along with chinos or shorts will guarantee that you appear stylish. For footwear to match with these more casual outfits you can choose a pair of classic white sneakers. It's essential to have a timeless pair of sneakers in your wardrobe. Incorporating a pair of sneakers into your wardrobe can be beneficial not just for casual outfits, but also, to add a touch of informality to your appearance when worn with a blazer and formal trousers.  This FEDELI Knitted Shirt worn with chinos and a pair of sneakers will work well if the day is a bit cooler.

Mens Casual Shirt

When the weather is warm and you require a casual ensemble for your event, a linen shirt can be a comfortable and breathable option. Additionally, a polo shirt can also be an excellent choice to stay cool. Either of these alternatives can be paired with chino shorts to create a polished look.
