What to Wear This Spring/Summer for that Special Occasion

Have a wedding? Have a pool or beach party? Have questions on what to wear for that special occasion? Most blogs only cater to women, so I thought this is a great opportunity to help Men find the perfect look for any occasion. Whether it’s a suit for a wedding, or a bathing suit for a beach event. Here are some fresh looks to keep in mind for upcoming events.


1: Wedding

Get a lightweight suit in tan or navy. Cotton or linen is best! You can always wear a black suit, but that can get hot during an outdoor wedding. For an outdoor summer wedding a white or tan suit works best. Combine the suit with a pastel colored shirt, to keep your look light and airy. You can wear any tie with this look, but just make sure if reflects your suit and shirt(if you shirt is blue, make sure it matches and or has a tint of the color blue in it). For your shoes and belt, a shade of brown works best with your tan or navy suit. With a white suit, you can always wear a black shoe and belt, but make sure you compliment that with a touch of black in your tie.

2: Party

Whether it’s an anniversary, christening, communion, graduation, or just a milestone birthday party; a dress pant or chino, shirt and or tie works. For the spring summer, any color or pattern works. You can wear a solid pant with a striped shirt, or you can wear a plaid or striped pant with a solid shirt. Be careful with pattern on pattern, too much of it can clash at times. For your shoes, either color works with whatever you are wearing.

3: Casual event

Get your shorts and polos out for a great summer party. If it’s a pool or beach party bring your bathing suit to change into. You can always wear a t-shirt instead of a polo, but make sure its a modern t-shirt, and not a boring plain one. Floral’s and patterns are big this season, so I usually like to incorporate that into my look. Patterned and plaid shorts with a solid polo or shirt works. Flip flops and Sperry’s (my favorite shoes), work to make your look relaxed and refreshed.
