Attending a wedding soon? You’re not alone—73% of weddings in the US take place between May and October. But unfortunately, it’s not as easy as just wearing your go-to “wedding suit.” Even if your friends aren’t the type to care, the dress code, venue, and weather are all key factors to keep in mind when picking out your ensemble. Here’s a look at some of the most common summer wedding dress codes and how you can stay stylish and comfortable for each one.

The black-tie wedding is a classic, but it’s one that can get a little tricky in the summer, particularly for a midday or outdoor wedding. The solution? Wear a dress shirt in a lightweight, breathable fabric. Trust us—it’ll make a world of difference when you’re sweating in a suit. And it’ll serve you well on the dance floor!

Having trouble with this one? We don’t blame you. If you asked fifty of your friends about semi-formal attire, you’d probably get fifty different suggestions. Instead of sorting through all that, just keep it simple. Explore suit separates instead of a full suit, and experiment more with colors and patterns. If you want to make sure you don’t look like you’re heading to the office, finish off your semi-formal look with a bright or patterned tie.

Don’t let this one stress you out. More often than not, the dress code for the outdoor garden wedding is no different from your standard semi-formal dress code. But depending on the venue, you might want to get in the spirit with floral, botanical, or earthy patterns. Worried about grass stains or mud? Swap out your ordinary slacks for a pair of machine washable dress pants to enjoy the outdoors in style and comfort.

If you’re lucky enough to live by the coast—or have adventurous friends—you might be attending a wedding on the water. That means it’s time to ditch the leather loafers and heavy slacks for something that won’t be ruined by a little sand and surf. If it’s a more casual beach wedding, get into the beachy spirit with a printed short-sleeved button-down.
