While some men will wear any old thing to the beach, it’s important to look stylish when you go from catching waves to catching happy hour. Totally confused by how to do this? Beach, please!
Keep it simple by building off a swimsuit that looks more like regular summer shorts, then create light layering with a tank top to sport around the beach, and a fun printed cotton shirt that's perfect for mingling at an outdoor bar. Rocking a button-down like this one from Saturdays in a dark blue color helps to hide sweat marks with a cool distracting pattern that’s a great alternative to the Hawaiian shirt if that’s not your thing.
Lastly, flip-flops in a bar are a big no-no, so try out these cool smoking slippers from Soludos that cover your toes and feature a dope embroidered wave.

No man wants to wear a suit in the summer — the thought alone can cause any dude to break a sweat!
Thankfully, there’s lightweight suiting options to keep your cool, like this one from Etro that’s extra comfy with stretch. It's a bit pricey for some, but brands like Bonobos make great-quality suiting for a reasonable price if that's more your speed. There’s always that point in the wedding where you’re going to take your snazzy blazer off and you don’t want your shirt underneath to look ill-fitting. Custom shirts from Proper Cloth will have you looking svelte like James Bond, thanks to the ability to customize your shirt — including the collar size, sleeve length, and general fit — all for an affordable price.
Accessorizing with brown-leather goods like these Allen Edmonds woven penny loafers adds an accent of texture, while a Miansai leather-cord bracelet pairs perfectly with your watch for a modern touch to your classic suiting.
