Don’t let the summer heat keep you from being one of the most stylish wedding guests. Here we run down some of our favorite summer looks and styles — for him. (See yesterday’s post for her.)

For Him:

There’s nothing like a sharp-dressed man on the dance floor. Be the guest everyone wants to meet with these sleek wedding wear picks.

Newport Houndstooth Navy Suit (see featured photo)

With linen and silk mixed into the texture, this suit gets a thumbs-up for summertime shindigs. The other great part about this look? The pale blue shade helps you to fit in at a variety of weddings—whether a posh garden party or a chic beach affair—making it an outfit you’ll be able to wear again and again. $699.

Engineered Garments Khaki Andover Jacket

Unusual pocket placement makes this piece a conversation-starter. The khaki color and lightweight material make it a summer wedding must-have. Add a colorful tie to bring it to life. $310, Tabor, 421 Providence Road, 980-207-4860

Ole Mason Jar Plaid Sport Coat

The words “Southern gentleman” come to mind. Pair this patterned blazer with matching navy slacks, or try it with khakis for a more relaxed look. Either way, you’re bound to look sharp. $650, Ole Mason Jar, 148 Brevard Court, 980-202-2173

Alfani Suede Tassel Loafers

Bring texture to your ensemble with these hip suede navy loafers—they’re great for adding color to a neutral suit or for playing up the monochromatic look. $99.

Thom Browne Striped Shirt

Challenge the wedding guest status quo with this intriguing, unexpected button-down. The abstract design oozes insider coolness, and white’s always good for a hot summer night. $430, Tabor, 421 Providence Road, 980-207-4860
