Got a summer wedding to attend? Don’t you even think about wearing that old navy suit you’ve been flogging for the past few years, you absolute monster. Here Personal Shopper Ian Charles Carter demonstrates a comfortable summer wedding style by ditching the tie in favour of a dress scarf, all the while keeping up the style stakes with a double breasted jacket.
Back in Black
Summer may be a time for going lighter, but dressing all black is cool 365 days of the year. Here Tanjim Finness shows you how you pull off the dark side without going full goth. Need more examples? There’s an endless list of icons that go full out noir, from Johnny Cash to Jim Morrison to…erm…Kylo Ren.

In stark contrast to the above, Personal Shopper Iggy Smitz goes all white. This is an ideal look for prom that gets a contemporary casual spin by wearing a t-shirt instead of a shirt and bowtie, which may or may not get you mistaken as a super posh waiter.
Hi-Top of the World
Converse…and a suit?! In theory it shouldn’t work, but Dylan James‘ execution is incredibly and effortlessly cool. Sports trainers also work well too, but keep them white and keep them clean. You’re already pushing boundaries with casual footwear, don’t cross the line with neon colours and scuffed toes.
Keep it Short
Tunde Ogunsina might look like he’s laughing because he got away with burning down Brighton’s West Pier, but we swear he didn’t do it and can give an alibi for his whereabouts that day. He’s laughing because he’s nailed summer tailoring with his combination of a statement printed shirt with a light short suit.
