Wedding season is upon us, and many guys will start debating if their winter suits are appropriate for such an occasion. The answer is no. A summer suit is a must when attending a wedding in warmer weather. The most classic option that works for any type of reception is a khaki suit. It’s a versatile option that can be casual or dressed up (just ask Ryan Reynolds or President Obama, both of whom are fans). Wherever your plans take you, here five ways to spruce up your summer look.
