Your summer event guide

 

This summer is set to be a cracker. But with a dizzying amount of events going on and invites flying left, right and centre, knowing what to wear to said event can be a troublesome process. So to help out, we’ve pulled together a foolproof guide. Consider this your hot-weather handbook…

Wimbledon

Wimbledon is as much an opportunity for people-watching as it is watching tennis itself, so the pressure for what to wear can be high. We recommend summery smart-casual: a great shirt, stone chinos, summery loafers, and the almost obligatory shades. Leave all-white to the pros and go for neutral colours. This is not the place for peacocking – who knows who you might run into?

Work do

Is it just us or as soon as summer hits, does your calendar go haywire? Work drinks, functions, lunches and the like mean it can be hard to get any actual work done. What’s more, sometimes choosing something that'll work from desk to do is more hard work than the event itself. We recommend a great, short-sleeved shirt in a print or subtle pastel shade. Team it with summery suit trousers, chinos or, if your office dress code so allows, tailored chino shorts. Minimalist trainers are helpful if running to and from venues and so is a leather backpack.

Polo

It comes as no surprise that a quintessentially English event calls for a preppy outfit. Try a blazer, a short-sleeved shirt, and slim, tailored shorts. A polo shirt is another obvious choice – but steer clear of white jeans and a white polo unless you want to be mistaken for a player. Keep colours neutral and summery and natural fibres will be more breathable which is a definite winner. Boat shoes look great here – smart but still carefree and breezy.
