For when the days around the big day call for great style too.


Words: C. Saramowicz


If you’ve been invited to a wedding abroad this year, your first thought is probably what to wear. A destination wedding is the perfect combination of holiday and celebration, meaning there’s plenty of opportunities to dress up and look the part. While some days will require a little less refinement, it’s a good idea to pack for all occasions so you’re both prepared and can make the most of your time away. Read on to see all the things you should put in your suitcase for the days ahead.

Rehearsal dinner

A day or two before the main event, the rehearsal dinner can be a bit more relaxed than the wedding itself (though always check in with the couple ahead of time in case there‘s a specific dress code). If you don’t have to wear a suit, it’s still worth looking smart while keeping the weather in mind. A Cuban collar shirt, for example, is a great option – our take has an open-knit construction and is crafted from 100% cotton, making it a lightweight and breathable summer option. Add on a pair of tailored trousers, preferably from linen or cotton, and finish with light, velvety loafers.

Days by the pool

It’s not all nuptials and night parties; some days will be spent simply kicking back and taking it all in. This is where a solid pair of swimwear comes in, but one that is versatile enough to be worn to lunch as well as by the pool. With a hidden zip and button fastening and side adjusters, our soft, peached swim shorts are smart, comfortable and designed to be worn all day long. With moisturewicking properties to dry you off in no time, throw on a linen shirt in a contrasting colour and a pair of loafers for an outfit worthy of the bar.

Walks through town

If you’ve decided to stay abroad for a bit longer, it’s worth packing something you can explore in. Whether you’re by a Spanish seaside town, a quiet Italian piazza or a bustling city centre, it’s worth wearing something that’s airy and roomy so you’re not sweltering and can move with ease. A crochet Cuban can be worn open or closed depending on the temperature, and its open structure ensures a free flow of air. As for your bottom half, invest in a pair of cotton linen blend trousers that give ample breathing room and are comfortable enough to walk around town in all day.

The wedding

It’s here – the wedding day has arrived. As it’ll probably be warm where you are, a linen suit is a given. You don’t have to go traditional with off-white or navy though – try and a copper tone in a wool-silk-linen blend that looks great against natural backdrops without being too loud. If it’s a more casual affair, lose the tie and pair the suit with a shirt crafted from a light cotton-linen blend. The muted stripes add a bit of a variety to the look – wear it open collared for an laid-back summer vibe.
