1. Simple But Smart Beach Wedding Attire For Men

Beach Wedding Attire For Men

For a laid back but still stylish beach wedding attire for men, combine a pair of tailored (as opposed to more casual draw string) white linen pants, a crisp tailored shirt (striped will look very nice or else something like the white shirt featured in the picture above with the blue and purple checkered and paisley cuff and collar details). A tailored shirt hugs the body nicely and looks smarter than a regular fit.

Complete the look with a white webbed belt and some sandals, white espadrilles or color coded deck shoes (like the blue Lacoste ones in the picture above).

Wear the shirt with the collar open and the sleeves rolled up. Finish the look with a white fedora hat or a panama hat.

2. Classic but Casual

If getting married barefoot and in your baggies is not your idea of a wedding look, but you also don't want to be overdressed, then perhaps something relaxed, but still classic would work well for you.

Try a simple pair of black linen pants with a tailored shirt in white or in your wedding colors. Choose a French cuff shirt with which you can wear some funky cufflinks like the barefoot cufflinks in the picture above. Wear the shirt with the lapel open and team with a beige summer blazer, black and white boat shoes and finish off the look with a natural, woven pork pie hat and a shell boutonniere.

3. Chic Summer Shorts

Another funky look that you might want to consider for a beach wedding if you want something a little different that is not overly formal and still gives that touch of light heartedness to the beach wedding attire for men, is to combine a pair of beige tailored shorts, a tailored white shirt and a dark summer blazer with deck shoes. You can wear this with or without a tie.

Finish with a belt to match the shoes, beach wedding inspired cuff links (if you are wearing a suitable shirt) and a DIY starfish boutonniere. These can be easily made by gluing a real or beaded starfish to a brooch pin.

I know it sounds a little strange, but it actually looks really nice and is in context with the theme of the wedding. The photo here is testament.

If you are not really a guy for cuff links, hats and other accessories, but you still want to look like a million bucks at your beach wedding, then opt for minimal, but with style! A look that is really nice, because it is so simple is to pair white linen slacks with a navy blue or black dress shirt (the funky one above is quite a statement with its cuff and collar details and tailored fit) Combine with a braided navy belt, boat shoes, tennis shoes or these canvas bocanas from Lacoste. Fresh, uncluttered and handsome!

Match some navy shorts with a crisp white dress shirt and a pinstripe sports jacket. Complete the look with mulit-colored boat shoes, a braided, stretchable sailors belt and some sailing inspired cufflinks. Add a real sail boat as a venue for extra drama!
