Guys, it’s totally understandable if you’re not sure how to dress for a summer wedding. According to The New York Times, Millennials are getting married later than any other generation — with an average age of 27.4 for women and 29.5 for men. Chalk your hesitation up to the fact that there just haven’t been as many opportunities to polish that #OOTheWeddingDay.
That said, whether the event’s in your hometown or is a destination wedding, you always want to arrive in style. While guys don’t have to worry about outshining the bride, that doesn’t mean you should just fade into the background. This is your chance to flex your style — from the ceremony to the dance floor to brunch the next day (assuming you make it, of course).
Plus, even if you’re not the one walking down the aisle, you always want to put your best foot forward. That’s why we’ve assembled this handy list of men’s dress loafer suggestions that are the perfect answer for what to wear to summer weddings. While you can trust these kicks are trendy enough for special occasions, we promise you’ll rock their timeless looks season after season.
Sure, everybody is going to be watching the rings being exchanged at the front of the room — and we would never want to steal the spotlight. However, the second-most buzzed-about bling at the party will be these tasseled gold loafers and their gold details. Made of a union of elevated leather with a slight sheen and complementary metallic elements, these black dress loafers pair perfectly with a more muted wedding outfit (think: a light grey suit) that won’t take away any of the attention.
