Updated: Jul 13, 2022

Summer is in full swing, which means prime wedding season has begun. That means outdoor weddings, beach weddings, destination weddings, and elopements. Just because a wedding is in the summer doesn’t automatically mean it’s casual attire. Summer weddings can be anything from formal, semi-formal to beach formal, and casual attire. Of course, always check the venue and invitation before selecting an outfit. Because regardless of what's trending, some guidelines apply no matter what. These are things such as no white, all black, or overly sparkly attire. No matter what type of wedding is on the docket this year, there are plenty of options. Keep reading to learn about our Top 5 Wedding Attire Options of 2022.

1. Airy suits and dresses

First on our list of Top 5 Wedding Attire Options of 2022 are airy suits and dresses. Lightweight breathable fabrics are key when attending a summer wedding. However, remember that the event's formality still plays a role as well as the venue. Long skirts and dresses are best for a formal wedding, and mini or midi skirts are better for casual or cocktail gatherings.

2. Blended suit fabrics

Next on our list are blended fabric suits. These suits are a good option for a formal event, while still being breathable and comfortable. Wool-linen is a popular choice because it’s able to be worn all year round. A wool-silk blend is also a great choice because silk is soft and good for warmer destinations. Another option is a light-colored suit or white dinner jacket.

3. Metallic accents

Third on our list of Top 5 Wedding Attire Options of 2022 are metallic accents. Usually, summer is synonymous with bright colors and patterns. However, mixing it up is trending this year. Metallic tones are usually associated with winter weddings, but this year thinking outside the box is trending. For a fun accent, you can’t go wrong with a clutch, necklace, or earrings in silver or gold. Shoes are also an easy way to accent an outfit while still being subtle. Or if you’re opting to wear attire in a metallic color instead of just as an accent, pale grey or silver are usually safe choices. It’s just important to choose wisely because, in a certain light, those colors can be mistaken for white or ivory.

4. Cutouts

Fourth on our list is attire featuring cutouts. Choosing an outfit with a cutout is more than a fashion choice. They are also breathable for the summer. Dresses with cutouts at the waist, neck, or back are on trend for this season. For another option other than a long dress, there are a few choices. Styles with mini hemlines, deep v-necklines, and cropped sets are also on-trend.

5. Earth Tones

And last but not least, on our list of Top 5 Wedding Attire Options of 2022, are earth tones. Although bright colors are usually worn for summer weddings and events, softer, muted earth tones are in for this summer wedding season. Popular colors this season are sky blue, green, and lilac. These colors provide a softer, understated but still trendy look.
