Wedding season is officially here and as the invites start to roll through, you may be wondering where your old tux is. Fear not however, because unless you’ve been explicitly told to wear a black tie, you’ve got permission to mix it up. While ditching the suit and tie is somewhat risqué, travel and style expert Shaun Birley has shown us how it can be done.

For an afternoon wedding, where the dress code is a little relaxed, keep it cool and crisp with a linen and chino combo. As to not upstage the bride (or commit a wedding style sin) if you opt for Birley’s all-white look break it up with different tones of white. Look to a brogue or classic loafer to keep it classy, and add refined accessories to keep it smart.

The look doubles as Summer work attire or even holiday gear. Shop the look below.
