While summer is all about stripping back your style to bare essentials like graphic T-shirts and shorts, it’s also a season packed full of formal events, such as weddings, and that’s exactly when your casual uniform won’t cut it.

Fear not and take a cue from Frank Ocean’s offbeat approach to formal steez, and embrace strict tailoring with a streetwear-inflected twist. Nowadays, even the most formal dress codes are relaxed and flexible enough for you to remix your smartest of looks with a little personality.

If Frank Ocean can literally wear Vans to a dinner at the White House, then you can most definitely get away with a looser approach to formal wear this summer.

Just because you have to suit up, it doesn’t mean you have to hide the streetwear head within. Here are our favorite product picks to buy now in order get relaxed formal wear right.
