Follow the dapper actor’s lead from the Venice Film Festival.

Summer is drawing to a close, and that means you've got only a few more weeks to fit in all the fun activities you still haven't checked off of your #Summer16 bucket list. So if you have the time and access this weekend, you really should get your ass on a boat. However, part of the draw of boat riding is, naturally, looking cool while you do it. So we're using this photo of Michael Fassbender riding a taxi boat through Venice, Italy, with his main squeeze, Alicia Vikander, on their way to a movie screening during the Venice Film Festival. You, sadly, will probably not be on this boat or in Italy. But there is much to learn from Fassbender's formal take on water travel.

Wearing a suit on a boat is just about as James Bond a move as you could pull without actually becoming a spy. Throw on a pair of shades and the world will fall at your feet. Now, clearly you won't be wearing your suit out on a fishing trip or to sunbathe. But let's say you're taking your significant other out for a special night of lobster rolls and micheladas. Why not class it up a bit? The best way to make it clear you didn't just come from work is to choose an all-black suit and a slim black tie. If that feels way too formal, go ahead and wear it with sneakers.

Damn, you look cool!
