While boutiques are inundated with outfit options for women, the choice for men can sometimes be a little difficult to determine – is a waistcoat and bow tie too formal? Do you run the risk of going too casual with your standard go-to checked shirt? To help decipher the mystery of what a wedding guest should wear, leading men’s designer and clothes retailer Tessuti have put together a few helpful tips to make sure that you not only look the part at weddings, but that you also pull off any look with that essential dose of style.
Dress for the Occasion: Make sure you are aware what kind of theme the wedding will follow before deciding on your outfit. Church weddings generally follow a formal theme - make sure you step out in a crisp suit and shirt combo. Beach weddings usually call for something a little more laidback – think relaxed linens and beige trousers (3/4 trousers may even be acceptable in this case – but check with the bride first!).
Suit Up: With the exception of beach weddings, the majority of weddings do call for formal attire. Even if you live in your chino trousers, for a wedding it is time to up the ante – suit trousers in classic black or charcoal will make sure your look stays smart yet classically stylish.
Add a Pop of Colour: Remember, despite all the pomp and pageantry of a wedding, it’s also a celebration, so don’t be afraid to inject a little fun into your outfit. Add a pop of colour with a pastel coloured tie or lighten up any suit with a bright shirt - Polo Ralph Lauren have a great selection of pastel shirts ideal for looking smart and staying cool.
Don’t Forget Accessories: Just because you’re dressing formally doesn’t mean you have to forgo your own sense of style. Bring any suit and tie combo up to date by styling in your favourite accessories - a designer belt or set of cufflinks will ensure serious style points all day long.
