What Men Should Wear to Weddings as Guests

in Fashion

Most fashion articles online are focused on female fashion. You can easily find hundreds and hundreds of articles after every Fashion Week that talk about nothing but female fashion and give women tips on what to wear and when. Well, since male fashion is on the upswing, it’s time to change that. The most difficult part of being fashionable is knowing how to be stylish on certain formal events. Wearing a suit and a tie is much more complicated than it looks, so if you have any insecurities or you want to know for sure how to rock your wedding style perfectly, here’s what you should pay attention to:

Opt for a black-tie

Even though there are plenty of different suit colors out there, there’s a reason a black suit and a black tie is a classic combo. Of course, but you need to know how to correctly wear it. Not only are the quality and the style important, but you can’t neglect the length of the sleeves, the shirt, the tie and the shoes. You really need to think carefully about each and every aspect of your attire, as this is what makes you fashionable and elegant.

Tailored suits

How many times have you seen someone wearing a nice suit that just didn’t add up somehow? This happens quite often, especially if guys choose nice suits that are unfortunately not made for them. Having a tailored suit really matters a lot, as you want to emphasize your figure and accentuate all of your good features. Also, if you have been invited to a wedding, this is even more important, as you don’t want to look shabby at this important event. Simply take a look at some of the most stylish countries in the world – it is actually very easy to find fashionable wedding suits in Sydney, for example, as Aussies really do pay attention to their style. The same can be said of Italians (even though their wedding style is a bit different).

Do not overdo it

Simplicity is the key to everything. Nowadays, there are plenty of different patterns for suits, shirts and ties (bow-ties), so it is very easy to get lost while trying to find the best option. Keeping it simple might just be what you want. For example, you can always choose a gray fitted suit, and make it interesting with a patterned shirt. However, if you do this, make sure that your suit and your tie and shoes are extremely simple, as you want to accentuate your shirt. The same goes for other items of clothing. If you want one part of your outfit to be bold and different, make sure that you keep everything else minimalistic. This is how you will achieve the best look.

Pay attention to the shoes

The shoes might seem quite unimportant, but it is actually a thing that can very easily destroy your final look. Never wear casual shoes for a wedding, especially if you want to pair them with a suit. Fortunately, the choice of dress shoes for formal events is quite substantial, and you really can’t go wrong with the classics, such as the good old Oxford shoe. Do not try to save money on the footwear – this will show and might ultimately affect your overall look.

As you can see, there are several rules that you have to follow in order to look your best at a wedding. Some might be costly, but then again, you have to spend a bit more if you want to style up for a formal event such as a wedding. Know the rules and the pieces you are going to wear, mind the color and the patterns, and you will be good to go.
