When you’re heading to a wedding, finding the right thing to wear is always a priority. Unless you’re one of the groomsmen, you probably won’t have someone telling you precisely what to wear and coming up with an outfit that looks both trendy and dapper can be a challenge, even for the most fashion-forward of us. We wanted to help. Here are a few tips to help you look great at your next big occasion.
Stick with What You Know
Sure, you could go out and buy a new suit with a fancy cut that you’ve never worn before, but you don’t have to. If you have a nice suit hiding in the back of your closet and it fits, wear it! You’ll be more comfortable wearing something you know you look good in and that’s half the battle. After all, confidence is key in establishing a trendy style.
We know — as bow tie aficionados, we don’t have to tell you how awesome you’ll look in one of our dapper bow ties. If you’re on our site, you already know that they’re far superior to the straight necktie. However, you should always look for a tie that will fit both the suit’s style and show of a bit of our character. Look for a tie that has complementary colors to go with your suit and your shirt. Rather than sticking with a solid color, branch out and choose a patterned tie. You’ll show off your creative side while looking classy. If it’s cold out, don’t be afraid to wear a scarf. The same rules apply; look for a scarf that has a similar color scheme to your bow tie. While you’ll take it off as soon as you’re inside, you’ll still want to look awesome as you walk in.
Don’t Neglect Your Feet
Break out of the ordinary when it comes to your socks. Sure, plain black or navy are classy options, but why not show some flair when you’re sitting down? Wits and Beaux has a wide selection of dress socks for men, so we’re sure you’ll find the perfect pair in time for that wedding. Best of all, like our ties, our socks are colorful and trendy. You’ll be able to show off your creative side when your cuffs lift up.
Stay Classy with Your Shoe Choice
While we’re huge advocates of showing off your personality when it comes to your neckwear, you can’t go wrong being a bit conservative with your shoes. A solid black or brown oxford is the perfect way to complete your outfit and tie your look together. Sure, there are statement shoes out there, but with fashion, you really can have too much of a good thing in one package. Don’t worry, no one will think you’re boring if you play down your footwear. Just make sure they’re polished leather and leave the hightops in your closet.
Keep Track of Time
Very few people actually remember to wear a watch to the wedding. Hey, if it’s a long ceremony, this can make it go a bit faster, but someone should have a watch on. Let that someone be you! Look for a watch with a nice leather band. The color leather should match your shoes and should have a similar polish. As the night wears on and people start wondering how late it is, you’ll be the most popular man there, excluding the groom, of course!
