Mens Fashion – How to dress for a summer wedding

The wedding season is in full swing and it is time to start planning what to wear if you have a summer wedding to intend. I like to look well put together when I attend weddings. Weddings are a good excuse to play dress up, so I like to go all out on such occasions. I love seeing men dressed up smart too! A man in a good suit attire would be admired by many so it is a great idea to go dressed up looking very smart. Here are some mens fashion tips for dressing for a summer wedding.

Dress code?

The first thing to do is to pay attention to the dress code if any. That way you have a feel of what sort of wedding it is and how best to dress. If in doubt, the best way to dress to a wedding is to go overdressed. That can easily be overlooked and even admire. But going underdressed is a no-no.

Get a great suit

The easiest way to nail a summer wedding look is to make sure your suit looks good. I prefer dark coloured suits because they tend to look nicer. I also like when a man’s suit looks good on him, so having the right size for a great fit is crucial. It is best to go into a mens store and try out the suit to be sure you get the right size. A suit is not something you want to buy online unless you are certain it is going to fit great. Also, ensure that the fabric of the suit fits the weather. For summer weddings, linen suits work better. You can opt for a linen suit mixed with cotton or silk to avoid excessive crinkling.

 

Pay attention to the shirt

The last thing you want is to have a not so great looking shirt underneath a great suit. So make sure the shirt you pick suits the occasion. For summer weddings, you can opt for short sleeve collar shirts rather than the traditional dress shirts.

 

Let your shoes do the talking

When it comes to menswear/mens fashion, shoes are very important. For weddings, only formal shoes would work, so don’t be tempted to wear anything else. You don’t want to ever go to a wedding wearing a pair of sandals or trainers. Regardless of how warm it is, proper shoes are to be worn on a suit at a wedding.

2 Things Men Should Remember When Dressing Up

*Collaborative post.

 

Admittedly, men have it a little easier when it comes to fashion. When all else fails, a well-fitting shirt and pants can work for almost anything. If you need to get fancy, there are a few designs of suits to choose from. As men’s attires are simple, we can virtually mix and match almost anything.

However, given how simple things are for us, it often becomes a little bit more of a challenge on the occasions where we’re supposed to dress up, especially during winter. While there are things that can help with getting this look started (a brief look into our Bogner men’s vests, jackets, and pants during the cold days or nights) there’s a lot more work involved when it comes to styling our looks for those special occasions.

If you’re looking to add a little more style and flair to your wardrobe without going overboard, here are two tips you can follow:

 

2 Things Men Should Remember When Dressing Up image

 

 

  1. Your look depends on you, not just on your clothes

Clothes do make the man, but on the occasions that they don’t, it’s the man who carries the clothes. You can have the best clothing in the world but if you don’t have the confidence or the personal style to pull it off, you might not achieve what you want. There’s a subtle art to carrying men’s clothing, a mixture of your own personal esteem and a reflection of how you carry yourself.

In simpler terms, the best thing you can start with is your posture. Clothing for men often emphasizes a wider frame, encouraging the wearer to occupy as much space as possible and enhancing areas, such as the shoulders. You’re supposed to solidly occupy the space that your clothes do, and simple things such as straightening your back and squaring your shoulders can work wonders.

 

  1. Less is more

There’s an inherent expectation for men to pull off more by doing less, and this is best exemplified in how formal attire works for them. A few things are as striking or as suitable as a three-piece suit for a reason; the simpler the outfit is, the easier it may be for a man to carry it. Men’s clothing should conform between being utilitarian and stylish—not too much, but not too little that it limits your individuality.

One of the best ways to boost your style without being too conspicuous is wearing an accessory or two. Things like cufflinks, wristwatches, rings, and necklaces can all be incorporated tastefully into a man’s wardrobe with little to no work needed, though great care must be taken when choosing these accessories. Sometimes, just a single accessory can ruin an entire look, so choose carefully.

If you keep these tips in mind while dressing up, you can avoid some mistakes that could cost you your self-confidence once you step out of your room. There is a perfect time to dress up and the right way to do it. If you do this carefully and with much thought, you can stand out at any party or occasion you attend.

Spring Jackets for the Man in your Life

It is starting to feel like spring. The sun is out today and it feels a bit warmer. But I hear we are going to have a white Easter in England. Can you imagine that? I hope a miracle happens and the snow never appears. The snow is so exhausting now. I just want some normal spring weather. Is that too much to ask?

When spring finally appears for real, I will be confident enough to keep all our winter gear back into storage. I heard some proactive people bundled their winter gear into storage only to dig them out again when the Beast from the East appeared. I am happy I didn’t have to do that.

A new weather means a different type of clothing. Spring fashion is all about lighter and brighter pieces. So I am looking forward to the prints and florals hitting the stores soon. With that in mind, I have been doing some online window shopping and popping items into various wish lists. I have my eye on a few pieces for the myself, the kids and the hubby. And I am hoping to get them soon.

Spring jackets is high on the list for us all, especially the hubby. He has not shopped for spring items in ages, so there are loads of gaps in his wardrobe to fill.

Here are a few Ellesse spring jackets I have been eyeing lately.

 

Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Charcoal £55.00

The colour of this Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Yellow was the first thing that got my attention. I think it is a great spring jacket to have in the wardrobe this season. It features a half zip fastening with front zip pockets, with further detailing to arms and chest.

Many may shy away from this piece because of how bright it looks, but I think it is a beauty. Would your man like this?

This Ellesse Sortoni Jacket Anthracite jacket would be popular this spring because of the simplicity of it. It looks good and does the work beautifully, which is what most men who cannot be bothered with fashion need. I like the fact that it has a full zip front with fastened hand pockets.

I can see the hubby loving this particular spring jacket a lot.
