Let’s admit, weddings are the best occasions to flex your sartorial style, grab a few eyeballs, and perhaps explore potential relationships. Whether you are a groom, a groomsman or just another guest, your well-dressed demeanor can win fans and alliances alike.
We’ve done the homework for you and collated the hottest wedding attire trends for this season. Read on and make them your own.
Let’s mark this as the first official opportunity to unleash your personal style. As corny as it may sound, the agenda here is to show the hippest dance moves in the hottest clothes.
Vibrant semi-casual outfits that offer functionality, comfort and style work best for this occasion. Choose jackets in vivid prints to go over a solid shirt and slim fit trousers. Alternatively, go for solid Linen blazers and pair them with a patterned shirt and slim fit trousers. Peppy floral shirts in Linen will be a rage this summer. Team these with matching trousers or chinos to achieve a totally rad look.
Don’t forget to add finishing touches with the right accessories - a classic leather belt and matching lapel pin will help you seal the deal.
A Cocktail Party serves as a pre-wedding appetizer, metaphorically speaking. Nonetheless, it’s an important place to connect, mingle, raise a toast to fashion and flaunt your confidence.
Cocktail events normally require a quasi-formal dress code. Well, let’s just say there’s enough room to carve a look that will let you brandish your gym bod.
So flaunt and flatter; go for well-fitted suits that hug your body at the right places and complement your build. Opt for colours like navy, grey, light grey, midnight blues, olive and khaki - these are predicted to be big in summer.
Another look worth trying out is to team a crisp formal white shirt and black trousers with a patterned waistcoat or pair checkered trousers with a printed dinner jacket.
As far as accessories as concerned, go creative with bolder ties, silk pocket squares, leather belts and dark Oxfords.
A Three-piece Wedding
Alas, we come to the main course – the D-day! You’ll need to pull all your guns out for this one, and we have only one advice to give – a three piece suit.
A three-piece comprises of 3 main elements - suit, waistcoat and trousers. The best part is that you can create your desired look with the right styling, colours and fit.
Focus on the fabrics that are comfortable, breathable and versatile. Linen is our top contender. Create a monochrome look where the waistcoat blends with the rest of your suit. Choose hot summer colours like navy, charcoal and light grey. To take things up a notch, throw in a waistcoat of a different colour or pattern.
Another way to play with a three-piece is ditching the waistcoat. Opt for knits as the middle piece in your suit sandwich.
Accessorize it up with pocket squares, a pocket watch, sleek leather belts, cufflinks or stylish formal shoes.
Talkabout finishing big and we’ll point you towards Lapel jackets. Reception evenings present the perfect platform to take your suit game higher.
Wider and more pronounced lapels are making a comeback this year. We suggest going for a single-breasted suit with peak lapels. Why? Because it’s flashier, a tad bit brash, and powerful. Opt formidnight blue, dusky navy, deep emerald and burgundy.
