Weddings always get us thinking about what the bride or the other ladies present at the occasion are going to wear. But what about the groom and other male guests? Aren’t weddings and their accompanying occasions a time for them to dress up too? We know a perfectly tailored suit or an elegant ethnic set can serve every occasion of the lot, but that doesn’t mean that’s all the choice you guys have.
There are many more stylish options to go for that can make one stand out in the various pre-wedding parties like cocktail parties, engagement parties, bachelorettes, etc. These outfits certainly have the permission to be less formal or traditional than the main day but will add just the right amount of glamour to your persona before the core celebrations start!
Born to blaze in a blazer
Blazers are a must for every man’s wardrobe owing to its versatile character. Semi-formal blazers can really pull together a look be it for an engagement party or a cocktail bash. Wear a blazer over a chambray shirt or a plaid button up for a neither-too-dressy-nor-too-casual look. Team it with linen trousers and a classic pair of brogues to steal hearts wherever you go this wedding season. You can also go for a metallic toned brogue for a more fun take on the otherwise semi-formal outfit.
Party shirt shenanigans
Dress shirts or party shirts are the best options to go for when you are not in the mood for layering up for the night. Go for the classic white, any shade of blue or unexpected hues like pink or lavender or forest green which can easily set you apart from the crowd. For a dressier occasion, you can choose silk instead of cotton and pair it with well-tailored trousers. You can also go pair a nice printed party shirt with denims and complete the look with a pair of suede boat shoes. These laidback yet smart looks are perfect for your best friend’s bachelorette or your cousin’s rehearsal dinner.
A suit-able boy
Suits, irrespective of being the most predicted choice at such occasions, are a classic that are favoured by most suave men. Just put together a shirt in tones like navy, black, white or grey and choose a matching suit to go with it. You can go for neutral hues like beige, black etc. or take on a new avatar in bold shades like burgundy, all-white, checks or stripes. The dapper dude can also quirk up an otherwise neutral suited look with a floral tie or a chunky watch and turn heads in style at an engagement ceremony.
The 3-piece suit saga
The 3-piece suit, consisting of the jacket, the waistcoat and the trousers, is undeniably one of the smartest and most sophisticated outfits for party occasions. As you know, the drill is to choose a classic matching look with the waistcoat blending into the rest of the outfit. You can even add a bit of quirk for a bachelor bash with a bright patterned pocket square or a fun bowtie. If you want to play it a bit more bold, you can also go for a waistcoat in a contrasting colour or pattern. Complete the look with a smart watch and classic brogues to take the style game quite a few notches higher at your colleague’s cocktail party.
You are now fully equipped to attend those pre-wedding parties with spot-on style. Be comfortable in your skin and have that charming smile of yours in place, and these classic yet smart outfit combinations will make sure you impress all the right people at these happening events!
