As the nip in the air turns to a chill, and the year draws towards an end; preparations start in full swing for the big fat Indian wedding season ahead. You start getting invites for your colleague’s reception party, your cousin’s wedding or your friend’s cocktail party – and then the big question arrives! What to wear to all these occasions? Today’s fashion-conscious men want to look trendy, while standing out of the crowd at the same time. This wedding season, check out some dapper suits at the ongoing Suit Fest at a Lifestyle Store in association with Van Heusen to make sure that you get your swankiest style game!
Who said your suits need to be in blacks or greys? This season, break away from the monotony of neutral hues and go for dapper suits in rich, jewel tones. Invest in stylish suits in vivid colors like rich maroons, vibrant indigos, or dark greens for a trendy take on the classic suit. Van Heusen has many pairs of suits in these vivid colors which will definitely make one stand out. Pair these intense numbers with pastel-hued shirts and matching slim ties for a dapper outfit that’ll make you stand out in the crowd of neutral colors at your best friend’s reception party! You can finish the look with a pair of brogues in tan or grey and a gelled-back hairdo for the ultimate swag!
Three-piece suits are the highest order of style during any wedding. If you thought these wardrobe classics were only for your father or grandfather, then think again! The key to nailing a smart look in a three-piece suit is to choose one with a trendy waistcoat. Opt for a suit with a patterned waistcoat – be it a traditional brocade one or a quirky printed one – and it’ll make a style statement like no other! Keep the shirt and trousers simple, and accessorize with classic pieces like a silk pocket square or a pair of elegant cufflinks. Choose your three-piece suit in a darker shade from Van Heusen at a Lifestyle Store near you so that it doesn’t look too bulky, and makes you look sharp & swanky!
Fit and fine
One of the most important pointers to making sure you slay the suited look, is to flaunt suits that are well-cut, and perfectly fitted to your body shape. A suit with a baggy shape or one that is one size bigger or smaller than your body will end up messing up the whole style game. So, always make sure your suits fit you to a T, and are in a cut that complements your physique. Pair up your suit with shirt and accessories that complement the color of the outfit and you’ll be turning heads at your colleague’s wedding or your neighbour’s Sangeet ceremony!
The right accessories can make your suited look all the more stylish, while the wrong ones can break it. So, take care to choose accessories that complement your suave suit and help you get your wedding look on point! Ties in trendy or classic patterns always help in sprucing up a suit, specially if they are accompanied by a classic tie-pin. You can also ditch the ubiquitous tie for a trendy bow-tie in fun patterns or in a glam velvet or silk look. Quirk up a smart suit with a fun printed pocket square in pop colors. A fashionable watch is, of course, a suit’s BFF when it comes to statement accessories. And the best way to dress up a suited look is to pair it with eye-catching shoes – be it a classic oxford, or stylish brogues or even a pair of dapper patent leather slip-ons.
So, invest in some suave suits from the on-going Suit Fest in association with Van Heusen at your nearest Lifestyle store today, so that you can suit up in style for any occasion this wedding season!
