Basic Tips for Men's Suits

Designer Suits
A wedding is a time for celebration. Don't feel left out or awkward by selecting the wrong type of men's suits. Stick to classic looks, dark colours, and you'll be as well dressed as the groom.Winter is drawing near, and it won't be long until holiday inspired cards and party invitations start making their way to your mailbox. Along with these annual holiday cards, you may find yourself invited to at least one winter wedding. Whether this is your first winter wedding or you happen to be a seasoned pro at dressing for formal events, you'll still glean a few tips from the following advice on men's suits. The first step to dressing appropriately for any wedding is to determine whether the event is formal or semi-formal. A semi-formal wedding invitation isn't as difficult as you may think. The tuxedo is obviously ruled out, so what men's suits are best?

With this type of affair, there are several options you will have for your wardrobe.

Depending on your current wardrobe, you may not need to shop for the upcoming event. Do you own a black, tailored power suit? Most men do. Although you generally pull this out for business meetings or when giving a presentation, a black suit is perfect for a winter wedding.
If you are wondering whether a blazer, tweed jacket, or sports jacket are appropriate for a winter wedding, the general answer is no. Stick to dark coloured men's suits. You wouldn't want to show up feeling underdressed. Semi-formal means black tie or tux are not required. Be respectful of the occasion by looking your best.
A wedding is generally not the time to try out that brightly coloured shirt or a new style trend. Even at semi-formal occasions, you'll feel your confident best when you stick to a timeless, classic look. A white button cuff dress shirt and a silk tie with pocket square are perfect.

A formal wedding is going to require a little more preparation and style. At a formal wedding, everyone is dressed to the nines. With a little help, you can be too. Here are a few of the choices you may have for a formal celebration.

The ultimate formal attire for men has to be the tuxedo. This piece of clothing exhibits class and sophistication. Choose a tux in a wool blend for winter weddings; this type of fabric will keep you warm despite the cool weather. Many tuxedos also come with a Teflon coating, to resist stains and keep you looking sharp through the entire event.
Wedding suits are generally different than everyday suits. For winter weddings, it is best to choose suits in darker colours, such as black, dark grey or navy blue. Wool is ideal for the season.

Wedding dress designers let their creative juices flow when creating their designer masterpiece for today's discerning bride.

Mens Wedding Attire

Mens Wedding Suit
Men's wedding attire is usually more complicated. As fashion experts assert, it may be more challenging to dress and accessorize men than women. Aside from that, many men are not actually concerned about their fashion sense. They would rather be comfortable than be fashionable. However, modern men have changed. A proof to this is the popularity of men's wedding attire. Yes, most men of today are now anxious to be fashionable. They would be more comfortable if they dress up appropriately. For a formal wedding, a basic tuxedo is ideal even if you are a guest. Match it with a grosgrain or satin lapels, a black jacket, a bow tie, trousers, and a cummerbund. If a full evening dress is required in the invitation, going with a white tie is the fashionable deed to do. In a wedding party, black tie is usually preferred. You may opt to come in a white dinner jacket or simply, a tux. As a wedding guest, charcoal- or black-colored suit would always be fine. For daytime wedding, black tie could be considered optional. It would be better if you would come in linen or tweed suit in a fashionably classic dark or earthy colour.

men's wedding attire for specific seasons

When choosing men's wedding attire, you may consider the season and the time of the wedding. If the wedding day falls in a spring or summer, twill or linen suits are ideal. For beach weddings, you may drop the tie and go wearing a simple blazer on top of dress pants in perfect shade of beige, blue, cream, or grey.

For a night wedding during spring or summer, avoid wool suits as the weather may already be warm enough. Choose a comfortable ensemble of cotton. Go wearing a darker-colored suit.In a wedding party, black-tie tux still is a must.

Accessories for men's wedding attire

Accessorizing is another typical problem among men. Avoid being a possible fashion victim by going with the right accessories. For the classic tux option, satin or silk bow tie in black with cummerbund is fashionable. As an alternative, go for vest and solid black tie.

Your belt must be thin, shiny, and black. For formal wear and tuxedos, belts could be replaced by waistcoat, cummerbund, or suspenders. If you opt to wear cufflinks, silver or pearl compliments men's wedding attire during daytime, while gold or black is fashionable during evening events.
