Today’s post is a whole new concept : it is all about helping C O U P L E S to dress for weddings by giving them a few tips and ideas on how to pull off matching outfits without looking too heavy and dated.
Here are three ensembles that were initially inspired by Paul Fredrick and their wild range of amazing men shirts, so go check out their site and find some inspiration.
The first two ensembles are very chic. The female side is very dramatic and ultra feminine thanks to the off-shoulder dress that reveals the most gorgeous part of the woman’s body that you can accentuate by wearing a beautiful statement necklace.
The male attire is for its part quite classic yet modern and the best way of creating such outfits is by just picking a basic well-tailored suit, matching shoes and accessories and add just one statement piece to it, like the striped shirt here which not only brightens the whole look but also matches the female outfit with its orange brick and white stripes.

For the second ensemble, I opted for more neutral colors and less glamorous and extravagant outfits.
In Europe, guests are not supposed to wear white, especially female since it is the bride’s color but I encourage women to do it anyway. However, don’t ever go for a white floor-length gown! ^^ The dress should be very simple yet sophisticated.
This time, I couldn’t decide which way to go when it comes for the male part. Plain white as well as the vertical blue-and-white striped shirt both work perfectly with the sand shade of the shorts. Yes, I know shorts can be a risky choice, but if it is done the right way, your partner can be the best dressed male at the wedding.
As for the shirts, I usually prefer long sleeves. Learn how to roll them up the right way and just go for it, there is nothing more sexy than a man’s forearm showing off a nice watch. Shirt here.
For footwear, choose suede derbys or a fine pair of driving shoes. Tod’s Gommino are my favorites and their color palette will blow your mind!
And I will finish today’s post with monochrome and stripes, again! I can’t help myself.
People love black-and-white combos for weddings but most of the time their outfits are so deja-vu and completely boring.
Large black-and-white stripes can be a solution for women, however, the clothes should be more about white than black, since the shoes and clutch are entirely black.
For your partner, rather than picking out a plain white shirt, choose monochrome stripes that not only compliment your outfit but also add a graphic punch to his look. Shirt here .
When it comes to men accessories, sunglasses and watches are my favorites, as well as pocket squares so don’t be afraid to play with them.
You may wonder why ties are nowhere to be found, it is simply because men in general hate them and want to feel comfortable in what they are wearing (they are not like us and our damn heels!) and I personally think that ties are too formal so let the groom have it.
Guys, be ready to steal everybody’s thunder at the next wedding!
Wish you all a pleasant weekend.
