How to Accessorize Menswear
We love wedding dresses, but menswear is fun too. Today we're bringing you a post about the ins and outs of men's accessories?
Every groom wants to find the right suit for his wedding. Many don't realize, though, that the accessories are just as important as the suit. By choosing the right accessories, you can transform your wedding suit's style so that it matches your personality (and, of course, whatever design choices your future-spouse has made for the wedding).
The Shoes Make the Man
Most men choose to wear Oxfords on their wedding days. Oxford shoes have a classic look that really can't go wrong. If you want something with a little more flare, consider cap toe shoes, which are basically Oxfords with some design embellishments. You should also consider dress boats. They are a little more informal. Paired with the right outfit, though, they can look great.
Neckties, Ascots, and Bowties
The right tie can make or break a suit. The type of tie that you choose will usually depend on the kind of wedding that you want. If you've planned an informal wedding, then a necktie probably suits you best. Before buying a necktie, though, consider what type of knot you prefer. Wide knots like the Full Windsor work best with neckties made of thin silk. Choosing a thick tie made of wool or cotton could result in a big knot that looks out of place.
Ascots are usually worn during formal weddings. These short, wide ties tuck behind your vest. If you're not wearing a vest, don't even think about an ascot. You'll look like you're wearing your kid brothers necktie.
Some men can pull off bowties effortlessly while others look a little silly in them. The good thing about bowties is that they add just a splash of color. That can look great when paired with a well-made suit. Before you go for the bowtie, though, you should opinions from people who will tell you the truth. If the bowtie goes well your suit and looks good on you, go for it.
Cufflinks Can Add to Almost Any Suit... Almost
Assuming that you have a good-looking suit, you can't go wrong with cufflinks. That assumes, of course, that you plan to wear a shirt made for cufflinks. If the shirt's cuffs don't have buttonholes, obviously you shouldn't wear cufflinks. Also, cufflinks look best when you look your best. Choose a well-made suit and your cufflink will complement it well.
It makes sense to choose cufflinks that say something about your personality and interests. If you have a favorite hobby, look for cufflinks that highlight that interest. People can only see what's on the cufflinks when they get pretty close, so they're a somewhat personal decoration that should make you feel special on your wedding day.
