Today we're excited to introduce you guys to our first weekly menswear fashion post that we will be posting every Wednesday called Rugged & Refined! We've been talking about doing men's fashion on the blog for a while now and it's finally here! We wanted to show you two different outfits that guys can wear to a summer wedding. The first look would be great for more of a formal indoor summer wedding. We dressed Jordan in a blue suit for a more polished look. Jerry is dressed in a light, seersucker suit for a more casual, laid back feel that would be great for a garden or outdoor wedding setting.
We wanted Jordan to have a sleek look in his blue suit, paired with a crisp white dress shirt, and a patterned blue tie. The general rule of thumb when wearing a suit is two patterns and one solid. Jordan's suit has a subtle pattern and he accessorized with a patterned tie as well. For a more streamlined look make sure the tie is in the same color family as the suit. He went with a Calvin Klein extreme slim fit suit which we love because it's a really modern and tailored cut that fits him well. Navy and brown pair well together which is why we chose a brown belt and shoes.
When picking out a suit, it's important to choose a style that fits your body type. If you buy a finished suit off the rack from a store like Banana Republic or J. Crew, don't be afraid to have it altered even more for the perfect fit.
Jerry is wearing a seersucker suit that is perfect for a casual setting like an outdoor wedding. The seersucker suit is one that is strictly for the summer season. This suit style really makes a statement especially paired with his blue suede shoes. This is a great way to show your creative style. Since it's such a bold suit, keep it simple with a solid white dress shirt. Jerry also matched his bow tie with his shoes to balance out the look.
For a guy who wants to accessorize, nothing beats a watch to complete the look! Jerry kept his watch neutral with a brown leather band.
