Smart Casual for a Wedding

Gone are the days where formality was the order of a wedding day. The celebratory dress code has expanded, and an expression of personal style is warmly welcomed. The big question is, how formal do you go? We’ve put together some of our favourite looks for smart casual wedding attire.

THE SUITABLY SUAVE ONE

This look is about showing some personal flair without overdoing it. It’s an upgrade on a classic look: a smart fitting blazer worn with straight leg dress pants and a slim fit shirt. Forget the tie and keep the top button undone. To look that bit smarter, the blazer should always be buttoned when standing. While the outfit is muted, a pair of perfectly polished brogues in burgundy or black speaks volumes.

THE INTELLECTUAL ONE

A fitted suit should be the base for building this outfit. This time, button your shirt to the top and layer a fine knit sweater on top – crew neck or V neck – just enough to show off your tie knot. The knit will perfectly frame the shirt and tie. Plus, if it gets too warm just remove the jumper. On that note, practice your Windsor knot for this outfit, it’s going to be out there for all to see. Proper dress shoes are essential for matrimonial matters, so choose leather or suede and ensure they are pristine.

THE LAIDBACK LUXE ONE

In a sea of formal suits, take the more relaxed look. Consider a pair of slim fitting dress pants with a fine knit turtleneck or a cotton polo shirt – weather dependent. Add a blazer or tailored jacket and some leather loafers to dress it up. Incorporate texture, pattern and colour wherever you can. To finish it off, a pair of socks peeking out from your loafers are a smart and practical addition to an already discerning look.

THE CLASSIC ONE

A gentleman never looks past a blazer when it comes to the smart casual dress code. A linen blazer is a classic for summer, while fabrics such as wool, cotton and cord are perfectly appropriate for the transitioning seasons. Anchor your outfit with a shirt and tie and a pair of dress pants. Accessories such as a belt, tie bar or silk pocket square will keep things modern. You can pick up added style points with a pair of loafers.
