Dilemmas Of Man: Do You Have To Wear A Suit To A Wedding?

These are the vows thou must not break when sans-suiting at a time of holy matrimony.

Ditch The Collar

The collarless shirt is the new Oxford button-down. As long as it’s a crisp white one, paired with the right accessories, you’ll find yourself on the right side of the bridesmaids.

Trust In A Bomber

You don’t always need a blazer to make you feel like a wedding don. Invest in a bomber and you’ll add a cool edge to your attire—a stiff cotton one works best for formal occasions.

Go For Cool Colors

Now you’ve done away with suit tradition, you can get edgier with your colors. Powder blue wins it for us.

Update Your Kicks

You may get a sideways look from the groom’s nan, but classic brogues look ace with a splash of color on the tread sole.

Welcome To Your Suit Alternatives. If ditching the smart threads scares the hell out of you, try these tailoring twists instead.

The Linen Suit

Think Miami Vice remade for 2015. Add a white shirt and a printed tie for a head-turning look, and your plus one will be lucky to be on your arm.

The Short Suit

Forget schoolboy, think Ryan Gosling. With a strong tan, shiny new brogues and a pocket square, you’ll be sure to get a dance with your Eva Mendes.
