For today’s post I wanted to introduce a men’s brand called Paul Fredrick.  Since it’s wedding season I wanted to do a little “his and hers” for different types of outfits.  Now if you read this article that’s posted on the Paul Fredrick blog you’ll see that they give you guidelines on how to dress your body type.  So, with the help of Paul Frederick I did a little outfit post for both a man and woman attending a wedding.  Now I don’t usually go to weddings but I have a lot of friends that do and I’ve seen a lot of movies (hello Bridesmaids was probably the funniest movie ever). 

- Specific styles for men and women that compliment fashion trends in that location
  • Let’s say you’re going to a beach wedding.  Obviously we all know that flowy dresses or gowns and light colors for men are a great idea.  It gives the summer/beachy feel that the bride and groom were obviously going for.
  • My favorite type of wedding would probably be a barnyard wedding.  Light attire and neutrals would be perfect for something like this.  Just ladies try to stay away from ivories and creams because even though it’s not white in this type of a setting you might take away from the bride.
  • If you are going to a wedding where a church is involved prior to the reception and it’s not actually on a beach or in a barn you need to wear appropriate clothing.  This simply means wearing a conservative dress/suit.  Ladies just make sure you aren’t looking like you’re ready to go to a night club; keep it classy. 

- What's the appropriate dress length?

I think this is constantly changing.  One major “don’t” is not to wear a short dress/skirt.  Like I said in the previous paragraph, don’t walk in looking like you’re ready for the club.  Keep it classy.  You can wear a floor length dress but try to make sure it is simple enough that it won’t take away from the bride.  You always need to keep that in mind when shopping for a wedding guest dress. 

- The ideal dress shirt color/pattern for a summer wedding/ Ways to make you and your date's outfit complement each other.

So this is where my future girlfriend/fiancĂ©/wife comes into play.  How would I dress up my date?  In my opinion you have to match somewhat, like the picture above.  I took “his” outfit and gave it some light colors with accents of a mint/teal.  I then matched it with “her” outfit with a mint dress and gold accents.  The colors for his shirt should be a lighter color like this one.  You can have a pattern but try not to have an extremely loud print, something simple will suffice. 

- What color or pattern do you go with?

This is always changing.  Depending on the destination of the wedding or the theme of the wedding this will always change.  Some weddings you can pull off wearing light colors and others you have to go to it wearing a tuxedo or something extremely tailored.  If a guy is extremely lost and has no idea where to start, just go to your basic or even neutrals.  If you don’t like anything that stands out stay away from prints because it will stand out more once you add a tie to the mix.  Stick with light colors such as white, light blue, or neutrals.
