Wedding Guest Style Guide for Guys and Gals
What about the guys? They want to look just as dapper as the ladies, and I have noticed a lot of men stepping up their guest game in the apparel department. In Chicago, we have a lot of black tie weddings...and not a lot of guys I know own a tux (one that fits...it doesn't count if you wore 2 decades ago to your bar mitzvah, gentlemen).
I recently heard about a suit and tux rental site for guys...we gals have Rent the Runway, guys now have The Black Tux! They have an amazing selection of classic and slim cut suits and tuxes, ties, cuff links, shoes, the works. You simply select a style, measure online, try it on and return with ease. They send your items a week before the event to put your mind at ease.
They have some fun accessories that can jazz up a classic suit as well!
Here is a summer style guide so you know what to wear to which event...'cause Black Tie is totally different than Casual!
Let's go through each style and I will give my top picks for each! Since I love the concept of renting an outfit for a special occasion, I am using The Black Tux and Rent the Runway. You can snag an amazing dress, tux or suit at a perfect price. Rent the Runway pieces can be rented for a small fraction of the retail price. As for The Black Tux, their tuxes and suits cost $1,200+ retail, so grab them for a one time event for a steal!
