INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

THE WEDDING EDIT

It’s that time of year again: wedding bells are ringing, your calendar is packed and you’ve got to get sharp. Choosing the perfect suit can be difficult, so our Fashion Team have selected five options to cover a range of scenarios – from full-on formal to evening guest-only. Keep reading for the full run-down.

THE PERFECT SUIT

Topman oversized suit, starts at £40

Not only does a double-breasted blazer bring 1940s suaveness, but it helps slimmer body types look more balanced – tailoring is all about proportion, after all. This light colour is just right for an outdoor summer wedding. For the finishing touches, we recommend keeping your tie tonal, maintaining that sense of elegance.

THE FAIL-SAFE OPTION

If in doubt, take things back to basics. You'll never misjudge the mood with a crisp-white shirt – it’s simple but a classic. For those seeking a greater sense of adventure, adding a check suit is the way to spice things up, while still staying fully wedding-appropriate.

FORMAL SOPHISTICATION

Topman skinny three-piece check suit, starts at £40

If you've got a more formal wedding ahead of you, nothing beats a three-piece suit. Yes, it's traditional, but a slight switch-up in shape and pattern will stop things from feeling dated. As you're already in a smart suit, don't worry about dropping the tie this time.

AFTER DARK

Topman Scarface print shirt, £30
Topman slim suit trousers, £40

Evening guest-only? No problem. In fact, the pressure is off – your outfit can focus on the after-party rather than the ceremony. Tailored trousers with a statement shirt set the tone perfectly, touching on the fun side of formal.

COMFORTABLE COOL

If a three-piece feels too formal, but you still want to show people you've made the effort, opt for a single-breasted suit. It's formal enough to wear with a white T-shirt, along with a pair of trainers (just make sure they're spotless). The suit does the heavy living here, striking the perfect balance of smart and casual. And now you've matched the moment, but on your own terms – style really is all about feeling comfortable and confident.
