Wedding season is in full effect and every time I go it seems like all the dudes look the same whereas all the girls look vibrant and fresh. F-that! Us guys can do so much better with just a little effort. Just a heads up, the tux I work is a bit over the top so you don’t have to go this far, but if you want to stand out it will definitely achieve that. First, I went for a super skinny tux from ASOS in classic black/white color pallet that was loaded with elastic. It was really comfortable and I would highly recommend it. Then I added a color splash with a teal velvet bow-tie and teal velvet loafers with embroidered white beetles. These will NOT go unnoticed and you will receive comments all night…be warned. For accessories I kept it simple with matching sunglasses and a natural grey beaded bracelet…mic drop.
I always was confused with I was going to an event and the attire was ‘smart casual’. What does that mean?!?! Well I think I finally figured it out. Although I will vary it up depending on the season, here is one of my favorite smart casual looks for Spring. Its a great blend of dressed up while still being casual in a look that is highly versatile and can be worn most anywhere and still stand out. The v-neck linen shirt is the perfect material for warmer Spring weather and a great clothes for short men tip is to cuff the pants up to show about 1″ of ankle to complete the detail of the look.
WHAT I’M WEARING
If you know me you know I’ve got a death grip on my edgier looks. But sometimes you need to dress it up a notch without breaking the look. Here’s a perfect example of how I like to pair an edgy style with a touch of sophistication. By adding double monk strap shoes and a blazer you keep your style versatile yet untraceable. This blazer is from ASOS which has a great selection of clothes for short men in an array of smaller sizes.
