So it’s your wedding anniversary. This means that chances are good you’re in for a pleasant dinner at a fancy restaurant in celebration of the event. This also probably means your spouse has been spending anywhere from hours to days primping and prepping, in an effort to look good for you on your date. So it’s only fair that you reciprocate the gesture and put in a little extra effort into your appearance as well. Here are a few basic rules when picking out your attire for your special evening, because girls go crazy for a sharp-dressed man.
When trying to look nice for a wedding anniversary, it’s important to find a balance with how you look to prevent being over and under dressed. The best way to do this is to combine elements from male formal wear and casual attire. A button up shirt layered under a vest is always flattering. Or if you’re wearing some kind of pull-over shirt, try pairing it with a well tailored blazer. Proceed with caution when choosing pants. Even though everyone love jeans, they rarely can create a high-class look that appropriately matches a high-class establishment.
Business Too Casual
Just because you’re wearing a tie and button up shirt, doesn’t make you ready for the ball. The standard crisp button up shirt and business suit is pretty far from an exciting look. While it may be a step up from a t-shirt and jeans, it’s not at all that fashion savvy. Try using nontraditional colors instead of whites and pastels. You want to look like you’re going somewhere special, not going to work. This makes for a good opportunity to experiment with color which, believe it or not, can have a major impact on a man’s appearance.
Accessories can impact a man’s outfit just as much as it can a woman’s, a tie is the all-time champion accessory in the world of male fashion. Including a necktie is optional, but if you are prone to wearing one regularly, try skipping it, and vice versa. Part of dressing up in a notable way is stepping away from your standard daily attire, and going in a slightly different direction than what you normally wear, making this a unique piece in the sense that it’s exclusion can make your look really pop to anyone who personally knows you.
