Wedding Season: Any Dress Code
Wedding One: Black Tie
Wedding Two: Classic Formal
If your invitation says anything like "formal dress," you're best off sticking with sleek oxfords: Simple silhouette, dark calfskin, and a high shine. Ideal for looking your best without drawing too much attention away from the bride and groom.
Wedding Three: Daytime Or Destination
Brighter settings offer more color choices; if you're attending an outdoor wedding, the odds are good that you can get away with lighter shades of brown and burgundy, and even mix in some more casual textures. This goes double for warmer spots--like beachfront or southern weddings--where you can pair your linen or seersucker suit with rich summer colors.
Wedding Four: Wild Card
Are the bride and groom laid back? Or are you known for being bold? With the right attitude and among the right people, you can wear bright colors, aggressive patterns, or more casual silhouettes. Just make sure to know your audience: You don't want the in-laws to think you're stealing the spotlight!
