The occasionwear edit for menswear inspiration

Often shopping with a special occasion in mind can have its added pressures. Whether you have a wedding to attend or want some smart pieces for your vacation, it's hard to know where to start.

So, keeping it short and simple, here are the recommended men's outfit ideas covering all of the social events you have coming up.

Wedding Attire

When dressing for a wedding, you do have to level up. You want to give off a well-polished impression that doesn’t border bad-fitting car salesman suits.

Men's Outfit Ideas

Consider the length of your trousers, it’s nice to have a slightly shorter length in the leg in summer, giving you the flexibility to mix up your footwear. Considering the fabrication, linen is always cool and slouchy for warmer temperatures.

Men’s Partywear

Anniversaries, birthdays, dinner parties; the general consensus is ‘any excuse for a party. So, you need a few elevated, statement pieces that you can dress up or down, depending on the occasion.

Men's Outfit Ideas

Shirting is back this season with silks, bright colours and playful prints that instantly give off a formality perfect for a party. Key trends around joyful expression and resort-inspired apparel have seen a rise in details and a combination of fabrications. Or alternatively, if you want to go for a more subtle approach, light knits worn under a jacket, needs little to no styling.

Garden Parties

It’s a known fact that as soon as the sunshine comes out, you can be sure someone's hosting a garden party. Keeping it well put together, and comfortable at the same time is key.

Mens Outfit Ideas

Look for those short-sleeved styles, overshirts and classic shorts. Towelling and linen provide a great mix of smart casual. Pair with trainers and sunglasses for a heat-proof, causal style. Stripes and neutral colour ways are trending palettes to note this season, which you can count on Orlebar Brown and Drôle de Monsieur.

Tropical Getaways

Investing in a couple of new pieces for your vacation is always part of it. Evening dinners, sunsets and plenty of Estrella, you need the wardrobe fits that you feel your best in to carry you through the evening.

Mens Outfit Ideas

Fabrication, colours and cool fits are what are needed for vacation dressing. Printed shirts and out-there designs are signature staples for vacation packing. Use abstract designs and bright colours to freshen up and invest in a pair of smart but casual footwear that you can wear on repeat, saving space in your suitcase.
