September 19, 2018

Are you looking for ways to mix up what you will wear to your next wedding? Not sure some of the style rules when it comes to combining casual and fancy? Today, you will be excited to know there are many ways you can mix and match style. In fact, you can add a little bit of flair by incorporating a Denver leather jacket with your outfit. It’s the perfect way to make your attire your own and memorable. Use some of these tips as you prepare what you will wear as a guest to upcoming weddings. 

Wedding Attire 101

Many couples today will mention what type of attire their wedding is. Or, you can get an idea based on the venue and the couple. Some of the top types of wedding attire descriptions in invitations include: 
  • Cocktail: When cocktail or semi-formal attire is mentioned, short dresses and dress shirt with dress pants and suit jacket are ideal. Upscale jumpsuits are also appropriate for a cocktail-style wedding. 
  • Semi-formal: This style is more upscale but not too upscale. Short cocktail or floor-length dresses for women and suits and ties for men. 
  • Formal: In all circumstances, floor-length dresses are for women and a darker suit or tuxedo is ideal for men. 
  • Black and white tie: These two types of style are similar but have differences. Black tie incorporates a long, formal dress (floor-length) for women and tuxedos. For white, floor-length or ballgown dresses are ideal and long-tail tuxedos are required. 

Tips for a Casual Wedding

For some couples, they will specify on their invitations their intentions for a casual wedding. For others, you might not be sure! Casual weddings are perfect to wear a light dress or casual pair of dress pants and a button-up shirt or polo. Depending on the venue, jeans and other everyday wear is appropriate. Jumpsuits are currently one of the most popular trends. If you have never worn a jumpsuit before, learn how to wear a jumpsuit like a style expert. 

Ways to Incorporate Jackets

Whether you are going to a semi-formal wedding or a casual one, a leather jacket is the perfect accessory. For ladies, a leather jacket can be worn with anything as upscale as a ballgown or with a summery cocktail dress. When looking for one to wear, try a shorter jacket that stops at the waist complements the bottom of the dress or skirt. For men, a fitted leather jacket can be worn with a button up shirt and tie. If the wedding is casual, wear a sleek pair of sneakers.
