Spring is finally here and that means one thing, out with the old and in with the new. I’ve been doing a lot of spring cleaning recently and got rid of a lot of old clothes that I’ve collected over the year and putting most of my warmer items into storage ( I still live in Canada, so I can’t put them all away). Spring also signifies the beginning of wedding season. – I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more wedding invitations I seem to be receiving (I’m only 25..sigh). Getting dressed up for these occasions can start to get a little pricey so I’ve teamed up with my friends at RW&CO to showcase how you can get the most out of your suit. I’ve put together a few tips to help facilitate shopping for the perfect suit that’ll help you not only look your best but feel your best while wearing it.Tip #1 Colour – If you’re only going to have a couple of suits in your closet make sure that one of them is a classic colour; grey, blue, or black. – They’re the most versatile colours to build with and if they’re of good quality they can be brought over from season to season.Tip #2 Fit – It’s 2015 guys, it’s time to get comfortable wearing more fitted clothes, so why not start with your suit? My favourite fit from RW&CO is the ‘Miles’ fit. It’s the slimmest of their three options (Miles, Preston, Haddington) that they carry and happens to be one of their most popular. If you’re apprehensive about purchasing a suit off the rack, RW&CO offers alterations to allow your suit to fit just the way you’d like it to. Tip #3 Shirts & Accessories – Once the foundation has been selected, the fun part begins. I don’t get dressed up too often but when I do, I love being able to find cool but subtle ways to making myself stand apart from the crowd. I decided to showcase how you can do that through your choice of shirt and accessories. In my first look I decided to wear a bold coloured dress shirt and then use a more subtle coloured options with the pairing of the tie, vest and pocket square to tone it down a little. Which is just the way I like it. I went for a classic white dress shirt in my second look and paired it with a bright tie. Sometimes you can make the biggest statements through the smallest pieces. I had so much fun putting these looks together and if you guys have any tips that you’d like to share with us, I’d love to hear them and you know how to get in contact with me! Cheers to spring & wedding season.
