While most men may seem perfectly content with a simple getup, jeans and tee-shirt killer combinations, fashion-savvy men and women know the importance of having the right accessories. Your wedding is one of the few days when you’re expected to look and feel like a million dollars. If you’re having a formal wedding, all the more reason to look your absolute best.
The right groomswear accessories can easily make or break your entire outfit. You may feel dapper in a perfectly tailored suit or tuxedo, but you can’t be dashing and debonair without a few accessories designed to bring a little extra-elegance to your attire.
Scarves are a great way to introduce color and style to any outfit. When it comes to looking stylish, spiffy and suave in men’s formal wear, you can’t go wrong with the right scarf.
A scarf is a type of garment, more like a long strip of fabric that is worn either around the neck or near the head to give the wearer warmth, and to add a dash of style an outfit. Most scarves are created from knitted fabrics like wool, and are usually tied around the wearer’s neck for additional warmth.
Scarves come in many different colors, fabrics and designs. The key to finding the perfect scarf is locating one that addresses all your needs and requirements. Your choice of scarf material, color and style usually depends on when and where you intend to wear this type of garment. For example, the scarf that you’d normally wear when running everyday errands may not be the same scarf that you’d want to wear to your formal wedding.
For formal weddings, your main choice of scarf material should be either silk or wool. Silk scarves are timeless and elegant pieces that can be worn to various semi-formal and formal events. Wool scarves bring old world elegance to outfits with their plush and lush texture.
Because scarves are a wardrobe staple for both men and women, especially in climates where the winter weather is predominantly below zero degrees, it’s important that you view this purchase as a long-term investment. If you want a scarf that you can wear over the next few winters, it’s highly recommended that you choose a silk or a wool scarf made by a reputable designer or manufacturer.
For wonderful and incredibly fashionable scarves, go crazy over designer pieces created by world-renowned companies and designers like Hermès, Salvatore Ferragamo and Marisol Deluna. Aside from offering you protection from the cold, a scarf will make you look and feel like a real gentleman.
Aside from giving you protection from cold, your designer scarf also happens to be a stylish addition to an otherwise boring and bland getup.
Choosing Your Wedding Scarf
Tip 1: Think about scarf length before you make your purchase.
Long scarves are usually more versatile than their shorter counterparts. If you want a scarf that you can wear to other occasions, then pick a slightly longer scarf than what you’re accustomed to.
Tip 2: Find the right scarf color.
Scarves come in many different colors. Your scarf will not only bring color to your outfit, it can also be used to create contrast between your plain tuxedo and your bright scarf. For ultra-formal weddings, go for more subdued colors like dark red, gray, black or white.
Tip 3: Lastly, look for a scarf that matches your entire tuxedo ensemble.
We can’t stress this enough: if you’re going to be wearing a vest or a cummerbund to your wedding, make sure your scarf matches the rest of your outfit. For less formal occasions, you can pick a fun scarf in bright colors and patterns to help lighten the otherwise sombre ceremony.
