Last year we kissed goodbye to our social calendars as the pandemic meant that nearly every occasion in our diaries was drop-kicked into the future, but as we look ahead at the year to come, we are all crossing our fingers that the weddings we RSVP’d yes to back then can finally go ahead.

Anyone planning a wedding this year will have their own headaches to worry about, but what about those of us who are waiting for the go-ahead to scrub up and put on our shiny shoes? Most of us haven’t had to look sharp for anything more important than a work Zoom call for the last twelve months, and it’s fair to say that we could all use a little help getting our wardrobe into shape for wedding season when it finally arrives. Here are a few tips on how to make yourself look sharp and make up for all that time spent in your pyjamas.

Be Honest With Yourself About Your Suit

Now, it could be argued that men have it easy when it comes to dressing up for weddings. After all, there’s really only the suit to worry about, right? Well, that is why it is twice as important that your outfit is razor sharp. It’s time to head into the wardrobe and see if the suit you set aside for weddings is really doing the job. Is it in a state where a trip to the dry cleaners isn’t going to be enough to salvage it? Has your body shape changed during 2020 and it’s now far too big or way too small? Embrace the new year by getting a new suit that not only looks right, but feels right.

Make A Statement With A Brand New Watch

Everyone knows that there is no substitute for a sharp, stylish watch. Why? Because a great watch the perfect accompaniment for any suit. A great watch is a statement about the person wearing it. It gives its owner a sense of confidence and timeless elegance. It can be understated and classic, or a top of the line high-tech piece of equipment that is ready to function in any conceivable environment. Take the Air King by Rolex, for example, the evolution of a design used by British fighter pilots during World War II. It is effortlessly stylish and incredibly practical, and you can learn all about it and browse different models at Chronext.

Don’t Forget About Your Shoes

So, you’ve got your suit and your watch sorted, and you’ve (hopefully) had your hair cut, but what about your footwear? It is going to be very important to be flexible as the wedding you attend may well be outdoors to comply with social distancing measures. You are going to need to make sure that you have a pair of shoes that is sharp enough to wear to a day that people will remember for the rest of their lives, but sturdy enough to handle any weather conditions. If those black dress shoes that have been sitting at the bottom of your wardrobe for the past several months don’t look like they’re going to cut it, then it is time to level up.
