Keys to a Sharp Dressed Engagement Session

Jan 31, 2018

Last week we talked about 6 best dressed tips for her to nail your engagement session, but now it’s time to get into the specifics for the guys! Your outfit can really make or break your engagement photos, so this really is one of the most important decisions! But no need to stress, follow these tips and you’re sure to look (and feel) amazing! 

The best advice is the most simple – start with the suit. The typical pants/jacket combo in a modern cut is flattering for any body style. Chances are, most guys already own one that fits, but if not, you might be needing one soon! A suit is also a good option because of how easy it becomes to create variety in the images. Tie or no tie is dealer’s choice, but nothing flatters a guy like a well fitting suit jacket.

Or lose the jacket, pair with a sport coat or blazer, or change the shirt color! This is also an easy way to elevate the photos, and create something more timeless and elegant that won’t look dated or silly in 20 years – because a suit will always be in style!

Details with a suit are always a good way to coordinate with your girl. Adding accents like different ties, tie clips, belts, pocket squares, and colored socks are a great way to show subtle coordination without anything too cheesy. This will also help you look significantly more editorial and GQ-esque, which we all secretly want!

Next week (get excited…!) we’ll dive into some fun details about the actual wedding day!!
