Groovy Groomsmen: Coordinating with Bridesmaids

When you get married, there are many fashion considerations to take into account. You need to think about colors and themes, and whether anyone is going to match anyone else. Some wedding parties have groomsmen all wearing exactly the same thing, while others a bit looser when it comes to choosing outfits. One thing you might want to consider doing is tying in the groomsmen’s outfits to the bridesmaids. You might especially want to do this if the people standing up with the bride and groom aren’t strictly split along gender lines. Making sure the groomsmen look sharp while the bridesmaids look their best can be tricky, but there are ways to do it.

Choose Wedding Theme or Colors

Before you can start matching up your bridesmaids and groomsmen, you need to have a wedding theme or colors. This is often one of the first things you pick when planning a wedding. You need to make sure both of you have agreed to and are clear on the colors you want to use, and the theme of the wedding if there is one. A theme doesn’t have to be too specific. It can just help to narrow your wedding choice down. It could be something like “rustic” or “vintage”, or you might pick something more specific, like a particular period or even a pop culture reference.

Decide How Coordinated You Want to Be

Once you know your theme or colors, you need to think about just how coordinated you want everyone to be. You might want to have everyone be as matching as possible, but you could also be more relaxed about your approach. Your groomsmen could all be in the exact same suit, with the same shirts, shoes and accessories. However, you might also want to pick a certain style or color and then let them choose the exact outfit they want to wear. This allows each of them to find something they feel comfortable in. Some might want to wear a vest under their jacket, some might like a tie while others want a bowtie. It also leaves room for them to wear things they already have, like a pair of formal shoes, instead of buying new.

Financing Your Wedding Fashion

Paying for outfits is something you might want to think about before making decisions about coordinating. Your budget could dictate whether you decide to make an effort to coordinate your groomsmen and to match them to bridesmaids. It’s also worth considering who is going to pay. In the US, members of the wedding party usually pay for their own outfits. However, in the UK, it’s usually the bride and groom who pay. If you’re considering paying, you might want to think of how to find the space in your budget. If you own your home, a homeowner loans company could help you out with some more cash. However, if you’re trying to keep costs down, you might not offer to pay. Just make sure that everyone knows they have to pay for themselves before they accept.

Pick a Matching Motif

Using wedding colors is one way to get groomsmen and bridesmaids to coordinate. Another option is to pick a motif that can feature on both the bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s outfits. This is often easy to do with flowers. The brides can carry bouquets, and the groomsmen can wear boutonnieres featuring the same flowers. Or you could consider having a pin, which the grooms have on their jackets and the bridesmaids have on their dress, holding a shawl together, or even in their hair. The motif could also be a pattern that features on the bridesmaids’ dresses or shoes and also on the groomsmen’s ties, shirts or vests.

Coordinating When Everyone is Mismatched

Sometimes, neither the bridesmaids or the groomsmen will match each other. Many couples are happy to let their wedding party follow loose guidelines, or else they purposely choose mismatched outfits. Getting everyone to coordinate in some way if you go this route can be even more difficult. One way to do it is to focus on colors. For example, if each bridesmaid has a different color for her dress, give each of the grooms a tie in a shade that matches one of the bridesmaids. Or give the bridesmaids pashminas in the same colors as the groomsmen. Of course, if you picked a wedding theme, the theme can bring everyone together.

If you love fashion, choosing outfits will be one of your favorite parts of wedding planning. Your groomsmen can all look great and still coordinate with the bride’s party.

Be Bold With Your Beard

Facial hair has always been a major part of men’s fashion. Before we get into the different styles that you can try out for yourself, let’s think about some of the rules of stylish and attractive facial hair. First, it needs to be well groomed. I know, it might seem like the stars have just let their facial hair grow wildly or not shaved in a couple of days, but every stylish look you see has been carefully groomed and maintained. Secondly, you have to be able to grow facial hair. Some people just can’t, and a patchy look is never going to look good. So, if you can only grow hair in certain areas or you only have a very weak hairline around your face, it’s probably best to just make sure you are shaving regularly. Finally, you have to keep that hair clean and tidy at all times. That’s easier said than done with a recent report revealing that beards can be as dirty as a toilet seat. Disgusting I know, but if it’s not enough to put you off growing one let’s look at the different styles.

The Rogue One

If you want one of the coolest, carefree facial hair styles, why not try to go unshaven. This isn’t really an accurate description because you do have to shave to get this style. You just need to be careful, shaving the bristles off while leaving a little stubble. If you achieve this correctly, you can make sure you look manly, perhaps a little unkempt and rather attractive. The most recent showing of this type of facial hair in the movies was in Fifty Shades Darker, and you can’t really go wrong aiming to look like Christian Grey or for that matter, Jamie Dornan.

The Hipster

The hipster is really just an ultra long beard, and the problem here is that it will take a while to grow. In fact, you may find that you have to shave more before you can let it grow, to ensure it grows at a faster rate. With electric razors for men, you can shave as much as possible and quickly increase the rate of your hair growth. Once you do this, you can spend a few weeks or even months growing that big bushy beard. After it’s grown, do with it as you please. You can tie it in a bow, let it hang free, just make sure you are keeping it clean. Be sure to buy oils for your beard to keep it looks healthy.

The Goatee

Goatees can be stylish if you grow them in the right way. But they do need to be carefully groomed. A single hair out of place and you start to look very much much like someone that can’t properly grow facial hair. Trimming a goatee into a style can take a lot of work so for this particular choice you may want to get a stylist. They’ll ensure that it looks fantastic and doesn’t appear as though you accidentally forgot to shave.

I hope you have fun selecting your own facial hair style and love the way it makes you look.

Taking More Striking Fashion Photos

As a fashion blogger, it’s obviously important that the images on your blog are of the highest possible quality, and that they really showcase the clothing you’re writing about. This is a lot more difficult to achieve than you might imagine! Luckily, if you’re just starting out, there are some things that will help to make fashion photos more striking right now. Check them out now:

Preparation is Everything

If you take only one thing from this post, let it be this. Preparation is the key to taking more striking fashion photos. Before you start shooting, you need to have some idea of the look you’re trying to achieve, whether you’re going for a retro snapshot or an avant-garde photograph.You need to have some idea which poses will show off the clothing best and what hair and makeup styles will complement the outfit well. If you work all of this out beforehand, it’ll be much easier to get the shots you want with minimum effort and no burnout.

Learn Photoshop

It cannot be stated enough how important it is to learn Photoshop if you want the images on your blog to stand out. Some people will say it’s cheating, but tweaking the light a bit or enhancing the color so that it’s a more accurate reflection of what you see with the naked eye just ensures that you show your readers the clothing as it really is. So, if you don’t already know photoshop, consider taking a class with Training Connection. Classes are available to anyone, so there’s no excuse not to learn. It will really help to transform your fashion photos from drab to fab.

Shoot from Every Angle

If you want to get the best shots, you have to be prepared to shoot from every conceivable angle. If you only ever shoot from the front, your photos will be flat and boring – you want them to be dynamic and interesting, so move around.

Direct Your Models

Image source

If you want your blog to be the best it can be, you can’t be afraid to give your models some direction. If you want the guy to invoke images of James Dean, tell him to have a bit more swagger about him, or if you think he lacks in personality, tell him to engage his facial muscles a bit more – it’s the only way to get the shots you really want.

Do Think Differently

If you want your images to stand out from the images on a hundred other fashion blogs, you need to be prepared to break the rules. You might know how you’re supposed to light a shot, but that doesn’t mean you should always do it that way. So, experiment with a higher contrast, lower light, and even Instagram filters, because you never know what amazing new technique you might stumble on.

Use Atypical Models

If you want your images to have an immediate impact, you might want to think about using ‘unusual models’ from atypical agencies like Anti-Agency,  such as guys with beer bellies instead of six-packs shorter than average guys and any guy who doesn’t fit the typical model mold will instantly attract the eye.

Taking more striking photos for your fashion blog isn’t easy, but if you’re willing to experiment and keep an open mind, you’ll get there in the end.

Life’s A Beach! Trendy Beach Wear To Try

There isn’t much left of summer to enjoy. So maybe it’s time to make the most of it while also keeping your style intact! So are you confused about how best to dress up when you’re at the beach? There are many different combinations that you can make the most of, so let’s have a look at some of the best combinations to help you enjoy the beach while also looking your best.

The Vest And Shorts Look

The days of 90s Baywatch are long behind us, but there’s still a lot to be said for the classic vest with denim shorts look. It’s a great way to show off if you’ve been working hard on that summer body, as the sleeveless vests can show off your arms but make sure that it’s tight, especially if you have a slender figure as the hanging nature of vests doesn’t show off your hard work.  This look is perfect for a casual stroll along the beach.

Smart Casual

If you’re going to a party on the beach and you need to make the most of men’s resort wear, especially if you are older than 25 and are trying to dress like a teenager. It doesn’t come off very well, especially on the beach! Try and find the most comfortable apparel. It’s always best to go for collars and tight fits for a bit of style, but you can use collars and casual shirts to your advantage, as you can try different looks such as wide open to show off your torso, but it also goes well with shorts or cut-off shorts.

Choosing Your Accessories

It goes without saying the sunglasses are a must. But pick the right one suitable for your head shape. Aviators are generally a good one to go for which show off that hint of cool. You may also want to try some accessories around your neck or on your arm, like beads which give off that hippie surfer look, but be sure to match it with the appropriate colors.

The Best Summer Colors

It’s always best to go for the light colors and opt for the blues and greens. But there are some colors that may suit your own specific build, orange is one that works very well during the summer. Be careful when going for darker colors like black, but while it can be a great choice for looking stylish at any time, day or night, it can be a bit uncomfortable if you have searing heat blazing down on you!

Footwear

For most guys flip flops, mainly Birkenstocks, is the only choice of footwear you can carry off with some style, but also you need something that is practical. Espadrilles are a good choice but are careful if you think you can’t carry them off. If you are looking for a smart casual style, loafers are a good shout, and the open toe sandal may work but is something that you should approach with caution. Canvas shoes are always a good option, and it suits the feet of most people, but if you need your feet to breathe, flip flops are the only way to go.

There’s not much left of summer, so get your summer style ready for the beach as quick as possible!
