How To Create Multiple Looks From One Suit

Yep, it’s that time of year again when the invitations to weddings and garden parties start coming in. If you’re lucky you may even have had an invite to the long anticipated Royal Wedding!

Whatever the occasion it’s a great opportunity to get out your glad rags and look the business. But what if you’ve got multiple events coming up in a short space of time and many of the guests are likely to be the same?

As a woman you’ve probably got a host of different dresses or outfits that you can interchange between events. But as a man you may only have a couple of suits or jackets that you tend to wear over and over.

So what are you going to do? You don’t want to go out looking exactly the same each time.

Of course not, and here’s where the use of accessories really comes in handy.

With a simple change of shirt, accompanied by a number of well-chosen accessories, you can quickly and cost effectively elevate your outfit and change your look every time.

From matching items, to wearing pieces that highlight your personality, whatever look you’re trying to achieve, accessories are a fun way of adding individuality and uniqueness to your style.

If you’re looking for inspiration we’ve rounded up some ideas so you can RSVP in style.
