Floral blazers are a staple look for any occasion. Kim Geronimo of The Street Sensei recreates these looks in a dapper way. Geronimo’s style consists of single-breasted blazers, turtlenecks, and minimalist accessories.

The creator of She Does Him, Allison Graham, keeps her style original and classy. This blue lightweight single-breasted suit will take you from ceremony to reception. Graham decided to make blue the base color and layer shades of red to complete the look.
To take your suit to the next level, try matching striped socks for your big day. Add a red boutonnière for a pop of color. This will help with creativity and provide extra flair.

Cris Domingo, La Garconniere
Cris Domingo of La Garconniere is an androgynous fashion blogger. Domingo values Italian suits because of the cuts and patterns. “A check suit has a vintage elegance to it that is both contemporary and traditional. This classic navy and green tartan suit is once again a smart option for sharp dressers,” Domingo tells Lysa Africa. A patterned three-piece suit for a formal wedding can be an option for an evening or daytime wedding and offers a conservative look on your big day.
