After a few years of friends’ and family members’ weddings gradually increasing in number, 2014 saw the mayhem reach a fever pitch. I had five weddings to attend between January and September 2014, which meant I had to pull together five distinct looks. (It would be just plain embarrassing to be spotted on social media wearing the same ensemble to to separate weddings within the same year).
I spent considerable time and effort a couple years ago shopping for a new suit, and I knew I didn’t want to do that again. The one I found was a light grey slim-fitting number from Zara, which still looks sharp (if I do say so myself). So I decided I’d stick with it, and wear it into the ground over 2014.
With that major decision made, it meant I could have fun with the rest of it. At the end of the day, matching a shirt, tie and accessories is relatively low-stress, particularly when you’re merely attending a wedding as a guest.
So how did I work that grey Zara suit five ways? Let’s take a look.
