INFASHIONITY was asked by swiss wedding magazine “SE MARIER” to write an article for the men’s section. Topic: how to dress as a guest.
Read all about this exciting opportunity below.
Can you hear the church bells ringing ? It’s wedding season !
I am so thrilled to share this post with you today. As you may have noticed if you visit the blog often, on top of sharing visual content of my looks, I also enjoy writing. I’ve had the chance to share with you some fashion show reviews, or introduce you to some new brands. For the first time, I’ve been asked to write for a magazine. A real, serious, printed magazine. Whan an honor! I was beyond excited when SeMarier, the leading swiss publication about wedding, asked me to be a part of their new issue. The opportunity couldn’t have arisen at a better time, as in my personal life it litteraly WAS wedding season!
No, not mine ! But my sister’s ! Therefore, it was really easy for me to write a piece about how to dress up as a male guest to a wedding!
I shot this look exclusively for the magazine, and it is actually what I wore to church for my sister’s wedding celebration.

A CHIC GUEST
If you can’t read french, here is a little sumary of the tips I provided in the article.
Basically, you want to make sure that your outfit is in line with the style of the wedding. Your first and best source of information is therefore the wedding invitation! It will give you details about the location, timing, etc.. to be used as tips on how you should dress.
You want to make sure you’re not “more” dressed up than the groom, so if you’re close enough, you may want to ask him what kind of suit he’ll be wearing.
Then, find a suit that is perfectly tailored to your measurements, don’t go for something too excentric, however you can still have fun and add sophisticated touches with accessories. A full on tuxedo should be reserved for the dinner and party.
For my look, I went for a coordinated blazer and trousers. To give the look a modern twist, I chose this skinny tie. (Whole look : Calvin Klein).
Blazer, trousers, tie – Calvin Klein
Watch – Piaget Altiplano
Eyewear – Dior So real
I hope you enjoyed this article.
Thanks again to the whole SeMarier team for this opportunity!
