With awards season in full gear, we’re seeing many of Hollywood’s leading men dressing to the nines on the red carpet.  So, today we’re sharing the top tips on properly wearing a tuxedo.

One of our favorite guides to dressing for black tie comes from a 2012 New York Times article.

Tip #1: Shoulder fit is crucial

Tip #2: Put on a bowtie and be sure to know how to tie your own knot

Tip #3: Take a good measurement of your neck

Tip #4: In a Standard two-button suit, the break should be at your belly button

Tip #5: Shirts feel better with a taper

Tip #6: The half inch rule on the cuff is a must

Tip #7: Pant legs should have a modest break on the toe

Tip #8: No cuff on tuxedo trousers

Tip #9: Avoid lots of detail on the shoes

Tip #10: A simple steel watch with black leather strap is best

There are of course ways to show a bit of individuality or make a statement. One can be with the shoes you pair with the ensemble, like the Ralph Lauren loafers this wedding party chose. Of course, the bow tie is a great opportunity to try something different, and pocket squares becoming the hottest accessory- we like these by Ramply & Co.

One of my favorite photos to see after a wedding are the styled jewel shots that our talented photographers create for our clients. Feeling like a nice, pretty, and simple roundup of jewels is a perfect way to kick off this Monday Roundup…

Happy Monday!  Today I wanted to share one of my new favorite ideas- Chic Sketch! Chic Sketch is a live fashion illustration service and a new & innovative way to turn your wedding photos and guests into custom fashion sketches.

– Wedding Chic Sketch Kiosk with real fashion illustrators. It’s like a photo booth but better, because we sketch you and your guests!

– Pre Wedding and Post Wedding Sketches- On this note, I think having sketches of each of your bridesmaids done to ask them to be a bridesmaid would be such a sweet and personal idea.  And, using your sketch on to make custom notecards with your new married name after the wedding would be so great!

-They are also starting to make great gift items like cell phone covers and picture frames, which would also be a fabulous engagement gift for any friends getting married, hostess gift around the holidays, or wedding party gifts.
