oceanside wedding & the perfect white trouser

{oceanside wedding} via chevrons & éclairs
Embracing a summer color palette may be slightly difficult when you’re looking to dress for a formal setting. One that is an oceanside wedding or among the lakefront almost necessitates nautical blue hues and whites. And so varied shades of blues with whites embedded within it and varied textures, like cottons and italian silks, that translate well from a daytime wedding through the evening well into the reception. The perfect outfit that inevitably is an ode to waterfront summer weddings.

{the perfect white trouser}
When shopping for white trousers or even shorts there are three rules to keep in mind. First, do make sure it’s well fitted. Stick to something slim fit that leaves a subtle break at the ankle. Loose fit white trousers tend to look sloppy as they don’t have that natural silhouette look darker trousers have. Second, use it as a neutral. Instead of grays and blues you can experiment with other colors. Darker, less pungent colors work well like greens and so do textures like stripes, gingham and florals. Finally, enjoy the versatility of a white trouser. They can be worn anywhere from a beer garden to your Sunday visits and a wedding of course.
