Casual men’s fashion is easy. Wearing the right kind of shirt and the right kind of jeans can be easily decided in just a few minutes. After all, you just need to pick what you think is appropriate for the day or which clothes fit you better in terms of personality and preferences. When it comes to one’s formal wear, however, the task is not as easy as it sounds. Why is that so? It’s because formal events require, apparently, a formal look that is non-existent when it comes to your casual wear. That’s what makes choosing formal men’s fashion wear difficult in the first place.
There’s the endless dilemma about which one to prioritize when it comes to men’s fashion formal wear: should one prioritize attractiveness over practicality, or should it be the other way around? Let us discuss what these two have in relation to men’s fashion especially in choosing formal wear.
Practicality in men’s fashion means that you should choose clothing that are appropriate not only for the event, but also for the venue itself? For example, should you wear three-piece vested suits even when you know that the venue is humid? Outdoor weddings, for example, are subject to weather. They could be hot when the sun is up and high, especially during the summer, so it’s obviously non-practical to wear these vested suits to outdoor weddings where it is likely that you’re going to be exposed to the sun. You might become a victim of heat stroke if you don’t put the temperature of the venue on account when choosing your suits or formal wear. That’s the practicality aspect in men’s fashion.
On the other hand, men’s fashion would be a bore when fashionability and elegance is not put into consideration. Otherwise, people would end up wearing clothes that are mismatched to formal events. That’s very awkward. You have to bear in mind that you would have to mix and match colors as well in formal fashion wear for men. Try to wear mismatched wardrobes to formal events and people would think that you don’t have an inkling of an idea about men’s fashion wear. While formal events do restrict your choices for clothes, it doesn’t mean that you cannot or should not exercise a fashion sense when selecting what to wear when you’re attending formal events.
So, which one should you take priority over formal men’s fashion wear? Should it be practicality or attractiveness? It’s best to be able to exercise balance: there should be a balance between both. You are free to pick what clothes you think makes you attractive, but at the same time you have to take into account comfort and, by extension, practicality as well.
