Spring Wedding Style :: For Her & Him



FOR HIM: Bonobos 'The Foundation Slim' Cotton Linen Khaki Jacket // Brooks Brothers Seersucker Stripe Tie // Jack Spade Dipped Cufflinks // Mougin & Picquard for JCrew Watch // Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses // JCrew Socks // Brooks Brothers Pocket Square // Thomas Pink Slim Fit Dress Shirt // Trask 'Hudson' Spectator Shoe // Bonobos 'The Foundation Slim' Chambray Pants

I don't know about you, but our calendar is already packed full of weddings this year.  I find that spring weddings are my absolute favorite season in terms of fashion. I love the pastel color-palettes and the fact that the mild weather allows you a bit more styling freedom {it's hard to look put together when it's nearly 100 degrees outside}. So, when Bonobos contacted me and asked if I would be interested in styling one of their new suits for a spring wedding I jumped at the chance! {For those of you who don't know, Bonobos makes well-crafted menswear that focuses on a perfect fit. Their Straight Leg Washed Chinos are Ryan's absolutely favorite pair of pants in the world.}  

For the ladies I pulled together a look around a beautiful pearl gray sheath dress. The lace-overlay allows the colorful lining to delicately show through...pastel pink on top and lavender on bottom.  And for $158, it is a versatile piece that won't break the bank. Pair it with a retro topper coat, statement earrings, a quirky clutch, and a great gift for the newlyweds and you're good to go! For the gentlemen I designed the look around Bonobos' new suiting collection. I love the look of mix-and-match pieces, so I paired the classic cotton khaki jacket with a trendier chambray pant. Add a pop of color with orange accessories, a seriously awesome watch, some Ray-Bans, and voila! Happy wedding season!  More wedding looks...

Fine Print: This post was in no way pair for or sponsored by Bonobos, I simply love the brand and chose to collaborate due to the fact that I thought it was a natural fit with my Dreams in HD!

    now that i am in my late 30's (eek!) i go to maybe one wedding a year. but there was a time in my 20's where my dress inventory was nicely stocked up from all the weddings i attended! these are all beautiful picks! and i think you should (in addition to writing that travel book) consider a job as a mens stylist! love the mens picks especially. xo

  9. I have a couple of weddings coming up and funnily enough I've just bought a lace dress but with three quarter sleeves as it's still cool here. I love the pearl grey colour here.
