Here’s What You Should Wear to Every Spring Wedding

Spring weddings are your seasonal reminder that as winter starts to wane and the weather takes a tentative turn towards the slightly bearable, you still have no significant other to share any of it with. The only relationship I’m in is with a painstakingly crafted piece of Italian tailoring, because you bet your ass it hugs the subtle contours of my body way better than any human being ever could! (Screams internally.) The only thing I object to is the absolute lack of drip at this little shindig, am I right?! Spring weddings, man.

This time, pull up to the ceremony in an outfit that fully upstages the groom and no one will notice you showed up yet again sans plus one, you sad, lonely soul. Booze up, bust a move, and then subsequently break down completely in the corner and contemplate where you went wrong. This time it’ll be different, I promise. This time you’re coming through fitted.

Merino Wool & Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater

The Kooples bloomingdales.com

Worried about wearing a tie again after so much time sticking strictly to sweats? A silk knit style is as timeless as it gets.
