A Gentleman’s Guide To Looking Smart At Every Kind Of Wedding – Business Insider

Wedding invitations are cluttering everyone’s social calendar right now as we move into prime wedding season.

But dressing for summer weddings can be a challenge: You can’t wear that tux to your friend’s beach wedding or a seersucker suit to a black tie affair.

Toby Bateman, the Buying Director at online menswear retailer MR PORTER, answered all of our summer wedding style questions.

For more on how to dress for a summer wedding, you can also check out the wedding style section at MR PORTER.

From what to wear at the beach to deciding which tie is best, here is your definitive wedding style guide.

“For a city wedding, I tend to keep my suit choice fairly sober — one that works as a summer business uniform in dark blue or a mid-grey wool that I then freshen up a bit with shoes and accessories,” Bateman says.

“The shirt should be classic in a crisp white or pale blue poplin and teamed with a smartly polished leather lace up shoe — oxford or derby, not a brogue.”

“Add a fresh colored plain or neatly patterned tie and a pocket square, neatly folded or with a flourish, to complete the look,” he advises. (See how to perfectly fold your pocket square here.)

Importance of Natural Leadership Style

We are surrounded by a variety of books and articles on the topic of leadership. Many have highlighted benefits of studying the behavior of high-impact people – CEOs, Presidents, and/or people from your own organization – in building your own leadership capabilities.

While I enjoy reading and learning new tactics, I firmly believe that benefits of mimicking effective leaders are short-term, especially if their style is different than your natural leadership style. Different people practice leadership in different ways due to different perspectives, priorities, values, and preferences. Additionally, the leadership frame may change based on the context of the situation.

Most profound and practical way to be an effective leader is to build upon basic natural leadership style and to draw on strengths.
