Does my outfit have to match my date?
Q: My girlfriend and I are attending a wedding together, do my clothes have to match what she’s wearing?
A: Great question. No, you don’t need to look “matchy-matchy,” but it would be a good idea for your looks to complement one another. First of all, make sure that you are dressed as formally as she is. If she’s wearing a floor length gown, you’re likely going to an upscale event that requires a black suit or tuxedo. If she’s wearing a sundress, maybe opt to not wear a tie or skip the suit jacket and wear suspenders.
One good way to tie in her look with yours is in your accessories. If she’s planning to wear a blush pink dress, consider wearing a pink tie or pocket square or a floral tie with pops of pink in it. As a wedding guest, don’t be afraid to wear a colored or patterned shirt or a bold watch.
