From Suits to Separates: What to Wear to a Spring Wedding For Men

Spring Wedding

As wedding season looms, it's time to get prepared by looking at the SS23 tailoring trends we can expect to see. Whether you're the groom, wedding guest, or heading to another type of special occasion, checking out this season's trends is the perfect way to incorporate something new if you're stuck for inspiration. Below, our experts break down this season's suiting trends.


In terms of trending colours for this season's weddings, green is most certainly on the up. Traditionally reserved for heritage-inspired rustic tweed suits, green has had a modern refresh for SS23, with shades that perfectly reflect green's symbolic representation of new beginnings – mirroring not only the spring season, but a symbolic message for grooms as they enter married life. Not sold on an all-green ensemble? Tie this trending colour into your look via everything from your waistcoat, to , ties, or go with a standalone green blazer and keep the rest of your look neutral.

Sticking with the spring palette, cream and beige suiting will return as the weather brightens up, as will light grey and pale blue. We can expect to see the classics, such as pale blue shirts and light grey suits, but now's the time to be experimental with the spring colour palette – try adding a contrasting cream waistcoat with a light blue suit, or mix and match a pale blue jacket with cream suit trousers and finish with opulent loafers for preppy style.


Linen is back in, but changeable spring temperatures are something to bear in mind if the wedding will involve a lot of time outside. If this is the case, choose a luxe wool suit – this elegant fabric is always on-trend, and with its temperature regulating properties you'll stay cool and comfortable, whatever the spring climate throws at you.

If you're working with a more laidback dress code, chinos are a great option in place of suit trousers, offering a huge variety of colour options, as well as a comfortable construction and variety of fits. Likewise, if there's room in the dress code to switch up your shirt then tap into this season's denim shirt trend and go for a lightweight chambray under a complimentary suit jacket – offering a nod to Western-inspired dressing which will be making a resurgence in 2023. A knitted polo is another fresh take on shirting that can give your wedding look Mod-inspired edge, and keep you insulated. Steer clear of a black knitted polo and go for brighter colourways – just ensure your suit jacket is sharp and neutral to keep this combo streamlined and formal.

Fits & Construction

Double-breasted suits are here to stay in 2023, with oversized lapels and strong shoulders feeding into the resurgence in 80s-inspired menswear. Choose a double-breasted suit in a trending navy colourway for a look that'll see you through spring and beyond, or turn heads in a pure wool double breasted suit in a checked design – stylish yet versatile enough to be your go-to for all of life's special occasions.

The v-neck tee was a high-fashion favourite on SS23 runways, and for weddings with a more relaxed dress code it could be the perfect replacement for the classic shirt beneath your blazer. Looking for something more insulating? Go for a v-neck merino knit over a tie-less shirt to hit the trend bang on, and keep your look luxe yet laidback.

Accessories & Footwear

Of course, the quintessential spring accessory to top off your tailoring is a floral tie. For SS23, choose light, fresh colourways that reflect the natural colour palette of the season; pale blue, cream, pale pink, even green, and switch up your style with a variety of takes on florals, such as silk paisley ties.

When it comes to footwear, keep practicality in mind if you'll be spending any time outside during the wedding. To hit this season's trends, go for heritage-inspired tan leather – smart boots are a great option if they coordinate well with your suit. You could go for a colourful suede desert boot, too, as a way of adding a pop of colour to your look – just be sure to add a suede protector to keep them looking flawless. Loafers are another ideal option as the weather warms up, and this year they're a firm favourite amongst menswear trendsetters – choose rich black leather, opulent burgundy, or even suede, to top off your wedding look with trending yet timeless elegance.
