The Measurements – A well-tailored suit makes all the difference. Pro tip: you can now measure yourself more easily using measurement apps on your phone.
The Fabric – When it comes to suit fabric, either go classic or go bold and bright. Don't shy away from color – it's on trend for everyone, not just the women. Shades like green, pink, mustard and bright blue are surprisingly versatile.
The Shoes – When it comes to shoes, classics are best – the Nike Air Force Ones might not be the best fit for the big day. There are plenty of great options, but stick with something practical. Overly pointy or squared-toed shoes stand out in the wrong way.
The Accessories – From ties to pocket squares to cufflinks, accessories can be a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit.
Lean toward the classics, but know when to break the rules. Try to strike a balance between the tried-and-true styles and the distinctly you. If you feel you're going too much in either direction – too bland or too eccentric – an adjustment is in order. In Steamboat Springs, a cowboy hat often provides that personal touch, but it shades your face, so you may need to take it off for photographs.
