It is school formal season across Newcastle and the Hunter region and the team at Rundle Tailoring has been busy creating the ultimate formal looks for your end of year school celebration.
A well cut, slim fit suit is the most popular option in formal suits and this year blue remains popular, with black and grey also making a huge come back.
For guys looking for a more classic look, a blue or black suit with a white dress shirt and a black skinny tie or bowtie is the way to go. For those looking for a more individual look, paisley or patterned shirts are very much in trend this year.
Accessories are also a really important part of your formal look and coordinating the colour of your tie, bowtie or Pocket Square with your date’s outfit is a nice touch. Lapel pins, cuff links and tiepins are another way to add an element of individuality to your outfit and make for a special gift from a loved one to mark the occasion.
When it comes to footwear, we’ve got a good selection of men’s dress shoes. A good pair of black dress shoes will be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come. Black shoes are the safest bet and can be worn with black, grey or blue suits. Tan or brown dress shoes are also a trendy look and we recommend pairing with a blue suit.
Typically we are seeing more guys choosing to hire their school formal suit for year 10 formals, which is a good idea as at this age there is still some growing to be done. For those attending a year 12 formal, this is often a great opportunity to purchase your first suit. There will be plenty of opportunities to wear a quality, well-fitted suit in the near future for job interviews and more formal social occasions such as spring racing and graduation ceremonies.
