Q: The groom wants to wear a vest and bow tie, in the more casual sense. Similar to the gentleman in this post. I like checkered shirts, but the women might be wearing these [striped skirts]. Too much? Thoughts, advice, help?? --Erica T.
A: Hey, Erica. This weekend, I wore these H&M gingham shorts with this Mossimo striped V-neck tee. A navy, white, and green striped woven belt and khaki brown canvas shoes finished off the look. So, you can probably guess what my advice is for your pattern play. Go for it!
Here are some other examples of grooms successfully mixing patterns. This groom has a striped vest, gingham shirt, and patterned bow tie.
