What men should wear to weddings: lessons from six celebrities – in pictures

Some of us are born with style. Others, like Harry Styles, look to Pete Doherty for guidance, which probably explains his adventurous ensemble, a sort of neo-goth catch-all, complete with fedora, skull scarf and open black shirt, as seen at the wedding of bandmate Louis Tomlinson’s mother’s wedding last weekend. It would be fine except a) it’s not a funeral and b) everyone else wore a suit.

In a marked move away from his usual workwear – James Righton is the singer in Klaxons, a band who pioneered mid-noughties nu-rave and remain wholly unafraid of metallics – Keira Knightley’s now-husband went for a smart, bespoke navy suit probably created by the Chanel atelier for their low-key wedding in Mazan, France. This being 2013, Rayban Wayfarers were obligatory on both parties.

“What to wear if you’re marrying the world’s most stylish woman” might be the sort of question that would keep most men either awake or unmarried. Not Jamie Hince, who stuck to his usual theme – skinny – via a double-breasted lapel jacket, skinny wool trousers, striped shirt and leather boots, all by Yves Saint Laurent’s then designer Stefano Pilati, also present at the wedding – presumably in case anyone’s tie came loose.

Jude Law spends much of his life looking like he has been transplanted from the Neapolitan Riviera, so it seems fitting that he chose a navy linen suit, white T-shirt and – shock – no tie to Kate Moss and Jamie Hince’s wedding in Gloucestershire.

Bobby Gillespie

Say what you want about Bobby Gillespie (and heavens know they do) but a man who matches his suit to his bride’s – which he did at their wedding in 2006 choosing a cream and pink floral suit by McQueen to mirror stylist Katy England’s candy-stripe dress – is a real man.

David Mitchell

It seems strange that David Mitchell’s grey morning suit from his wedding to Victoria Coren in 2012 feels traditional, but there we go. On second glance, the cream buttonhole, matchy matchy waistcoats, generic brogues … it all looks borderline Normcore. How progressive. Take that, Styles.
