Nausheen Shah is a celebrity stylist who knows what it takes to make Hollywood’s leading men look their best. Shah is the creative genius behind the looks of well-known people like Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones and Eternals. Shah’s clients set the standard for effortless polish on the red carpet and even beyond, thanks to her formal design training and experienced editorial eye. Here, Shah talks about how to dress for beach weddings as the busy season approaches.

Keep it Light

Shah says that for summer parties, especially for beach weddings, you should choose fabrics and colors that won’t make you feel too heavy. She says that suits should be made of breathable fabrics like linen and come in lighter colors like beige, brown, and blue.

If you want to go further with your look, you could try layering textures and colors from different palettes that go well together.  “I love mixing mood board colors like different shades of brown or different shades of blue but keeping it light and easy. ”

Shah says that when it comes to accessories, you should think about the place where the event is taking place. She laughs and says, „If it’s a beach, I don’t know if you’re wearing shoes.” Shah talks about how the leaves on palm trees change over time. With time, the leaves turn brown and are used to make things like raffia, which has a rough texture. “If you can, find a cool raffia slipper, slide, or something to play with the elements.”  Espadrilles and loafers are good classics to start with.

Make it fit you

“If your clothing is not tailored to you, then you will never look good. When it comes to suiting, it rarely is made for anyone and you have to find a tailor.”, she said. Shah says that even if you find the unicorn brand that fits you right off the rack, you shouldn’t be upset if your reality is very different.

On the red carpet, it’s easy to spot a well-fitting suit, but it might be harder to do so in a store or even in your own home. “Don’t be afraid of it being slightly fitted. Make sure your jacket curves with your body. You want to put it on and have it fit like a glove.”

Shah says, „Fit is everything.”

Key Is Confidence

Shah says there are two important things to think about when dressing for an event: the setting of the event and your own style. If you’re not sure what to wear, you can always ask the host or the place where the event is taking place.

In the end, it’s up to you to decide what to wear, as long as it fits the occasion and shows off your true self. As simple as it sounds, the best way to look your best is to feel good.
