Earlier this summer, when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez hit the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, the actor and director broke out a white dinner jacket (from his closet, per Lopez’s newsletter) for the festivities. Over the weekend, as they celebrated their union with a major ceremony, Affleck returned to his trusted formula. This time, however, he dialed in a new look from Ralph Lauren: a tuxedo consisting of a single-button cream dinner jacket with a peak lapel, black bow tie, white piqué bib shirt, black double-pleated trousers and black patent leather shoes.
There are no hard and fast rules for a wedding outfit. But you will never be unhappy if you go classic and timeless – eternal, just like your commitment. And it’s hard to get more timeless than a white dinner jacket with pleated trousers and patent leather shoes. (Bonus points for matching your bride like Ben Affleck did: Lopez wore an array of dresses from Ralph Lauren.) The lesson? Great style, like great love, never goes out of style.
