My husband insists on wearing a bright yellow shirt with an orange bow tie to a summer/outdoor wedding this weekend. It doesn't look bad but I don't want him to look clownish...thoughts? (his pants are navy blue)
bright yellow shirt/orange bow tie?
Pictures of the items or him wearing the items would be helpful. I personally like bold fashion, but this sounds like a really bad idea. I'm not sure who is getting married, but the focus should be on the people getting married. I think wearing anything that would take the focus off of them is not a good idea. Style wise, I would highly recommend khaki or stone colored pants. The navy would create too much contrast with the yellow shirt.
If the tie is bright orange (as opposed to rusts), I'd stay away from a yellow shirt body. That hue of tie looks best with shirts whose bodies appear white or ice blue. Like this, for example:
are easier to pair with a wider range of hues in the shirt, such as sky blue, cream, or a yellow/white pencil stripe.
