Inexpensive Options: Groomsmen Edition

So yesterday, we tackled the bridesmaids and found them stylish but affordable wedding attire. And today is all about the mens. We all love the boys and the way they look when they get all dressed up for an event. The best part of the whole "boys dressing as grown-ups" thing? Thanks to several mainstream stores taking on the suit industry – in today's world, groomsmen can affordably suit up.

Here's several outfit options that I have put together – all for under $100.00!

Option #1 (Total Cost of Outfit – $):

Old Navy Patterned Western Shirts in Red Plaid – $19.50:

A perfect combination of a cool pink-ish (it's actually red enough to pass muster with your more "macho" groomsmen) plaid over a neutral polo – a great beach wedding combo.

Old Navy Double-Pocket Cargo Shorts in American Twill – $25.00:

A beach classic. Cargo shorts are comfy and, when worn in a darker hue, totally tasteful.

Old Navy Striped Flip-Flops in New Black – $10.00:

A simple khaki blazer (worn open) + a bright green cotton shirt (with the sleeves rolled up slightly) + a cool blue surf tee = just awesome (and totally appropriate for a more informal church wedding).

Target Multi-Use Pocket Pant in Khaki – $19.99:

A simple khaki pant is a dream come true for any man. Not fussy and super easy to wear – they can use them afterwards for work or a date!

Option #3 (Total Cost of Outfit – $85.99):

J Crew Clayton Chino Jacket in Black – $49.99:

Suit Up! Even in the heat of summer, you can't miss with a cool black suit. Just keep the fabric choices on the lighter side…your 'mens will thank you for it.

Wal-Mart Shirt & Tie Box Set in Orange – $16.00:

You'd think that this orange and black combo would be a bit, well, Halloween-y. However, the lighter tones in the orange shirt make it less Jack-O-Lantern and more Mango Smoothie.
