Gents, if you are still tossing up what to wear, Neil Pitts sales consultant Andrew Vozar has all the trend tips.
"Ladies' fashion is always the leader and men's fashion follows suit," Mr Vozar said.
"With ladies' fashion this year there will be lots of colour orange, bright pinks, pretty much anything vibrant, so that'll follow through to men's shirting and also ties."
Mr Vozar said the classic black, grey and navy suits in a two piece or optional three piece were always elegant and also allowed the wearer to accessorise with colours whether in a shirt, tie or pocket handkerchief.
Hats are another accessory increasing in popularity, especially the classic trilby, which was the height of men's fashion in the 1920s.
