Let's Hear it for the Boys! Tuxedo Trends for Today's Grooms
Once upon a time, grooms were confined to donning a full dress tux with tails and a bow tie. And while that’s certainly a dashing option that will look great on any guy, today’s grooms have lots more flexibility with their wedding day wardrobe.
In light of changing wedding day trends, let’s take a look at some of the ways your guy (and his guys) can complement the style of your wedding while remaining comfortable, confident, and, let’s face it, every guy wants to look cool!
Grey is the New Black
Greys range from ash to slate, pewter to charcoal, meaning you can fine-tune your man’s palette to match the formality of your wedding. Pictured above, medium-grey tuxedos fit perfectly with an elegant daytime affair. Choose darker shades or opt for a metallic sheen for an evening or more formal event.
When the sun is still out, you’re allowed to loosen up on the rules. This couple opted to keep things light and airy, but just as classy, with a beige tuxedo, white shoes, and a pop of color to match her bouquet and keep him from looking washed out.
If you’re a really laid-back couple, a beige, navy, or grey suit will also do. Properly fitted and accented with your wedding colors, your guy can easily pull off classy and casual.
Check out these dapper dudes! Vintage, rustic, shabby-chic — lots of couples are leaning toward throwback styles for a sense of fun and familiarity. Suspenders and brightly patterned bow ties are the perfect way to add a quirky yet subtle twist, and a great way to set apart groomsmen and ring bearers.
