While the groom should never try and upstage the bride, he’s definitely entitled to look his best as it’s his wedding day too! While a classic tux or suit will never go out of style, many grooms are incorporating new trends in menswear like fun and unexpected colors, accessories, and textures into their looks. Here are 5 trends we’re seeing on the most dashing grooms.
Unexpected jacket colors
For those who are willing to break the mold of the traditional black, grey or navy suit, there are a slew of new colors and textures to outfit the most stylish of grooms. Stick to seasonal hues like burgundy and hunter green in the fall/winter and paler colors in the spring/summer . Don’t be afraid to mix in texture with fabrics like velvet, brocade, linen, or even seersucker for a preppier groom.
A tie can completely transform a groom’s look, so many grooms these days are foregoing simple ties and incorporating fun prints and patterns into their ties, or wearing a stylish bowtie.
Instead of flowers, stylish grooms are taking cues from their wedding settings and wearing boutonnieres made of berries, wildflowers, foliage, succulents, and herbs like olives or rosemary.
Subtle differences between the groom and his groomsmen
Just like a bride will stand out from her bridesmaids, grooms might also want to have subtle differences from his groomsmen. This could mean wearing a different colored suit, wearing a different type or color of tie, or even having a fun and unique pocket square.
Patterned socks, cool sneakers, cowboy boots, funky wingtips, the options are endless for grooms to pick their shoes and socks that best represents their style on their wedding day!
