Six of the key current looks in mens wedding fashion
Adventurous assembles, unconventional hats, sneakers and colorful suits are all in trend this season.
Surprisingly, these bold outfits are not just meant to be worn on the street; but also at weddings. Whether you’re a guest or the groom, today’s wedding fashion trends in men are centered on top-quality fabrics, tailored-made suits and custom clothes.
Here are 6 key trends to look after:
- Casual with a twist
Don’t worry, you won’t be wearing a hoodie at your wedding! The casual wedding outfit involves elegant, relaxed pieces. The groom should go for a crisp suit made of linen, a cotton shirt (lightly colored), a tie made of silk (cotton is an equally viable option) and a straw trilby. To feel even more comfortable, shoes can either be loafers or sneakers. The outfit works perfectly for men in their 20s and 30s. It is chic but qualitative, as well as comfortable. If you’re getting married on a hot summer day someplace on a beach, going casual (and even ditching the jacket from the suit) is the best things that you can do.
- Sharp tailoring
Sophisticated city looks are not tough to achieve. All you need to do is abide by a couple of guidelines. Go for a well fitting wool pinstripe suit in a darker color. To make yourself stand out, stripes are the key. Make sure the necktie is also striped to have some balance and create a statement. As for the shirt, an all-black model will bring out the suit and make you look elegant and sharp. If you’re the daring type of groom, match a grey suit with a pink shirt. Add glossy brogues made of leather, a trilby and braces to make the look complete.
- The all-white look
The all-white type of look is suitable for the summer. Linen and silk are the best fabrics because they don’t trap heat and they’re comfortable to wear. Keep things as simple as possible and go for clean lines. A single-breasted jacket with a single button is an ideal option. Wear the jacket with an all-white (or ivory) shirt and pair the outfit with white shoes. However, you can also add a splash of color to make yourself stand out. For example, you can choose a light purple hacker chief to match your outfit with your wedding décor. One word of advice: check the color of your bride’s wedding dress, and make sure the shades are identical.
- Classic groom
You can never go wrong with a classic type of outfit. In fact, classic wedding suits are the best when you can’t afford to slip up. A great combo is made of pinstripe trousers and a tailcoat. In the warm season, grey is the best; in cooler months, darker shades of black and brown might work better. Complement the outfit with a white cotton shirt, a waistcoat and a tastefully colored tie with a pin. Finish everything off with a pair of gloves, and you’re ready to walk the aisle and marry the woman of your dreams.
- Eclectic chic
Express a free-spirited personality with an outfit that screams opulence. An eclectic chic type of outfit allows you to break all the rules and choose clothing pieces that actually bring out your personal sense of style. Mix and match colorful suits, corky accessories and patterns, but try not take everything to the extremes. You still want to look chic not kitsch. Start with a pair a red Converse shoes and pair them with colorful shirt (deep marsala might be an excellent choice), and a casual jacket. Make a statement with a polka dot shirt, and ditch the tie. Go with the flow and choose striking colors to make your out pop.
- Classic James Bond & Proper Accessories
A classic James Bond wedding outfit exudes sheer elegance and high-class. The suit has to be tailored or custom-made; so you might want to have a separate budget for that. If you want quality, you need to be prepared to spend a few extra dollars. When it comes to deciding on a color, black works best. Go for black jackets and pants, white shirts, and bow tie. Invest in a quality pair of patent lace-up round-toed shoes, and you’re good to go.
To make your outfit attention-grabbing, you might want to accessorize it properly as well. Cufflinks, signet rings, and wristwatches are recommended men’s accessories. However, don’t wear them all at once, and try not to mix gold with silver. It’s quite alright to like bulky, oversized signet rings, but make sure the band is elegant and chic. Don’t go for the biggest signet on the market; rather go for a ring that looks tasteful. Sleek engravings or a nice etch that symbolizes the love you share for your future wife will do the trick. Pair the signet ring with a nice watch and your wedding outfit is complete!
