With countless articles available surrounding bridal fashions and dress trends each fashion season, articles detailing groom fashion trends are few and far between. Whether you are trying to channel your inner Wolf of Wall Street or James Bond on your big day, the wide expanse of trends in men's fashion allow for a number of suit or tuxedo options.
Tapping into men's fashion trends from 2014, grooms have started to consider more distinctive accessories. Whether it's a bold watch, large cuff links, or in many cases, a textured or patterned bow tie, flashy accessories bring more attention to the groom. Another talked about men's fashion trend is the variety in lapel style. Whether it is an understated notch lapel, flared peak lapel, or smooth, rounded shawl lapel, there is no standard choice anymore. Though there are some pros and cons to each lapel (shawl lapels can look odd on broad shouldered men), much of the lapel choice should depend on the cut and color of the suit itself.
A slate or midnight blue suit for compliments a romantic or vintage weddings, though this look requires a more tailored look ie with a slim cut jacket and trousers. Similarly, gray suits also benefit from a slim cut, though it is best to keep gray suits traditional in every other sense so as to not overwhelm the look. In terms of lapel color, contrast lapels are the up and coming trend: grey suits with black lapels, white suits with black lapels -- as long as the colors are understated, they can be paired together. For a chic or avant-garde wedding, it is best to keep the suit or tuxedo a classic black or white. While there's nothing wrong with a black suit, trends change, and whether it be accessories, suit color, lapel style or suit cut, there are numerous options to spice up your wedding day look!
