Top 5 Trends in Groom Fashion
The wedding day is no longer just about the bride. In recent times, grooms have become more involved in the wedding planning process as well as ensuring that they look debonair next to their princess brides. While there is the general belief that all the groom needs is a black tuxedo and a bowtie, groom fashion has evolved tremendously in recent times. Below are 5 trends in groom fashion we have observed in 2015.
1. Mismatched suits
Traditionally, grooms will wear complete two or three-piece suits, in the same color and texture. However, we have seen grooms begin to mix up the colors and patterns. The key is to ensure that the colors do not clash, unless of course you decide to ‘color block’ on your wedding.
2. Grooms in color
Like never before, grooms are embracing more color when it comes to their wedding suits. From green to red to purple, we have seen grooms opt for colors that will normally be considered as unconventional. They have however been able to pull off the looks.
3. Customized accessories
As part of grooms getting more involved in the wedding planning process, we have seen an increase in the number of grooms that go the extra mile to customize their outfits / accessories. This could be anything from adding a wedding hash tag to the suits inner lining or wearing cufflinks with the couples initials engraved.
4. Grooms and groomsmen in matching (or not matching) colored socks
This is a nice way of adding the ‘cool factor’ to the wedding. The groom and groomsmen can either decide to all wear the same color of socks, or different colors of the same socks pattern.
5. Button lapel flowers
In place of the traditional rose petals, grooms are now opting for the button lapel flowers. This is also a good way to match the groomsmen’s outfits with those of the bridesmaids as this can be customized to match the wedding color theme.
