In the lead up to the wedding, much of the talk is about the dress – but let’s not forget the importance and style of a winning suit.
The tough part is that once you consider the huge array of options in terms of cut, colour, accessories, and even the way you wear it (buttons done up or not), there are arguably more decisions for a groom to make about his suit than a bride must make about her dress.
A good way to get started is to think about current trends, so here are three trending suit fashions for 2016 for stylish grooms.
A boutonniere won’t be to the taste of every groom, which is why a pocket square can be a fantastic alternative that still adds a splash of colour to match the theme of the wedding or the bridal party.
Pocket squares come in all colours and patterns, so you can easily find something suitable for the wedding and your own style.
Say goodbye to the penguin suit (at least for now), because coloured suits are extremely on trend this season.
Navy is a big hit, while other non-black alternatives such as grey and brown are also in. You might even take it one step further and opt for a maroon or forest green suit for something different. This can be a great option for bright and fun summer weddings with tons of colour for those wedding snaps.
Vests, like many fashion trends, tend to come and go, but they are definitely in right now.
The third piece of a three-piece suit, a vest is versatile as you can wear it under the suit jacket for a stylish, sleek look, and you can remove the suit jacket on warmer days and still look formal with just the vest over your dress shirt.
