Is there anything better than a man in a great suit? We’ve had the pleasure of trawling through our male style archives to show you this year’s top trends and have found the perfect inspiration to make sure that your groom is suited and booted to perfection. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it…
Tweed – Tweed has been a big hit for groom’s wear over the past few years. Still a totally classic choice, yet more relaxed and quirky than your standard suit. Ireland is home to some of the best tweeds in the world, so take advantage of the alternative choices which can be found right on your doorstep!
Mismatch – We’ve seen mismatched bridesmaids becoming more and more popular in recent years, so what’s stopping the boys from following suit? We love this effortless and relaxed look which would be the perfect choice for a whimsical, laid back wedding.
Colour – Is your groom not afraid to think outside the box? In that case, a coloured suit is calling his name! There are so many effortlessly cool options to choose from which will help to incorporate more colour into your day. We applaud this brave groom – This forest green option is totally awesome.
Tartan – Like the idea of tartan but not brave enough for a kilt? This suit is the perfect alternative. Tartan can be a really different, yet smart option for a groom and can allow the man in your life to subtly stand out from crowd.
Relaxed – Maybe your husband to be isn’t really a smart suit kind of guy? This relaxed option could be the answer to your prayers! While it is still suitable wedding attire, your groom will feel more like himself with an outfit like this one. Style this up with some laid back loafers or some cool converse to complete the look.
Classic Tux – Sometimes it’s hard to beat a timeless classic. A black tie suit goes a long way in terms of style and is one that will never date. The key to pulling off this look will be the fit of the suit, and if you get that right then the suit will do the talking for itself.
Geek Chic – Bow ties and braces are the number one go to accessories to create the geek chic look for any groom. Team these with a crisp white shirt and some tailored trousers to make sure your groom is bang on trend.
Velvet – We have seen some dapper velvet suits on the red carpet recently, with the likes of Eddie Redmayne and Douglas Booth rocking this look. If your man isn’t sold with a full velvet suit, a subtle bow tie can also be very fashion forward, without asking your groom to step too far from his comfort zone.
Vintage – The vintage trend has been popping up in a number of weddings over the past few years and doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon! We should thank the people over at Liberty of London for this one, as their beautiful fabrics are growing ever popular in the wedding industry with brides up and down the country snapping up their quirky bow-ties to create the perfect vintage look.
English Classic – Last but most definitely not least is the English Classic look. We’re talking well cut suits with crisp white shirts and a timeless, classic tie. This trend is another one which is unlikely to date and has been popular for many years. In order to keep this look modern, pay particular attention to the finer details such as the lining of the suit, tie pins, pocket squares and smart cufflinks – These finishing touches will allow the groom to cater this look to his own style.
What will your groom be wearing on the big day? We’d love to know, we’re nosey like that!
