When talking about wedding attire, most people immediately think of gorgeous white wedding dresses. But weddings are about the bride and the groom. Let’s give those grooms some love and check out the latest groom’s wear trends to keep them looking sharp. We’ll have you both dressed to the nines for your big day. Power couple, here you come!
Groom’s Wear Trends for 2018-2019
Two-Toned Tuxedo Jackets
Your mind may automatically go to white jackets with black lapels (which also looks great), but if that’s not really your style, try a different color such as grey, deep green, or burgundy with black lapels for an extra sharp, formal look
If the bride wants to incorporate blush shades into the wedding theme, why not start with the groom’s suit?! If you aren’t ready to dive into pastel pink, try a subtle blush tone or go with a darker version to keep it more masculine. This color is more versatile than you might think and can be used in any season—it’s great alternative to white for a fall or winter wedding.
Think olive, rust, light sand, rich brown. You can go lighter for the warm months and darker for the cooler ones. These hues are trendy and add some color but still have a classic feel for grooms who only want to take a step or two out of the box. These shades look so handsome and flattering
Brighter Shades of Blue
Navy is a classic and still very much in style, but for something more vibrant and eye-catching, take it up a notch with cobalt or royal blue. These shades, although a little brighter than what we’re used to, complement just about any color scheme. They look great with greenery and any floral shade. These bright blues create striking portraits by making both the bride and groom stand out against the background. It also pairs very well with wedding-white or ivory—all eyes will be on the two of you!
We’ve been loving the checkered look that grooms are rocking lately. This look is great because you can decide how you want to pull it off—it’s not an all or nothing style. For a subtle pattern, stick with just a checked waistcoat/vest (both small and large checks look good on a vest). If you’re loving the look, try a checkered jacket. And if you want to own the look, try a whole suit! The grey suit with subtle checked pattern is our favorite, but we’ve also seen plenty of bolder versions, too.
If you’ve checked out this list and decided none of these styles are you, you can always go 007 with a tuxedo and black bowtie! That sexy look is always in. 😉
