Say Yes to the Suit! Up Your Groom’s Style with The Black Tux

Perfete / Tuesday July 10, 2018


When you think wedding style, your mind probably goes right to the dress, yes? And while we’re, without a doubt, huge proponents of making the most of your bridal fashion moment, we also believe that the moment should be shared with your hubby-to-be. This is, after all, the most photographed day of THEIR lives too. So let’s talk about groom style for a sec.

While we’ll never turn our backs on a classic black tuxedo (it’s a timeless staple for a reason), we’re absolutely LOVING all the color and personality in groom suits that have been popping up all over our feeds. I think we can attribute this to social media, a love of colorful images and celebrity influence. Modern groom attire takes a nod from red carpet style in a variety of ways: bold colors, unique patterns and tuxedos that create contrast, to name a few.

Looking for a more fashion-forward option?  Have some fun with accessories! Bow ties, pocket squares, socks, cuff links, shoes – there are SO many opportunities to add pops of color and unique details to the groom look. Also, we love the idea of a dress loafer over a traditional lace up dress shoe. Keep it modern, yes?
