Suits you sir! For a serious injection of smooth summer style (shaken not stirred) we love these hot menswear trends straight off the catwalk…

We’re seeing a shift towards more formal wedding attire for the new year, with grooms kitted out in full tuxedos for glamorous black tie weddings – think bow ties, cummerbunds and patent leather shoes. It doesn’t have to be black, either! White tuxedo jackets work well for summer weddings, and we love deep jewel tones for autumn and winter events.
Checked suits were popular in 2017, and this wearable trend shows no sign of slowing this year! A checked suit is a perfect fit for a more rustic wedding theme, because it pairs well with tweed and wool for added texture. The pattern can be as bold or subtle as your groom likes, or you can pair a checked waistcoat with a plain suit for an on-trend twist on a classic.
We’re expecting this fun print to appear in more and more weddings this year, whether it’s on ties and bow ties, pocket squares or even the linings of suits. You can opt for the traditional rich colouring, which usually includes orange, blue, gold or burgundy shades, or go for a modern pastel paisley for a more subtle look.
Pastels have long been popular with bridesmaids and even brides (blush bridal gowns, anyone?), and now the grooms are getting in on the trend, too. Pastel blues, beiges and even pinks look fantastic on spring and summer grooms, and will work particularly well if you’re planning a destination wedding. We love this uber-cool and fresh summer suit from allurebridals.com/category/alluremen.
Set to be the hottest suit shade for 2018, royal blue is a brighter take on traditional navy that goes with practically any wedding colour scheme. We particularly love it for summer weddings, paired with pastel shades or popping brights, but it also works well with black for any season.
