Wedding season is in full swing, but are you ready for it? Whether you are the lucky groom, in the wedding party, or have a couple of nuptials to attend as a guest, you want to look good AND feel good on the big day.
While there are many looks that we are going to discuss, there is one defining trend that we are seeing everywhere in men’s wedding fashion in 2018, and that is the fit of the formalwear. Instead of color or style (which are also very important to take into account), this year modern grooms and male wedding guests should focus on a flattering fit when it comes to their attire. In the past, the way a suit fit was ignored, but thankfully it is now a top priority on the 2018 trend list.
Philadelphia men’s suit specialists at Henry A. Davidsen want you to look your best this wedding season. Follow these tips below, and we guarantee you will be the best-dressed in the room (except for the bride, of course):
Rich fabrics like corduroy and velvet are two suit materials we are going to see a lot of in 2018. Velvet is making a comeback and crawling into men’s wardrobes across the nation as a very stylish option for evening attire. Match a velvet blazer with your favorite pair of slacks, and you got yourself a perfect wedding guest outfit. What if the wedding is during the day? No problem! Corduroy is a classic fabric that will never go out of style and should be your go-to suit for any day weddings you may be invited to this year.
Royal Blue All the Way
Move over navy, there is a new blue in town, and it’s taking over the color of suits this year! While navy is still a very classic option – it’s timeless, elegant, looks great against every skin tone – royal blue pops a little more, and has a little bit of a younger vibe. It’s perfect for grooms and guests alike, particularly for the warmer months.
If you want to really make a statement as a guest, opt for a blue jacket with checks and some contrasting trousers. A checkered jacket is casual, cheeky, and fits in well at almost any occasion, especially rustic weddings.
Year of the Bow Tie
Every man should own at least one formal bow tie to wear to black tie parties and other formal occasions. And when it comes to weddings, 2018 is the year of the bow tie. Toss the ties and grab yourself a sleek and sexy black bow tie or a fun and colorful bow tie (as long as the bride approves!)
