Forget the plain black tuxedos. These days, grooms are bringing something new to their looks – style. The traditional penguin suit has made way for cooler, modern and more personalized fashions. We asked Justin Delaney, the founder of online tux rental company Menguin to pick out 4 cool groom looks that are sure to make a statement.
4 Cool Groom Looks That Make a Statement
Suspenders have come back into fashion in a big way for guys. This vintage-made-modern option adds a touch of style to the groom’s look, while also adding the much appreciated function of keeping his pants up. Black suspenders are always a great option, or you can find them in pretty much any color. Red, yellow, even blue suspenders – it’s all about adding some personality to the groom’s look.
The Three-Piece Suit
Suspenders aren’t the only throwback making a comeback. The three-piece suit may have started its reemergence among the hipster crowd, but now it’s the perfect way for even the most traditional guys to add a cool accessory to their wedding day style. Plus, the vest ensures the groom still looks fashionable if he takes off his jacket and rolls up his sleeves, making the three-piece suit a great option for summer weddings.
The Blue Tuxedo
Who says the tuxedo has to be black? If you still want the formality of a tux but prefer the not-so-traditional vibe, you can’t do much better than a blue tux. It’s unexpected. It’s stylish without looking like you’re trying too hard. It’s different without stepping too far outside the box. And really. It just looks good.
Ok, I know I just said you can do so much more than the typical black tuxedo. But we’re not talking about your dad’s boxy black tux from the 80’s (which to dad’s credit, was totally in fashion back then). Leave the cummerbund in the 80’s and opt for a sleeker, more slim-fitting black tuxedo. Think James Bond. It doesn’t get much cooler than that.
