6 Wedding Suit Trends Set To Reign Supreme For 2017/2018

It is great to see grooms investing more time into getting their wedding day look just right. In the past, most men would settle on wearing a simple lounge suit, a good pair of shoes and a tailored shirt. And let´s be honest, an awful lot of grooms ended up looking not much different from their everyday office attire. Thankfully, the modern groom had embraced the fashion world’s latest suit trends and with every wedding season that passes, they are looking more dapper. As you can see here, there is a huge range of suit styles to choose from, offering grooms-to-be an individual look and the chance to add a flavour of their own personality to their wedding day style. We run through some of our favourite suit trends for 2017 below.

Make A Statement In Bold Brights

The vast majority of wedding suits are still grey or light blue. However, many menswear designers are beginning to accommodate the high-fashion city slicker. These catwalk trends include more vibrant hues of ink blue, burgundy and deep purple On the right man, these shades look fantastic and certainly boast that extra wow factor.

Suave Checkered Suits

2017 is officially the year of check, and it is set to stay in the spotlight for some time to come. If you aren’t brave enough to choose a daring statement print, a more subtle design featuring fainter lines and bigger squares can be great option to dip your toe in the water.

Ruggedly Handsome Tweed

Tweed has finally reclaimed its throne, and rightly so! Countryside chic has never been more on point, and thanks to slimmer fits and modern cuts, there isn’t a baggy trousers or oversized grandfather jacket in sight. Tweed is the perfect option for the autumn groom-to-be who is getting married in a quaint and dreamy rural setting. The fabric’s warm tones and texture will enhance your rustic theme, especially topped off with a feathered and twine boutonniere.

The Three Piece Still Reigns

A traditional yet timeless option, the three-piece suit will never go out of fashion. Exuding elegance, the three-piece need not be frowned upon as ‘boring’. Many grooms are now taking the chance to mix things up by adding a twist to their wedding day outfit. For example, by wearing a check waistcoat with a plain suit as you can see here. This is a great look that works well for most men.

Graduated Shades & Styles

Another emerging trend is for the best man and ushers to dress in the same colour as the groom, but wear a different style and slightly different shade. Each person will have a different height and body proportion, so it is often a good idea to choose a cut and style that will best suit each individual. The aim with this trend is to let the groom shine on his big day! Kick his accessories and suit a notch above the rest of the group to ensure he stands out in those all-important wedding photos.

Slim Fit

Narrow cuts are more popular than ever for autumn/winter 2017. It’s all about straight or tapered trousers and single breasted jackets sporting narrow lapels. This look is super sleek for the busy no-fuss groom planning an intimate yet alternative celebration in the heart of the city.
