The groom is the sartorial as well as the romantic counterpart to his partner, which means he too should be going the extra mile to look as striking as possible on the big day. From choices of suit (Tux? Three-piece? No suit?) to the accessories (Tie vs bowtie vs no tie), settling on decisions about each component can be tricky. To help any groom-to-be make choices that will leave him feeling impeccably dressed on his wedding day, we put together these five key tips on how to make a statement based on the best groom fashion trends of the year.

It’s a rule of thumb that’s always upheld in interior design and architecture, but one onto which grooms are only cottoning on in recent times: always think about the textures in your ensemble. Textures are what transform an outfit from excellent to downright enviable; they will keep things from looking flat in real life and in the photography. This is why a huge trend in groomswear is the use of texture in everything from entire suits to accessories - corduroy, tweed, wool, linens and velvet which is currently trending due to its luxurious aesthetic.

Grooms who find the solid colour suit a little overdone can go for a patterned suit to stand out from the crowd on the big day. There is a large variety of styles available, from the more traditional to the wild (borderline crazy). If you don’t want to go for the full patterned suit, but still want to incorporate this playful element into your outfit, opt for patterned accessories instead.

When it comes to accessories, happy-go-lucky sock prints just won’t cut it. The most dapper grooms of 2018 are making the most of every opportunity for personalisation and style savvy detailing - ties and pocket squares with unique prints, tie clips with a bit of personality, vintage watches, hats that bring a bohemian flair, lapel flowers and boutonnières… and if your groom is lacking anything, fortunately, an accessory makes for a very sweet and thoughtful on-the-day gift.

They’ve never gone out of style for men who take their attire seriously, but bow ties are experiencing a real renaissance in groomswear. Whether you opt for a classic black or white bow tie, or something more casual and fun, it’ll always be a charming statement that conveys your personality via the colour(s) and pattern you choose. And if you want something matching for your groomsmen, bow ties are an aesthetically smarter choice than ties as you won’t run the risk of looking collectively sloppy (the length of a tie needs to be absolutely perfect for each member of the group, and if you’ve gone for mismatched suits but matching ties, the width of the tie needs to be chosen in proportion to the lapel width).

Keep things exciting but casual with suit separates for a modern outdoor, bohemian, or vintage wedding. Separates are a no-fuss way to rise to the occasion without looking like a relic. They give you the freedom to trial a few interesting combinations, for comfort, aesthetic, or just for fun. In the featured image, the attire reflects a perfectly appropriate look for an outdoor summer wedding. The pants are light and comfortable and subtly tie into the complete look. If your wedding doesn’t have a monochrome palette, then a suit made up of separates might be the perfect way to match your suit to the look of the wedding.
