PERTH 2022 Trends in Grooms Fashion
Long gone are the days where grooms are restricted by monochromatic colours and rigid styles. Embracing a range of different cuts, colours and materials, there has never been a more exciting time for grooms fashion. Here, the team at Western Australia Wedding & Bride Summer Expo delves into the exciting realm of mens fashion as we reveal the grooms fashion trends that we can expect to see in 2022.
COLOURS OF THE WIND
We can expect to see a lot more experimentation with colours in 2022. Grey, navy blue and crisp black suits have remained the figureheads of tuxedo colours for decades – perhaps even millennia – but no more. Colourful suits have been continuing to gain in momentum over the past decade within men’s fashion and have recently bridged the gap to be warmly welcomed into grooms fashion.
Aided by a range of different materials, opting for a colourful suit is an excellent way to deviate from tradition and embrace your personality on a day that is innately personal. As we move into summer, lighter tones tend to favour warmer weather and linen suits can offer a sophisticated and effortless elegance. Looking past summer towards the cooler winter months, darker shades are favourable – though this doesn’t mean falling back on the standard colours – consider deep reds, burgundies and purples to add a touch of colour to your ensemble.
TAILORED TO YOU
Too often have men tragically fallen victim to an ill-fitting suit. While there are many contributing factors that will influence your overall appearance none are as important as the cut of your suit. On such an important day, it is only natural that you will want to look and feel your best. One surefire way to guarantee this is to get your suit tailored. Whether you are wanting a bespoke suit made for you or seeking a suit that needs adjustments, visiting a tailor is an excellent way to make sure that your suit fits you perfectly, so you are confident and comfortable.
As the saying goes, fortune favours the bold and the same can be said to those who seek to incorporate daring accessories into their wedding day ensemble. It is no secret that the right accessories can really make your outfit pop. From your shoes to your belt and even your watch, knowing which items to pair with your ensemble will ensure you are looking smart from dusk till dawn. Adding a boutonniere that matched the floral arrangements on the day is an excellent way to centre your outfit and tie it into the wedding’s overall theme.
Something as simple as forgoing a tie can make that point of difference to the overall look and if you are opting for a light linen suit, or a more relaxed look, this more casual alteration can really elevate your overall appearance and tie everything together. Suspenders in a casual setting are also an excellent option to add a point of interest without detracting from your ensemble. A crisp white pocket square looks sensational on a dark presidential suit. Whatever you decide, be sure to carefully consider each element to ensure that it works overall and you will be well on your way to looking and feeling like a million bucks.
PRINTS AND PATTERNS
We love prints. Whether it is a classy and restrained microprint or a playful paisley, prints are an excellent vessel for adding colour and interest without being overwhelming. When imagining prints and patterns, often bold looks will spring to mind but this doesn’t always have to be the case. Classic looks such as tweed, herringbone and checks are all examples of patterns that need not be ostentatious. Whether you are looking for a more dramatic floral print or a classic pinstripe, we predict that prints and patterns will be one of the major trends to look out for in 2022.
