Are you looking for ways to make you and your groomsmen’s fashion stand out while you’re up at the alter? Do you want a few tips on how to look more stylish to impress your future wife? If so, then you need to read up on the top men’s wedding fashion trends for 2021.
Last year, thousands of weddings were put on hold due to the pandemic. This year, people are coming out of the gates and creating wedding memories that last forever. Your fashion is a huge part of that!
See below for several types of men’s wedding fashion trends that you should know about for this year.
1. Knitted Ties
Imagine your lovely grandmother hand-knitted a tie for you to wear to your high school prom. That’s essentially what we’re talking about, here.
Gone are the days of the standard sleek and shiny ties that you get from tux rental companies. These days, grooms are looking to make a more unique impression with the tie that they wear.
Enter the knitted tie—one of the hottest men’s wedding fashion trends right now. We were just joking about having grandma knit one for you earlier. You’ll want to take the time to find the right knitted tie for your wedding.
Obviously, the color needs to be on theme. However, there are several other factors you’ll want to consider, such as:
- Finding the right width of the tie
- How you prefer to tie the knot (and whether the tie is long enough to do so)
- The collar you’ll be wearing
- The flatness of the tie (this is a good thing)
- Finding one that fits your personality
Some grooms choose to be the only ones wearing a knitted tie, to stand out a bit more from their groomsmen. Others enjoy purchasing the same tie for all the guys. Be sure to learn here for a more in-depth look at all the factors we just listed.
2. Traditional Suave
Look, as revolutionary as the wedding fashion industry has become in the past few years—with hipsters leading the way—there are some out there that only want traditional.
Some grooms have always wanted to feel like James Bond when they throw on the tux they’ll wear at the alter. The best part about that? Traditional wedding fashion never goes out of style.
That said, the entire traditional theme is making a huge comeback. Some brides and grooms are organizing their weddings as a black-tie affair.
Looking to make yourself look like you just hopped out of Casino Royale or Skyfall? If so, then complete the look with a black tux and a black bow-tie to boot.
If you want to be a bit bolder, you can switch out the black tux for a white tux, then wear a black bow-tie and black pants to balance out the look (and not direct attention from the bride).
For those of you that want to add a bit of color, navy tuxes are always a great option. They blend luxury with style, making you complement your bride-to-be beautifully.
3. Cufflinks and Tie Clip Combo
We’re all about the accessories for wedding fashion. As a wise man once said, “the difference between something good and something great is attention to detail”.
While your tux, shoes, and tie will do the bulk of the talking for you, the accessories that you invest in can be the cherry on top. More specifically, the cufflinks and tie clip that you invest in.
A popular thing to do right now is investing in brightly-colored cufflinks, but we wouldn’t recommend you do that with a tie clip.
Here’s the trick: think about your preference. Do you want a cufflink and tie clip that matches? Are you interested in a tie clip at all? If not, you can get pretty wild with the cufflinks.
Invest in a matching set of brightly-colored cufflinks to show unity among you and your boys standing up there with you.
4. Crazy Socks
It’s subtle, and most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them. But we promise you that you and your groomsmen will have a blast with this idea.
For some of you grooms out there, your bride might be pretty strict with how she wants you and your groomsmen to dress. It is, after all, her day!
However, a great compromise is investing in some awesome, wacky, and outlandish socks for you to all wear. These are quite the conversation starter during the reception as well. Get socks from your favorite sports teams, designer brands, cartoons, video games, etc.
5. Hawaiian Getup
Granted, you’d either have to be planning a destination wedding or be a very unique couple to pull this off. But if you’re willing, wearing a Hawaiian-style outfit will create a wedding you and your future wife will never forget.
There are many different ways you can pull this off. You could simply invest in Hawaiian floral shirts and white pants for you and your groomsmen, or go with a refined leisure suit combo.
All we know is that this getup looks best with your toes in the sand. If there’s any way you could make that happen, do it!
