Trends for Grooms 2023
Our accessories are often worn on a special day and we've recently been asked for our thoughts on "What trends will be popular for grooms in 2023?"
Grooms often wear a traditional morning suit, tail suit or a classic lounge suit, but that is starting to change with a shift into black tie and a chance to express individual style.
Personalisation, pattern, and colour are key trends for 2023. Grooms are starting to take more ownership for what they want to wear on their special day, from bold suit choices to personalised accessories which can be worn again after the big day on other events such as anniversaries.
Once you’ve agreed your colour theme as a couple, start to research smaller businesses on sites such as Etsy and talk to them to create bespoke items. We have recently worked with a groom who chose a circuit board design in the colours of the bridal party for his special day to reflect his day job as a software engineer.
Expressing personal style is key for grooms in 2023 and we see 3 broad groups emerging.
The Print Lover is exactly that, often choosing designs such as tigers and florals, abstracts and prints with personal meaning.
We have a wide variety of prints with just a selection of them shown here.
Choosing a pattern often starts with the colour of jacket, shirt or accessories and we have a number of international designers we work with.
Resize and recolour are always an option, to suit the item.
The Unconventional Groom is looking for something unique to them and is prepared to mix and clash pattern with style.
Pattern can come through the jacket or shirt as shown in the some of the photos here.
Alternatively texture can be a great way to be unconventional. The bowtie features a metallic thread whilst the velvet jacket shown bottom left will work well with a day to evening look.
Finally, we see The Peacock a.k.a. The Dandy who will wear a cravat, pocket square, lapel flower teamed with a great suit and excellent shoes.
Anyone can show off their peacock style and our accessories allow you to personalise as you wish.
The Dandy may take the look from head to toe, from hat to shoes and we have some great contacts and retailers for those interested in finding out more.
Whatever you choose to wear, make sure you feel comfortable and stylish.
As our business motto says, “Do Live, Well Live and Dress Really Well” – especially on your big day!
We always have a range of designs in stock to start a conversation with you in person.
