With autumn fast approaching, and summer having been a near-total write-off in Ireland, we are looking ahead to some opulent and masculine style trends for grooms for the coming months. The Fall/Winter 2015/16 menswear shows featured lots of dark, muted tones, luxe fabrics and classic fits, leading away from the super-skinny pants and ties of seasons past. Today we explore some of our favourite groom trends – let us know your favourites!
Want to stick to the classic dark coloured suit, but break from tradition in another way? Pattern is key here. Dolce & Gabana did it so well, with a sophisticated jacquard pattern adorning full suits, or just the lapels for those who want only a hint of detail. Roberto Cavalli went in a similiar vein with the muted, velvety jackets, but in a more modern pattern.
The New Traditional
Rustic and vintage wedding trends were reflected by tweed, and a masculine, old-world style graced the runways in the form of sharp tailoring that screamed gentleman. Ralph Lauren and Dior did best, with enviable waistcoats, pocketwatches and bowties.
For dull winter days, add some depth to your look with powersuits that shine, like these styles from Versace.
