Accessorise to personalise – top tips for a unique look
Updated: Jul 28
No matter how many weddings take place up and down the country, when it comes to your big day, it will be a unique event with a chance for you and your partner to put your big personality stamp all over it.
Over the years, much has been made of how important ‘the dress’ is. But in this new era of non-traditional weddings, the groom’s outfit deserves just as much time and effort. It is no longer enough for a groom to step into a grey or blue suit, couple it with a white shirt and a cravat or tie to complement their partner's look. Grooms wedding outfits are now being chosen to reflect the wearer’s personality as well as to reflect the theme of the day.
Take a classic suit Most grooms will still start with a classic suit. Let our experts at Chimney help you find a colour you look good in – and makes you feel good. If you’re used to wearing a blue suit for work, maybe go for grey or brown.
Two or three-piece?
Are you going to wear a waistcoat – and if you are, will it be matching or contrasting? There has been a growing number of grooms opting for a tweed waistcoat or a more traditional one, but in a different colour from their suit. Either option looks great and allows you to explore different looks. Does your wedding have a colour theme? This can be reflected in your choice of waistcoat.
All tied up
A tie – or maybe even a bow-tie – can really give a different look. Again, consider the colours of the bridesmaids’ outfits and the flowers. Take the chance to make a statement with your neckwear. And don’t be afraid to go off-piste. Remember, this is your day and if you want a tie that shows your love for campervans or Star Wars, there is nothing that says you can’t do it. But you may want to discuss it with your bride if you’re wanting to be really bold.
Express yourself Don’t forget the extra little touches, like a pocket square or cufflinks that show your character. A pair of carefully chosen socks can add a fun touch – and they’re mostly hidden so you can take the chance of being a bit braver.
