The pressure is on to look your best on your wedding day. So let's start with a potentially quiet complement to your sharp haircut: Accessories like boutonnieres, ties, tie bars, and yes, cufflinks. These accessories are a great way for grooms and groomsmen to add personality to their look. Plus, cufflinks make a great gift for the groom or groomsmen.

Brocade is a type of fabric weave that creates a raised pattern or embellishment often using a metallic thread. Brocade suits are the latest trend for groomsmen attire, with dapper grooms adding patterns like paisley as a unique accent. For the groom who likes to stand out, brocade is a distinctive way to add some pop to your wedding.

Colored Suits and Tuxedos
A pop of color isn’t reserved just for bridesmaids! From deep jewel tones to pastel hues, grooms and groomsmen are increasingly opting for colored suit options. Burgundy and emerald suits are a growing trend among groomsmen, as are pink and navy. For grooms opting for a colorful suit, try adding in a hue that is complementary to your wedding color (ex. emerald + gold or navy + yellow) or a tint variation of the primary wedding color (pastel sage + deep sage).
Velvet Suits and dinner jackets
Velvet suits bring a whole new level of sophistication to groom and groomsmen attire. For a bold pop of color, consider a mustard velvet suit. For a more traditional aesthetic, a deep navy with black accents is a great option. Pair a velvet blazer jacket with black slacks to create a refined, dapper look for both you and your groomsmen.
Patterned ties are a great way for grooms and groomsmen to incorporate a theme into their wedding day attire. For superhero-loving grooms, an Avengers-themed tie is a fun way to subtly express their personality. Patterned ties can also incorporate aspects of the wedding theme - including florals, book references, or magical elements (ex. Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter).

Loafers are a style of shoes that easily slip on without requiring the need to tie any laces. Often made of leather or suede, loafers are sleek and sophisticated and sometimes include embellishments like a buckle or tassel. Loafers are also versatile in that they can be worn with or without socks - with the latter option being the more dapper and minimalist variation. Loafers have become an increasingly popular trend among dapper grooms and groomsmen.
