The biggest Tuxedo Trends for 2018’s wedding season are ones you’ll both love — they’re focused on timeless elegance, utility, and comfort, and we know those are all things the groom in your life will want to get behind.
Shawl collars are in
This has nothing to do with the little cape-like sweater your mother in law will wear when the temperature dips. Shawl collars are the rounded collars seen on Tuxedo and dinner jackets that offer a more modern take on tuxedo trends. While the jury is still out on whether they count as the most formal tux collar option or not, they’re generally accepted for all levels of black tie affairs, and let your crowd know you’re a standout, trendy guy. Imagine how great his wedding florals will look pinned to these beveled edges.
While we do love a traditional black tux, this year’s tuxedo trends are branching out the same way floral bouquets and other must-have wedding elements are — into bold, rich colors. Navy tuxedos are currently top of the color trend list for those shying away from classic black, although plays on navy and green, creamy whites, and other eye-popping hues are big too. If you enter and win The Black Tux Giveaway, you can always opt for the brand’s “Midnight Blue” fabric option. You can see the full assortment of fabrics, finishes, colors, and prints from The Black Tux here.
Silk is the fabric of choice for formal neckwear, and that includes traditional ties, bowties, and just about every other type of tie you can imagine wearing on your big day. Silk, silk satin, knit silks, and silk twills are all in the same family of on-trend neckwear fabrics to know. You’ll look as smooth as your tie feels, and that’s something to get excited about.
