Tuxedo Trends

It’s almost inevitable to concentrate on the bride, the dress, and the big day since the “She said Yes!” moment. But the “I do” isn’t complete without our groom. As brides have an ample amount of gown selections to choose from, our grooms’ range of tuxedos comes close to it as well.

Let’s dive into the 2014 trending tuxedos.

We see across the board that sole button, single-breasted tuxedo jackets are currently trending, with the exception of double buttons. Bowties are one of the trendiest neckwear we not only see in fashion, but on grooms as well. The preferred material for all forms of ties is silk. Neckties are manufactured in various types of material like wool, polyester, satin, etc. However, silk ties are not only the best aesthetically, they also flow and hang better than most other fabrics used to create neckties. In addition, tuxedos are slightly straying away from the traditional black hue to whites and slate blue.

There are three different types of lapels: Notch, Peak, and Shawl. Lapel is the part on each side of a coat or jacket immediately below the collar that is folded back on either side of the front opening. There are variations of each lapel (ex. narrow, wide, etc.) Here is an illustration to best understand the styles.

Let’s take a look at our White tuxedo candidates from the 2014 Oscars:

We have Matthew McConaughey in his single button and breasted peak tuxedo! Peak tuxedo is best known to be the ultra formal and “Man of the Hour” look. Just like the peak lapel, it amplifies confidence. Nonetheless, we see Matthew donning the silk bowtie!

Our Slate blue candidates from the 2014 Oscars:

Last but not least, our classic black colored tux candidates from the 2014 Oscars:

We have Leonardo DiCaprio in his single-breasted, double button notch tuxedo! Notch lapels are sewn to the collar at an angle, creating a step effect. The notch is the most prevalent lapel style in suits these days. This is mostly because the notch lapel is so versatile. Leo is keeping his attire very traditional in black while sporting his silk bowtie in ebony as well.

It is safe to say that tuxedo shopping has been cut out for our brides! The tuxedo trend as of 2014 has shifted toward the direction of introducing colors of navy and white. Nonetheless, black will eternally state class for all formal attire, but the beauty of fashion is to alter its style and shades periodically. Pairing your favorite tuxedo style with a bowtie will be the perfect touch to your prince as you both exchange your “I dos!”
