25 Dapper Looks & Ideas for Autumn/Winter Grooms

New trends pop up season after season and weddings are no exception! And with stylish grooms having way more fun with their wedding attire, groomswear brands and stores are following suit with some brilliant options for lads that are looking to up the style stakes in honour of the Big Day. Autumn/winter sees the welcome arrival of gorgeous warm fabrics like tweeds and velvets, rich check and herringbone designs and beautiful hues like burgundy, greens and plums. Classics like Tuxedos are a style staple for dapper autumn/winter grooms while grey and navy suits also prove super popular. As always accessories are a great way to bring in some colour and personality – botanical prints, wooden cuff link details, knitted bow ties and button holes full of charming touches like cotton blooms, lush winter foliage and seasonal element like berries and pine cones will give a suit that gorgeous Autumn/Winter edge. In terms of trends for this season, Declan from Collar & Cuff says we’ve stepped back in time with a bit of an 80s revival.

The Trends for Autumn/Winter

“What goes around, comes around”, said Declan. “Never a truer word spoken when it comes to fashion trends. This Autumn/Winter we have seen a dramatic shift in trends and that shift has taken us back in time. Back to the 80s in fact. Double breasted suits, textured geometric fabrics, bold check designs, soft tweeds and 3 piece suits with a contrast vest were all prominent looks back when The Cosby Show, Alf and The A Team took over our TV screens. Well guess what, they are back. At Collar & Cuff this winter all of the above are readily available through top brand suppliers such as Magee 1886, Remus Uomo and Torre to name a few. In our professional opinion we feel this season’s looks are the most directional that we have seen for a long time and we love it.”
And to give you a taste of some of the fun option out there for A/W grooms, we’ve rounded up stylish looks and ideas we’ve come across on grooms in our real weddings and on Pinterest! Check them out below…
