Our friends at DETAILS rebooted the standard black-tie uniform to offer men five fashionable ways to personalize their formal look. Grooms take note—with tips like these, you can easily punch-up your tuxedo or suit and preserve the sense of style that makes you, you. Because no one should have to get married feeling like just another penguin.
Tip: Don't Be Afraid of Velvet
The material is especially appealing in a jacket because its weight creates structure, and the light sheen will also add a festive touch to your outfit.
Tip: Go Navy
When you want to stand out without totally sticking out, this classic hue is a smart way to bend—not break—the rules.
Tip: Strike a Contrast
Pair a tux blazer with suit pants for a fashionably offbeat look. Make sure to choose dramatically different colors.
