The hottest 2020 groom wedding attire trends just for you. Check them out and see which look best suits your style for the big day.

While it might seem like wedding dress trends grab all the attention, let’s not overlook the fresh, new looks coming onto the groom wedding attire scene. Grooms, groomsmen, and even groomsmaids are no longer expected to play it safe with fashion, and instead, have endless attire options to fully customize their look.

Curious to know what guys will be wearing down the aisle in 2020? We consulted with our menswear industry experts for an official guide to what’s “in” for groom (and groomsmen!) wedding attire this year.

Hello, Velvet

For men tying the knot between October and March, velvet is an increasingly popular option, according to Stephanie Aynilian of Biltmore Tuxedos in Ridgewood, New Jersey. “There are many different colors of velvet jackets that pair perfectly with black pants for a chic yet classic look. Plus, if a groom doesn’t want to go all velvet, there’s always a velvet bow tie to add a little bit of fall or winter flair to his look,” she said.

For men interested in a twist on tradition, vibrant groom wedding attire color options are a great go-to. Rich colors like burgundy, maroon and forest green are all adding a modern edge to suit and tuxedo styles, allowing grooms to make a statement on their big day.

New Groomsmaid Options

“In years past ‘groomsmaids’ haven’t had much, if any, suiting options to show that they are on “his” side when the big day arrives, said Jeanne Foley of The Groomsman Suit in Chicago, Illinois. “Now, with the launch of our matching women’s suiting line, we are seeing just how many women are ready to show their support for their best friend, brother, or close family member by wearing what the groom chooses for his crew.”

Playful Tie Patterns

When it comes to incorporating pattern, Jeanne Foley also said many grooms and groomsmen are beginning to embrace a more daring look. “We are seeing tons of florals, pin-dot, stripes and a combination of the three. While solid, more neutral tie colors still rule weddings, we’re loving how some couples are choosing a bold and fun tie to define their wedding style.

Red-Carpet-Inspired Accessories

If you’re a bit of a daredevil when it comes to your fashion choices and want to wear something a bit risqué—think Timothée Chalamet or Michael B. Jordan on the red carpet—then you’ll dig this new menswear accessory. Novelty bibs, or harnesses (if you’re into that kind of thing) are the next fad in menswear that we can totally see risk-taking grooms sporting on their big day. Designed by Louis Vuitton and currently going viral after several award shows, these edgy pieces are perfect for grooms with a, ahem, wild side.

Contrast Vests

While the term “contrast vest” might give you bad flashbacks to high-school senior prom, this look is slowly making a more tasteful appearance in groom wedding attire. “While we’re not seeing bright colored vests make a comeback, we are seeing more grooms choose a textured gray vest as a complement to the navy suit for a mix-and-match look,” Foley said.

All About Navy

Despite its popularity for many years in a row, experts agree that navy blue is one menswear trend that’s not going anywhere in 2020. According to Jeanne Foley, “The classics are still going strong, and navy is such a great grounding color to play with fun accessories like the contrast vest or patterned tie. Plus, navy still gives you that formal look but can also easily be styled for a rustic backyard wedding.” Similarly, Stephanie Aynilian shared that the navy blue tuxedo is an ongoing most-requested look. “There are so many style options in navy blue,” she said. “Whether it’s navy with a black lapel or all navy, it’s a very modern style option while still holding a traditional look.”
