Hey, Offbeatniks! This is Darren from Well Groomed, and Ariel invited me to swing by and offer up a little groom-centric style advice. When it comes to styling grooms (or anyone going for a dapper, masculine style), it's easy to go the rent-a-look route, but that can result in a ho-hum, afterthought look. Carry your offbeat style through for everyone, and you'll end up with a wedding that feels debonaire and personalized.
Channeling a casual vibe for your nuptials? Ditch the suit, and punch up your look with mix-n-match separates. Stick to a cohesive palette, and you can work lots of stripes (and a few dots) to give a casual groom's style some creativity.
A blazer in spring green is extra fresh when paired with white khakis. Add some impact with a blue and white striped button-down shirt and bold green and blue belt. Bright green specs and kicks with a two-tone contrasting sole take the look from head to toe. Finish it all off with a polka dot bow tie to add an unexpected pattern. A leather dopp kit wouldn't be right for this guy to stash his grooming gear. But, a denim one with toiletry graphics fits his style as well as his razor, shaving cream, and cologne.
This look not quite your thing? Don't worry, I'll be back next week with another offbeat look for guys and other dapper types. So, stay tuned!
