We don’t cover much on mens fashion here at Rock My Wedding and I think thats a shame but really, it’s because we don’t claim to be experts. My man pretty much takes care of himself in the fashion department, keeping Abercrombie propped up when he’s off duty, M&S Autograph for work and having a lot of love for the mens department in Selfridges when he’s treating himself.
However, a lot of what you see on these pages is what we LOVE and we hope you will love it too… so today I’m going to push a bit of fashion forward style for the gents.
The Bow Tie.
We see a lot of Bow Ties on the gentlemen across the pond but somehow it’s just not quite filtering over here. I’m not sure if it’s a serious moment I’m having over Chuck Bass and the return of Gossip Girl to our screens, or the cheeky colourful and strangely relaxed yet stylish vibe they give off, but I am loving the bow tie at a wedding these days.
Lets face it, our men-folk don’t always get the greatest of says in styling your wedding (‘Chair covers? What are they?’) but getting your beloved involved in choosing his own outfit can be a great way of him feeling involved in the planning, comfortable on the day and also getting a little bit of their personalised style into the over all feel of the day.
Most importantly, we’re starting to see some seriously sharp grooms style on these here pages and I know that Cool Brittania rules supreme so why do the boys get lumped with tradition, when we’re rocking our fashion forward frocks and dolling up the maids in the chicest creations?
The Bow Tie doesn’t need to be all geek-chic, glasses and unique style. It’s just as comfortable in a glamorous setting as per this Brighton (Hurrah for the UK!) wedding.
Sometimes traditional and classic is the way forward, but how to make it modern? Lose the Tux and work a simple well fitted dark suit with a slim fit shirt.
Get me One!
Think you can talk your man into wearing a bow tie? Or is it right up his street in the first place? Well here’s a few tips on where you can pick one up without too much trouble.
So what are your thoughts on the bow tie and what look might your man be sporting to make him stand out on the most important day of his life?
