How To Style Your Groom To Perfection…

Morning ladies and Gents, how does Wednesday find you?  I thought I'd venture over to the 'other side' today and run a feature on the male element of species.

Truth be known, I'm not reeeeeally a top hat and tails kind of gal.  I much prefer a rather more relaxed, dapper-chapper kinda look.  So when James Thompson of POSE London contacted me to see if I thought their latest collection of suits for Grooms might interest my readers, I knew in an instant they would, because secretly, I think we all share the same kind of style and preference through these wedding blog pages. I love a man in a sharp, tailored, well-cut suit. Gives me goosebumps it does.

POSE London is a small, forward thinking brand for men offering simple yet edgy fashion, whose purpose is to enhance the wardrobe of any man looking for classic pieces, flattering fit and stylish design. 

Velvet suits.  I love…

I got talking to James from POSE and here's what he had to say…

"The reason I am writing to you is recently we have had quite a few grooms into our Covent Garden store looking for a fashionable alternative to traditional groomswear and so I thought I’d drop you a line to show you the sort of thing we do and see if you thought your readers may be interested at all.   

As our name suggests we hope to offer something a bit different for those who want to stand out in a crowd!"

I presume most of your readers are looking for wedding dresses but if they are anything like my wife they may also be interested in looking at what their groom could be wearing too and point them in the right direction! We have wide range of styles that would fit into many wedding themes and are on trend with couples wanting a more unique and personal look on their big day…"

And so a glorious relationship {Love My Pose?} was struck up and we decided to share some Groom styling looks with my readers 🙂

I'm going to work you through a number of different styles to suit different looks this morning starting up with a walk through the seasons…

The Retro Autumnal Look…

If the 1970s and autumnal hues are your wedding inspiration then this look will suit you to a tee with its retro detailed chocolate tweed blazer and catwalk inspired paisley swirl shirt. Burnt orange, gold and champagne all work with this look.

Summer Skies Look…

You've got your something borrowed and old now get your new and blue here! A classic navy suit is given a fun twist with a paisley printed shirt and soft blue tie. By the way, blue is my favourite 🙂

The Vintage Winter Look…
