wedding forecast by JM :: luxe tux

So we've highlighted quite a few bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, shoes and accessories, but you're probably wondering, "What about my groom?" It's about time we shared some haute fashion for the men! I hope you enjoy what I've gathered for today's post -- Luxe Tux.

All eyes will definitely be on the bride, but the groom must also look his best to distinguish himself from the rest. After all, it is both the bride and groom's big day. The formality of a wedding will dictate the bridal party’s attire, but whether the groom is in a tuxedo, suit and tie, or khakis and a button-down, he will want to make a lasting impression, and obviously, reflect his personality. Last month, models were strutting the runways in Paris and Milan during the 2010 Men’s Fashion Week. After perusing the collections of famed designers, I noticed similar trends amongst them. Evening looks were composed of linear and straight shapes and light layering was embraced with the absence of ties. The accent of graphics, cool jacquards and patterned silks with the overall sharp look screamed urban attitude. Check out some of these hot ensembles, fit for today's wedding.

Fashion Wire Daily reported on Giorgio Armani, “For next spring, Armani wants guys in lean yet sensitive suits, cut taut at the shoulder and fluid at the hip. They demand a fit body to work well, but in an era where expense account lunches are infrequent, a slender silhouette seems very with the times."

I just want to hug the brilliant designers behind the striking collections as I can already envision grooms and guests in tailored suits looking svelte and sexy! -- JM
