Groomed to perfection

Q. My groom-to-be is very fashionable and would want an on-trend big-day look – what would you suggest?

A. Danielle Harvey says: Firstly, the cut is important for a contemporary silhouette, opt for slim-fit for both the trouser and jacket.

When it comes to colours, variations of blue are still proving popular from navy to cobalt blue. This hue is easy to accessorise as it complements any colour scheme.

Although the 'rustic' trend is evolving into a more country-chic-vibe, tweed is still a great, versatile look fitting to rural venues – to make this style on-trend, have your groomsmen in mismatched tweeds.

For the fashion-conscious, a truly classic look that will never date is the black tuxedo – suave, sophisticated, you can't go wrong, a modern touch would be to include a personalised monogram in the lining of the jacket with the wedding date and initials.
