Hey Something Turquoise readers, it’s Lauren from I Love Love Events here again, this time sharing something we brides often neglect (or at least put off) when dreaming up a wedding, groom attire. And today, we are talking about a super-fun, unconventional look, the preppy groom. This man has a fearless sense of style, loves a print and isn’t afraid to call attention to himself. This bold style isn’t for every groom, but it would be a perfect look to sport at a nautical wedding or even a rehearsal dinner.

How to Achieve this Preppy Look:

  • colored pants or a colored shirt is a must
  • a quirky pattern is always a good idea
  • not quite so bold? you must have colored socks, pocket square or bow tie
  • add a trendy hat or bold shades if you are having an outdoor ceremony
  • a more relaxed style of shoes is better, camel colored shoes goes well with bold colors
