9 Ways To Pull Off Patterns And Prints (For The Guys!)

While you can’t go wrong with a classic, black-tie tux, incorporating a pattern is a fun way to personalize his attire. From polka dots to paisley, there’s a pretty much a print for every style. The key to pulling it off is to balance a bold print with a solid. If you don’t want the guys to perfectly match, that’s okay too. The only real rule to follow there is to have them stay within the same color palette (otherwise, it’ll look too mismatched!). See below for all the ways you can work a pattern into wedding day formalwear for the groom and groomsmen.
