What happened to Black Tuxedos?
Black tuxedos have become passé and men are wanting to stand out in a canvas of black here, black there, black tuxedos everywhere. The navy blue tuxedo is a compelling choice in tuxedo color because it gives a gentleman a chance to be unique while still being suitable for any semi-formal or formal event requirements.
Blue Tuxedo hostile takeover
The Slate blue tuxedo was at its highest popularity in the 1930’s. It took a decline toward the 1940’s, however, in 2016 the navy blue tuxedo rebounded as a fashion choice in tuxedos. Among the most popular tuxedo trends is the navy blue ‘Hudson’ tuxedo that has a beautiful black satin lapel and black satin besom pockets. It has a slim fit design that is sleek and elegant.
You would think that the powder blue tuxedo would have seen its demise in the late 60’s and early 70’s with the awful ruffled shirts. Not so, say fashionistas. The powder blue tuxedo is coming back with a vengeance. When you take a slim fit powder blue tuxedo with a black lapel and pair it with black slacks, black bow tie, and black cummerbund you have a timeless look that is definitely unique and will make you fashionable. I personally went to Prom in 1982 and the hottest tuxedo color then was Navy Blue. My family back in Michigan who own President Tuxedo mailed me out to Phoenix AZ a Navy blue tuxedo to wear to my prom. My late Uncle was the best. I took it to have it pressed after I took it out of the box and I was a sharp looking prom goer.
Grey Tuxedo is the trend
In a field of black, a gray tuxedo is definitely a hot tuxedo! A recent Tuxedo blog called gray tuxedos the “Icing on the Cake”. You want a look that is elegant and tasteful, yet catches the eye. Gray is just the trick. It is decadent without being ostentatious. There are so many great shades of gray, from a graphite gray to a light gray, a medium gray with a print and a steel gray, there are wide choices of gray in any hue to fit your skin tone. Maybe this is why Gray Tuxedos have made such a big hit the last year or so, can you believe it was brown Tuxedos before this? What tuxedo color will be the next more popular?
For men with blonde hair and a light skin tone, a dark gray tuxedo is just the trick to making the skin tone and blonde hair pop. Dark gray has the versatility to go with any skin tone and men with brown hair and medium tones look sexy in a dark gray tux. For men with darker olive or brown skin tones and black hair, a light gray suit is so elegant and dashing.
