So you want to wear Navy Blue Tuxedos? Whether you are going to Prom. a wedding, a quinceanera or a fabulous New Years Party there are a number of styles and colors that are really standing out this year. Business Insider reported that over half of Hollywood’s hottest men sported a midnight blue tuxedo at The Golden Globes this year. Men seem to be leaning toward the trend of more color, but muted colors, such as grays and dark reds.
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.
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 out of the box and had it pressed and I was a sharp looking prom goer.
