Radiant Orchid Style for Groom & Groomsmen

radiant-orchid-inspiration-board
When Pantone announced “Radiant Orchid” as their color of the year, designs from all industries took notice. As a result, not only has this romantic lavender color found its way into women’s wear, but it has also started to become popular on certain men’s accessories. Neckties, shoe laces, pocket squares, bow ties, dress shirts, lapel flowers, boutonnieres, patterned socks, and colored cotton belts are some of the best pieces to infuse this trendy color into your wardrobe.

Because Pantone’s “Color of the Year” has such a strong influence, it is not surprising that some of our favorite bridesmaids dress designers have added this hue into their dress collections, and to offer you matching groomsmen ties we are excited to have added several new designs in matching color. Above are four of our favorite lavender hued neckties. For more groomsmen Style inspiration using this color, please also take a look at our New Pinterest Board.

winter-mens-style-silk-scarves

New Jersey stylist, model, and blogger Denny shows us how to dress in style this winter season! Even though his look features a wide range of patterns, fabrics, and styles, it is still coherent, and indeed quite pleasing to look at. What is even more impressive: This entire look cost Denny less than $100. Yes, you heard right. We are talking about the entire outfit consisting of a classic Vintage wool blazer, plaid shirt, tartan bow tie, silk scarf, vintage fedora hat, boots, and pants; all for under $100. The secret? Denny is a true master at finding bargain style pieces at local thrift stores, a skill that convinced him to start his blog: Look Rich, Shop Cheap. Since finding the exact same pieces at a thrift store near you is impossible, we did a bit of searching to find them online for you here:

Winter Tweed & Floral Neckties

Not quite sure what to wear for a fancy Holiday dinner? Then local Bay Area stylist Daniel Vu has some style tips/inspiration for you. The look he decided to feature for us is a perfect juxtaposition of winter fabric with summer patterns. The heavy tweed jacket is perfect for the chilly season, while the bold floral tie adds fresh seasonal colors and unique pattern. Best of all, this look is very budget friendly of around $300 – who would have thought…

Happy Holidays from the Bows-N-Ties Style Team! We hope that Santa is bringing you some dapper accessories.
