The Elegant, Modern Groom by Providence Classic

Georgia Groom by Providence Classic
D&G Suit - $995.00; 9tailors shirts in Snow and Stripes - $60.00; Steve Madden Shoes - $99.95; Salvatore Ferragamo Belt - $270.00; TW Steel Watch - $525.00; Tiny Dot Bow Tie; Apt 9 Textured Tie - $30.00; Roulette Cufflinks - $29.99; John Varvatos Cufflinks - $330.00; Anemone Boutonniere.

Our bride Kimberly is marrying her love in Atlanta, Georgia in the spring. The look of her wedding is modern elegant romance, without being too formal. I chose this black D&G suit as the perfect example of classic with a contemporary touch. Think Josh Duhamel when he married that lady who will remain nameless due to my jealousy. H.O.T!

Kimberly's man can go traditional - white shirt with slim black bow tie or a little more mod with a textured slim white tie - or add a little flavor. The striped shirt, which comes off as solid from a distance, can be paired with the white tie or, for a fashion forward guy (and Kimberly's man seems on-trend, wearing Diesel and True Religion), go ahead and mix prints! Wear it with the bow tie, my personal favorite.

I love accessories. And somehow I always pick the expensive ones! But these Steve Madden shoes - with a fabulous thin toe, a must with slimmer pant legs - are a steal at $99.95. A reversible belt will find use long after the wedding day while roulette or gun cuff links add a shot of personality (this ain't no boring groom!). A rose gold and black watch is so handsome - and the mixture of metals is more interesting than wearing silver or gold from head to toe.

I, too, chose a single white flower for the boutonniere - an anemone, classic southern elegance.

Hope you liked today's style - stay tuned for next week's!
