CUMMERBUND

Want to add a splash of color to your tux? Then you can’t go wrong with a cummerbund. They are usually worn with a single breasted tuxedo jacket, matching trousers, and a dress shirt. The most important thing to remember is that your cummerbund should always match your tie! Going traditional? – Then choose a black, gray, or red cummerbund. There’s one out there that could be the wedding colors, which would give you a debonair look!

CUFF LINKS

Monogrammed or jeweled cuff links are great accessories that really add pizazz to the tux. If you’re wearing a white tuxedo shirt, choose dark cuff links to really stand out. Make sure the dress shirt you’re wearing has French cuffs. Maybe you’re looking to add a bit of humor? You can virtually find any kind of cuff link imaginable – from hobbies, sports, and fictional characters. Definitely speak with your fiancé about going for this “personalized” approach!

FORMAL GLOVES

The classic look is still in! Consider wool, cashmere, or nylon stretch formal gloves for the ultimate statement. Although white gloves may be tempting, it’s suggested that gray or black gloves work best for a black tuxedo. Gloves can be worn in any season, but are especially elegant in a fall or winter wedding. www.gloves-online.com

 THE POCKET SQUARE

Add a dash of color by slipping a pocket square into your tuxedo jacket. Be sure the pocket square matches your other wedding accessories, especially the vest or cummerbund and your tie. There are many ways to fold a pocket square —some simple and some more complicated —but how you choose to wear it depends mostly on personal taste. www.theartofmanliness.com

TUXEDO VEST

If you’ve opted out of the cummerbund, then the tuxedo vest is your next best choice. A tuxedo vest is worn over the formal shirt and under the tuxedo jacket. Pique- collared vests are extremely stylish and very formal. Most pique-collared vests are sold in black or white. For a less formal wedding, you can go for colored or brocade versions. www.dessy.com/men
