If something is looking good on someone, then it is not important that it will look good on you as well. So, before buying a new suit, it is important that you understand your body type and buy your wedding suit accordingly. If you are tall and thin, then you are lucky enough to experiment and try anything you want. But, if you are bulky, then it is better that you go for fitted suit with a little bit of a nip in the waist to give the impression of a leaner you. If you are bulky, then choose dark shades for your suit to look slimmer.

Buy some elegant accessories: Accessories are not just meant for the bride, elegant accessories always compliment the men as well. To get a new look, it is all about going for right detailing and accessories. Try some good and complimenting accessories such as a bow tie, vest, tie, and cuff-links in a different color or style.
