A style which will never age is the classic blue suit. It remains one of the fundamental formalwear pieces which we think every man should own in his wardrobe, and it's all down to the incredible versatility it possesses. Work meeting, race day or wedding, your blue suit will be perfectly suitable for all occasions and it would come down to the specific shade, the accessories and how you style it to really tailor it to the event in hand. So let's delve into the details to help you put together your look with the all important blue suit at the forefront.
So you've got a wedding on the cards, the perfect occasion to choose something a bit more adventurous. Lighter shades such as sky blue are a little less business-like and will suit the occasion well. Go for classic checks to stand out and pair with statement ties in playful patterns like florals and paisleys. Coordinate your pocket square and pop on your trusty brogues to complete the look.
For the office a sophisticated navy will be sure to impress your colleagues. If the dress code permits, go for a subtle check and a spot or stripe print tie to go with it. Alternatively a plain navy two piece is a timeless classic and will show you mean business. A crisp white shirt and polished oxfords will finish the look and help you achieve that suave corporate look.
Time to be a bit more creative again, especially when there's a Best Dressed award to be won! Orange and yellow are complementary to blue so a tie and pocket square in these bright, vivid colours with a cobalt blue check will really make a stylish statement. You can even add a silk scarf for extra pizazz and some colour pop socks underneath some slick monk straps will give you a good chance at that award.
First impressions are everything in these situations and we're certain that a navy suit will give you those presentation points. It will depend on the type of job you are going for but you'll be aiming for something similar to workwear. A plain navy for something more corporate and a check for something a bit more creative to show a bit of personality. Pair with classic tie patterns like geometrics or stripes and you'll be well on your way to the job offer.
