You can’t go wrong with a navy blue suit. Navy is a versatile color that can be dressed up or down to match any event. From the red carpet to the workplace to your next wedding event, this classic suit will continue to remain at the top of the list.

Why Wear a Navy Suit

Navy is usually one of the first staples any man adds to his closet. It’s the prime business suit and you will see blue suits everywhere if you start looking. Don’t get us wrong, though. We are not suggesting that navy is overdone. In fact, we stand by the idea that its classicism is what makes it a great choice for weddings.

Blue is making its stand as a groomswear color and navy is its forerunner. Black is king of tuxedos, but navy is king of suits. There’s nothing quite like a sharp dark blue look. And we are here for it.

How To Wear a Navy Suit

It is important to note that navy is not only easy to accessorize, but it also complements most complexions. Crisp white shirts pop when paired with navy, leaving a blank canvas to add a punch of color with a tie, pocket square or vest. Light blue or pink shirts look great with this suit for daytime or less formal affairs. Avoid wearing a black or darker blue shirt—this combo is rarely successful. Unless of course, you’re a style fiend, then, by all means, you do you.

There are so many great colors that go well with a navy suit. Really, just about all wedding colors will match. Our favorites, however, are the colors that really pop. So bright shades of coral, yellow, purple, mint, etc. Navy suits work particularly well if your bride as a fun palette in mind. But don’t let that stop you, if you’re going for something more neutral or subtle. Ivory, champagne and blush are top-notch options, as well, for a crisp and clean look.
