Before we start on color combos, a big question we get at Generation Tux is what color shoes work best with blue suits. For almost all blue suits, you simply cannot go wrong with brown dress shoes. But keep in mind that brown shoes also come in different shades, everything from mustard to camel to distressed to dark brown. So you’ll need to pick the right one for the blue (and style of suit) you’re working with. The lighter the brown typically the more casual the look.
If dress shoes aren’t your thing, some fun white sneakers can also be a good pick. And if you’re really into your classic black dress shoes, have no fear. You can pair them with our Mystic Blue suits and Slate Blue suits.
This color combo is timeless, creating a crisp and clean ensemble that can work at any event. You can always add a bigger pop of color with your boutonniere or a fun pair of dress socks.
We love a mustard yellow paired with a navy blue suit, but if you want something brighter, any shade of this sunny hue will do.
Blue and pink contrast so well together that you can’t go wrong when choosing the shade of pink that will work best. We love our Bright Blue suit with a light pink tie, but if you want to go bolder, try a Navy Blue suit with hot pink.
This eye-catching combo works at both formal and casual events. The shade of red—from light to deep burgundy—will depend on the shade of blue of your suit.
Don’t be afraid to pair two jewel-tone colors, like our Slate Blue suit with a rich purple. This duo would look amazing at a fall or winter event.
Green will add that pop of color to a blue suit without being too over-the-top. While emerald green gives off a vintage glam look, a mint green presents a more youthful vibe and will look best at a spring or summer event.
This combo is definitely for the man who wants to stand out. Be sure not to go overboard with it—stick with just a dark orange tie and boutonniere.
Neutrals also work really well with blue wedding suits and putting it with gray creates a calm and cool color combo. Simply make sure you pick the right shades so that they work with the shade of blue and the style you’re going for.BUILD BLUE SUIT LOOK
