If you are thinking about adding a bit of color to your suit collection and actually wear it to work we have a few tips you should consider.
1. Stick with a white shirt or a lighter color of blue for the shirt
A lighter shade of shirt will allow your suit to pop and get creative with your tie sticking with a solid color that blends well with your suit. You want something bold but not too bright or it will throw everything off.
2. Make sure your suit is fitted
We like a fitted suit anyway but with bold colors like blue need to carry a certain swag that oversized or undersized just does not encourage.
3. Do not be afraid to try the business casual version
On days when you want to feel less buttoned-up but you still want to rock a suit try more of a business casual look. A few months ago GQ gave some tips on how to rock the business casual option of a blue suit.
A teal-color polo shirt worn with a rich blue suit looks comfortable and luxurious in a way that the white shirt never will. Add luxe leather loafers instead of lace-up shoes—like Gucci’s recently reworked horse-bit slip-on—and you’re in serious swagger mode.
A dope watch and a cheeky printed pocket square will seal the deal on the whole thing, turning you into the guy who looks admirably well-appointed but not like a try-hard either.
