Suit Colours Worth Trying Now
Suits are classy. They make you look smart and dapper. Be it in a casual, semi formal or formal setting, they stand out.
When it comes to suit selection, it is so easy for most people to gravitate towards one of two staple colours: black or grey.
Although these might be traditional suit colours, the truth is, they can also be very boring as nobody is likely to notice even if you wear the same suit for five straight days.
But don’t you want to be noticed? Bold colour tailoring is more interesting and stylish than traditional; it’s also very versatile.
So, whether you need something special to wear to attend a cocktail, or you just want to jazz up your office suit game, here are five bold suit colours worth trying. Remember, however, that you either go all the way or wear them only half way.
Royal Blue Suit
Super versatile, works well in formal, semi formal as well as casual settings. Plus it makes you look young and sharp. For formal occasions, pick the classic white dress shirt and for semi formal or casual occasions, you can team it up with shirts in pastel hues and then ditch the tie.
Lime Green Suit
Lime green suits work well with black or white colour shirts. For instance, you can pair your lime green suit with a white shirt and a dark colour tie, for a formal look. Ditch the tie for a more casual feel. Black shoes add a great look to lime green.
Baby Pink Suit
Go extremely bold by trying out a baby pink suit. Baby pink is great for semi formal and casual occasions. A peak lapel baby pink suit paired with a white dress shirt and a complementary tie is a good look for semi formal events. For a smart casual look, you can pair the single breasted pink suit with a white dress shirt and forgo the tie option.
Burgundy is relatively easy to wear, complements most skin tones, and works well as separates. Combines perfectly with a white shirt and navy knitted tie, as well as with tonal combinations. For example, try using a pastel tone of the colour; a strong red linen/wool suit with a pale pink shirt or tee, for a show-stopping look.
If you wish to have all eyes on you, if it’s a big day for you, a big meeting, an important presentation, or a day where you will be the center of attention like a wedding or award ceremony, then pick an off-white suit. It commands respect and attention.
