There's no denying that every tailored wardrobe should include at least one blue suit. Why? This classic staple piece is highly versatile and can often be dressed up or down according to the occasion. What’s more, a blue suit is flattering on every skin tone and pairs nicely with a wide range of colors, making it a foolproof option for grooms, groomsmen, and wedding guests alike.
As versatile as they are stylish, blue wedding suits run the gamut from timeless and traditional to bold and eye-catching–and come in a wide range of colors, fabrics, and silhouettes to suit all styles and seasons. Looking to outfit your groomsmen in something clean and classic? A traditional navy suit will always look impeccably polished–especially when styled with a crisp white shirt. For grooms who aren't afraid to showcase their fashion-forward style, go for suits in bold patterns like houndstooth or unexpected colors like bright cobalt and powder blue. And when it comes to dressing according to the season, look for heavyweight fabric such as wool for fall and winter weddings or breathable fabrics like cotton and linen for spring and summer nuptials.
