There's nothing quite like a classic black and white suit, but sometimes it's nice to switch it up. If you want to stray away from black and opt for a little bit of color without going for something too flashy, a burgundy suit is an excellent option. Burgundy is a deep red color with a slight purple hue that makes the shade rich and ideal for formal occasions like weddings. It's also surprisingly versatile and a great way to build up your closet.

While burgundy suits do tend to stand out as more of a style risk than black suits, they are also more on the subtle side, as far as colors go. Whether you choose a classic and simple burgundy suit or something more adventurous with texture or pattern, you really can't go wrong. We've put together a collection of beautiful burgundy suits ranging in price that are great for both grooms and wedding guests.

FAQ
  • How should you style a burgundy suit?

    For a formal occasion, like a wedding, the safest bet is to pair your burgundy suit with a crisp white shirt. A black tie works with a burgundy suit, but you could also choose a tie in a slightly different shade of burgundy for a more monochromatic look. For a slightly more casual event or wedding, you can choose a patterned silk or button-down shirt underneath the suit to show off your personal style.

  • Are burgundy suits appropriate for black-tie weddings?

    For a black-tie optional wedding, dark-colored suits are recommended, so a dark burgundy suit would be an appropriate choice. For strictly black tie events, you might be better off with a black tuxedo or suit.

  • What color shoes should you wear with a burgundy suit?

    This wine-toned suit pairs well with almost any color shoe, like black, brown, or even charcoal. Depending on the exact shade of burgundy, you can really play around with color.
