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. So, if you're seeking a unique way to instantly elevate your big day, consider incorporating this sophisticated hue into your color palette. It's especially stunning for fall or winter weddings, where it pairs beautifully with the golden tones of fall foliage or even the forest green shade of evergreen branches. The best part? The color is surprisingly versatile and a great way to elevate your wardrobe beyond your wedding day.
While burgundy suits do tend to stand out as more of a style risk than black suits, as far as colors go, they are certainly more on the subtle side. The shade proves to be super versatile and pairs beautifully with several neutral tones. It can be styled with brown leather shoes, suede charcoal gray, or even black patent dress shoes. For a timeless, black-tie affair, we love a monochromatic look or a crisp white button-down shirt paired with a sleek black tie. If you're opting for a slightly more playful, fashion-forward spin on the burgundy palette, we can't get enough of looks that introduce texture or pattern whether it be incorporated through the shirt, pocket square, or even socks! No matter if you choose a classic and simple burgundy suit or something more adventurous, you really can't go wrong with the luxurious hue.

What to Look for in a Burgundy Suit
When it comes to making a statement in a burgundy suit, color is everything. It's a deep, rich tone that's sure to make a lasting impression. That being said, you'll want to ensure that you choose the right shade of the moody hue. Consider the color palette that will be incorporated into the wedding day—from the florals to the table settings to the napkins. It's important to note that there are a variety of shades of burgundy. From tones with deep-red hues to lighter, more purple-toned burgundy shades, each slight variation has the potential to exude a different level of lightness and overall aesthetic—who knew? So, you'll want to choose the right shade to not only match the vibe of your nuptials but also ensure that every splash of burgundy is the same. Whether it's from the groom's suit itself or even the table linens, be sure to get your hands on a burgundy swatch that you can use as a standard for comparison. If the groomsmen will be walking down the aisle in burgundy as well, we recommend that all the men's suits (including the groom's!) are purchased from the same designer for a perfect match. This will create an entirely cohesive palette—from the bridal party to the place settings—throughout the big day. Trust us, the perfectionist in you will thank us later.
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.
