How To Wear Bright Colored Suits For Men
When it comes to traditional men’s suiting, you may not think you have much in the way of color options aside from the classic black, navy, and gray. But color lovers rejoice! In recent years menswear has really been pushing the boundaries and turning up the volume on color. In fact, they’re doing it with everything from pants, shoes, and you guessed it…full suits!
For most people, the thought of a bright colored suit might evoke images of a cane-carrying pimp or pastel-ed dandy. But I challenge you to rethink that notion as you step out of your comfort zone and into the “bright side.” Although admittedly it takes a certain panache or uhmm “swagger” to pull off a suit in anything other than the classic dark solids, there’s most definitely a style and color out there that will suit (meh) your personal style. Think slim suits in a more vibrant hue like a cool and edgy Mark Ronson or a perhaps something patterned and bold for a quirky and playful Brad Goreski vibe.
In this look, I went with a rich indigo suit. Close enough to a navy that it was a safe choice for testing the waters. If you’re apprehensive about trying a colored suit, a shade of blue might be the best way to go. It’s familiar and won’t feel as loud or “girly,” because duhhh blue is for boyz. Keep the rest of the look clean and simple with a white shirt and solid pocket square. (Also just ignore the fact that I didn’t have time to get these pants hemmed before I did this post).
