Classic Navy

As our lives and workplaces become more casual, it's common for a groom today to not own a good suit until his wedding. A classic blue suit is a wardrobe staple, and is a great option for a variety of occasions. So, when purchasing one avoid the temptation to go with the cheapest suit available. Splurge on quality fabric and pristine tailoring, and it will last you for years.

Modern Styling

For modern weddings, the color palette often relies on neutrals. To make your timeless navy suit a little more contemporary, accessorize with a tie in a shade of blue-gray, ocean blue, or pale sage.

Bright Cobalt

When the Vogue subscription is in the groom's name, no ordinary suit will do. This cobalt blue suit is bold and stylish (we love the unexpectedness of the deep burgundy bow tie), and ideal for a man with unparalleled panache.

Cheery Cornflower

Cornflower is such a terrific color for a blue suit. It's not quite as formal, and looks great with pops of cherry red and buttercup yellow. This choice would be superb for a garden or farm wedding during summer.

Dapper Seersucker

Never has a fabric been quite so joyful as seersucker. Great for summer weddings, as a seersucker suit isn't just charming; it's also super comfortable in warm weather.

Monochromatic Layering

Many blues look sensational together, as evidenced by this groom's suit jacket with chambray shirt, layered bow tie, and floral pocket square. The khaki pants make the look a little less formal, and would fit right in at a rustic-chic affair.

Natty Wool

This blue wool herringbone suit jacket is just stunning and it looks perfect at this English countryside wedding. This type of jacket will be more comfortable in cooler weather or indoor venues with air conditioning.

Vested Interest

When a little bit of navy just isn't enough, add a vest with brown buttons to match your shoes. Underneath wear a simple white shirt and light tie.
