Timeless, versatile and utterly dapper, the navy suit is the man’s equivalent to the little black dress. A must-have for any stylish gent, it can be worn in multiple ways and master endless dress codes. To show you what a wise investment it is, allow us to demonstrate how to wear one navy suit four ways.

How to Wear a Navy Suit Formally


Whether you’re a high-flying city banker or have just received an invite to your friend’s wedding, a classic navy suit will ensure you are dressed to impress. For a formal look, team yours with a crisp white shirt, silk tie, pocket square (echoing – not matching – a colour in your shirt or tie) and lace-up shoes. To achieve the neatest silhouette, ensure you only ever fasten the top button of your jacket – never both.

How to Wear a Navy Suit for Business-Casual


Looking to refresh your office wardrobe? By removing your jacket and sporting a simple shirt, trouser and tie combination, you’ll be left with a fail-safe outfit that is smart yet not overly dressy. To add some extra character to the look, choose a tie with an eye-catching pattern and finish things off with a sleek leather belt and timeless brogues.

 How to Wear a Casual Navy Suit


Putting together a smart-casual outfit can often prove a tricky task, but things are made instantly easier when you have a navy suit at hand. To create the desired ensemble, pair your jacket with a patterned shirt, whilst swapping your trousers with a pair of classic chinos. On your feet, we believe some leather Chelsea boots would work best.

How to Wear a Navy Suit at the Weekened


It’s the weekend; you want to look the part without going over the top. The solution? Your navy suit. However, instead of teaming it with the accustomed shirt and tie, wear yours with a fine knit roll neck. Elegant and effortlessly stylish, this arrangement shows you’ve made an effort without looking out of place.
