The classic navy suit is regarded by many as the pinnacle in suiting versatility. From the races to the board room, a navy suit will suit all complexions, flatters all body types and resonates with the leaders. However in more recent times the navy suit has been seen walking down the isle of many of our Germanicos Grooms.
With a few simple styling choices, you can turn a staple into a suit befitting of your special wedding day.
Make it a three piece suit! With the inclusion of a waistcoat, you instantly elevate the look of your wedding attire. Not only will you stand out once the celebrations have kicked off and the jacket has been taken off, you will look a million bucks when it comes time for the photographs, giving you a dapper edge over the groomsmen and ensuring you stand out above everyone else on the special day.
Give me navy but make it a tuxedo! By adding a black dutches satin trim to either a peak or shawl lapel, buttons and welt pocket openings, you elevate the look of semi-formal attire and turn it into dinner wear. Giving your suit that striking edge by making it a tuxedo ensures no one mistakes who the groom is for that special day. A midnight navy in a supple woollen texture, contrasting against the shimmer of the satin lapels makes for a beautiful contrast and has a timeless, impeccable touch that will leave heads turning.
Textures and patterns are wonderful elements used to really bring a subtle navy to life. As more bridal parties are taking their weddings overseas and celebrating under the northern hemisphere summer, a playful look is often used to really capture the vibrant setting of a beach, resort or vineyard. A window pane check with a pop of contrast colour or a basket weave texture with flecks of light blue really add a wonderful dimension to any navy suit and ensure the jacket can be work as a separate sports jacket, reinventing the outfit time and time again.
