Three ways to wear a dark navy suit
The cornerstone of the modern sartorialist’s tailoring collection, a navy suit is the epitome of versatility.
Equally at home all dressed up with a tie and pocket square for a cocktail soiree as it is for casual after work drinks with a shirt and sneakers, it’s a piece that will hold you in good stead for most occasions.
It’s for this very reason that styling a navy suit well is fairly easy. In contrast, it’s wearing a navy suit exceptionally that requires a more deft hand. And that’s where we come in.
Drawing on our extensive experience with this wardrobe mainstay, we’re providing the Oscar Hunt guide to wearing a navy blue suit and pulling it off in style. Away we go.
The navy suit as casual attire
Increasingly common, a navy suit worn with a plain white tee is one of the unlikely suiting combinations that are rising to the fore in 2023. However, in order to pull off this look, it’s crucial to first consider the weight and construction of your suit.
Because tee-shirts are generally a somewhat flimsy garment, it’ll look odd if paired with a highly canvassed, heavy wool navy suit. Instead, look for softer, Neapolitan style tailoring in lighter fabrications like linen or cotton that can harmonise with the tee.
To top off the look, we recommend either opting for a suede Belgian loafer or a crisp white sneaker. The perfect balance of elegance and cool.
