Why so blue? Well, because blue suits rule, that's why. Blue wedding suits (and blue tuxedos) are among the most reliable options for anyone, from grooms to guests. It's a great color to walk down the aisle in and just as safe a bet for guests trying to look good without upstaging either member of the couple. It's versatile, available in a wide array of seasonal shades, and pairs well with plenty of other colors (plus most neutrals)--and especially with brown shoes. You can even get a tux in blue for black-tie occasions. Read on for a look at some of our favorite blue suits and the best ways to style them (or any blue suit you wear).

How to Choose the Right Blue Suit for You

Not all blues are created equal. From seasons to fabrics and shades, finding the right blue suit for you involves a number of factors. Here's everything you need to know to select the blue suit of your dreams.

No Shade

Keep in mind what you plan on pairing your blue suit with. It's a versatile color but one for which different shades make for different shoe and accessory pairings. Darker browns, for example, go better with navy suits while lighter ones pair best with lighter blues. You can also factor in something as simple as preference–do you like royal blues more or are you leaning more towards navy or baby blue? There are no wrong answers; just follow your personal taste here.

Tis the Season

When the wedding takes place should factor into your decision as to which hue is best for you. Much of this has to do with shades and fabric weights–you don't want to wear seersucker in the winter or flannel in the summer. Similarly, lighter blues are better for the warmer seasons whereas darker ones are better for the chilly months. Save light and dusky blues for the summer and try to rotate in more deep navy suits in the winter.


Here's a factor that has nothing to do with color: make sure your blue suit's fabric is an appropriate weight for the weather in which you're wearing it. This means lighter-weight fabrics like cotton, seersucker, and linen in the spring and summer and wools and flannels in the winter.

Your Blue Wedding Suit Questions Answered

Can you wear a blue suit to a formal wedding?

Yes, though it's going to depend on how you style it. For a formal wedding, wear a proper dress shirt (spread collar, no patterns) and a nice tie with your blue suit. Finish it off with solid dress shoes and maybe an accessory or two like a pocket square for a dressed-up final touch.

What color tie goes with a blue suit?

Blues aren't totally neutral but they have a good bit of range. Ultimately it comes down to the shade of the blue. Blacks, greys, and browns are reliable options. Certain pastels can work on lighter shades of blue as do floral print ties.

What color shirt goes with a blue suit for a wedding?

The best shirting option for a blue suit is a white dress shirt. In more casual settings you can get away with plaids and patterns but on more formal occasions, stick with white.

What color shoes go with a blue suit for my wedding?

Black and brown go equally well, though the shade of the brown should correspond to the shade of your suit (lighter browns for lighter blues, darker browns for darker blues).

Should I rent or buy a blue wedding suit?

Up to you! However, you will have far more chances to wear a blue suit in your day-to-day life than a tuxedo, so they're worth the investment. If you'd rather rent, there are excellent suiting services available.
