While navy provides an all-year-round air of classic elegance, royal blue - its braver cousin - is the perfect choice for the warmer months. Especially when it comes to tailoring. Here at Oliver Brown our royal blue city suit is wonderfully lightweight and makes the perfect solution for smart summer dressing. It's cut from the traditional single-breasted block for a classic fit and made from 100% wool worsted, sourced in Yorkshire, so you know it'll look and feel great. But how to wear it? Go tonal Pairing your vibrant royal blue suit with a lighter blue shirt, such as our plain linen shirt in pale blue, will soften the overall look. Alternatively, another soft hue such as creamy yellow will complement the striking blue perfectly. Team with brown shoes Avoid black when wearing royal blue in the summer. We find that brown smart shoes are the perfect match and very season-appropriate. Try our suede brogues for a versatile look, or suede loafers for a more casual take on summer tailoring. Keep it crisp The ultimate pairing with a royal blue suit has to be the crisp white shirt. When you need to dress to impress, a high quality shirt under the striking royal blue suit is just the ticket. It's a classic look that will never date, and is perfect for business or pleasure. Our top tip? Wear royal blue with confidence and you can't go wrong.
