Blue: A Summer Staple for After 5 Dressing

People often think of black as the “go-to” color when going out for the evening or dressing up for an event. But blue certainly has it’s place, too. Navy is even becoming more popular in formalwear.
Check back tomorrow for our favorite blue casual pieces. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

For some occasions, a 3-piece suit is downright dapper. A word of caution – make sure the vest fits properly. If it doesn’t lay flat, neither will your jacket. Hugo Boss’s contemporary fit, keeps this suit looking modern. If you like the idea of a lighter suit for summer (but powder blue reminds you of the '70's), this pale grey pairs perfectly with any tie, especially this blue paisley one.

If you’re like most men, though, a 2-piece suit makes you feel more comfortable than a 3-piece. This elegant Canali is a perfect option. The navy 2-button has a subtle micro houndstooth pattern that dresses up the suit, so it works for a business function or more formal party (that’s not black tie, of course). And just as it’s shown, it works very well with a a pop of color in your tie.

Every great shade of blue we could want is in this shirt from Canali. And we mean that in the best possible way. They've taken the varying shades and incorporated them into stripes of varying thickness that breathes new life into a sport shirt. Wear it with a pair of linen pants, or jeans like the J Brand twill ones we're showing you here, for a sophisticated - yet casual - evening look.

If you're going somewhere where you feel more comfortable in a jacket, but it's certainly not a formal night, this one from Hugo Boss is going to fit the bill. While it comes in beige, which is great, today we're all about the navy. Notice the subtle stripe detail on the chest pocket that gives this style a little edge and sport. Since it's made of linen/cotton, and is softer in structure, it's perfect for the the warmer weather. Pair it with a bold plaid sport shirt and a great pair of jeans.

Sometimes a great short-sleeve sport shirt is all you need for a summer night. This one from Burberry won't disappoint. In a bold blue and white plaid - Burberry's signature - this trim fit shirt is casual, yet still polished. And it will work with everything - shorts, jeans, cotton pants. You can even throw the Hugo Boss jacket that we're showing (to the left) on with it, if you want to add a jacket to your look.

If you're a gent looking for an easier fit, but still want a nicer pair of pants for a dinner or a casual evening out, we highly recommend these. The silky fabric and double pleat provides a nice drape and easily pairs with everything from a linen sport coat to a short-sleeve shirt. Once you buy a pair, we won't be surprised if you come back for additional colors - like the khaki and black.
