What Shirt To Wear With A Light Blue Suit

A white shirt will always work well, a plain shirt in the same shade is another option, or you might prefer to add some personality with a floral or geometric patterned design that complements the blue colour of your suit.

What Tie To Wear With A Light Blue Suit

There is no rule to say you have to wear a tie, especially if you are throwing a more relaxed summer wedding and are opting for a powder blue suit. However, a tie or bow tie is a must, then take the colour of your suit and your shirt into consideration. For example if you have a patterned shirt keep the tie or bow-tie plain and maybe add interest with a textured fabric, alternatively if your shirt is plain you will be able to add a playful print if you wish with your choice of tie.

What Shoes To Wear With A Light Blue Suit

Tan or brown shoes will work with paler shades of blue, however, for the baby blue suiting options you will need to opt for cream or white – maybe a navy/blue shoe. If you’re ditching the tie and your wedding has a more relaxed dress code, then a pair of white pumps could be worn with a powder blue suit, just ensure they’re new or very clean.

Blue Blazer & Trouser Combo

Finally, if head to toe pale blue isn’t for you, have you considered a mix ‘n’ match wedding suiting option? A pale blue, well tailored double or single-breasted blazer paired with a different coloured trouser – navy, or beige for example, will work nicely. Black trousers will be too heavy with the pale blue.
