A grey suit with a crisp white shirt will never go out of style, but simply swapping your shirt is a great way to create a refreshing new look. Pastel shades of purple, pink and green look spectacular against a light-grey suit and are easy enough to carry off in an office environment.
Tone down the razor-sharp edge of a suit by pairing it with a casual white shirt. Skip the tie and wear it with the top button undone. Roll up the trousers and add a pair of loafers to lend the suit a relaxed feel. Add a bolt of colour with a bright pocket square artfully tucked in.
Mixing formal pieces with casual ones is a big trend currently, which is why pairing your formal grey suit with a striped T-shirt is an excellent fashion move. The outfit gives you the best of both worlds, and when a grey suit is paired with a white and navy striped T-shirt, it creates a look that’s easy on the eyes. You could even wear jeans with your grey blazer and pair it with leather sneakers to up the casual element.
For days when the weather is uncharacteristically chilly or for when monsoon eases into winter, pair your grey suit with a charcoal or black roll-neck sweater. If it’s only mildly nippy, skip the shirt and add textured black monkstraps to complete the look.
The fact that blue and grey pair well together is not news, but by varying the tone of blue, you can create a colourful look that isn’t overpowering. Pair a bright, cerulean blue shirt or even a blue polka-dotted shirt with your grey suit and add a printed pocket square or a bow tie in the same shade of blue to create a cohesive look.
