With the debs season only a few weeks away, it is time to find the perfect suit.
I’m away in France at the moment but conscious that upon my return home to Cork that it is only a matter of weeks until my debs and that I will need to get my debs suit. With that in mind, I got to thinking as to what styles and types of suit I would like for my debs and what seems to be popular lately (while not forgetting the timeless garments too).
Sharp and Slick
Trying to find the perfect blue between outdated and old matte navy and tacky shiny bright blue can be difficult. The colour you want is royal blue – opulent and deep with a slight shine to catch people’s attention. This is the perfect investment, for your debs, college balls and even life in the office. Paired with a crisp white shirt, a knitted tie and brown shoes you simply can’t go wrong.
Old School Fun
With everything vintage becoming all the rage at the moment, why not opt for something a little different and go for a two piece plaid or tweed suit. With so many different base colours and plaid line styles the options are endless; personally I like a grey with brown plaid, pair it with some tan shoes, grey braces and a nice patterned bow tie to complete the look. The blazer would work perfectly over a pair of dark jeans or chinos and white shirt for a more casual summer look also.
Why not really splash out and go for a full three piece suit in a a rich burgundy or bottle green. Jay Gatsby will have nothing on you, stand out from the rest with these subtle but striking colours with satin peaked or notched lapels. A statement blazer like this can become a key piece in your wardrobe as it can be toned down with some well tailored jeans when going out for drinks or a meal. With the fitted waistcoat, it means when you take off the blazer you’re not just left with a plain white boring shirt
And finally the James Bond dinner jacket / tuxedo, if you want to stand out from the crowd there is no better way to do it than with a a slick tuxedo with a shawl collar. Leave the boring black at home and why not go for a deep blue velvet with a shawl collar or dark quilted grey.
