Ever since David Beckham rocked up at the royal wedding in his navy morning coat and grey trousers, we've been hankering after a nifty navy design to add to our sartorial wardrobe. The deep blue shade will easily replace black at a formal event.
Just make sure the is well tailored and wear with grey , for a lighter and brighter look for the summer. The style icon showed other guests how it's done with his sharply tailored (at least after he put his medal on the right side).
We're also seeing the emergence of a new style icon in the form of James Middleton. Although he has a long way to go until he reaches Beckham's style status, his interesting ensemble at the Royal Wedding was a brave choice, but he made it work. The colourful combination might make you think again when reaching for the standard grey suit, white shirt and black tie and encourage bolder colour choices from even the most die-hard black suit fans. Pastel tones work well for a summer and aren't too bold or bright for a wedding (whether royal or otherwise) and add just enough colour.
James is also a fan of a classic pinstripe, which looks great in navy as well as classic grey and black.
Dressing for a wedding can be stressful at the best of times; dressing for a Royal Wedding however is a whole different ball game. Although to give them credit the celebrities did Prince William and Kate proud and turned up en masse in smart sartorial force.
Guy Ritchie took a leaf out of David Beckham's style book and opted for a grey tie to match his grey ; a look he carried off well even when faced with the style icon himself.
David Beckham wore a grey cravat, navy morning coat and matching waistcoat with grey trousers - the guy has serious style and makes his formal morning dress look modern with this colour combination. Colour choice can be the main way to distinguish yourself when attending a formal event that is typically full of the usual greys, blues and blacks. Elton John nailed this for the Royal Wedding with his yellow waistcoat and purple tie. For someone as flamboyant as Elton John it must be difficult to keep his dress formally acceptable but he clearly shows here how to add that extra something to a suit to show his personality.
His partner, David Furnish, chooses a more understated but very stylish grey tie and waistcoat. Kate Middleton's brother proves his fashion worth with his colour co-ordinated combination. James goes for a powder blue shirt with contrasting white collar, pale yellow waistcoat and pink tie but has youth and good looks to carry it off.
John Major on the other hand shows us how not to do it. Major's pink, blue and grey ensemble looks a little try hard, he should've gone for a white shirt with this look to keep it simple and sophisticated.
So take heed if you're attending a wedding this year: colour is good but make sure it complements rather than clashes, combining different shades of grey creates a smart and sophisticated look and finally if you want to stand out from the crowd go for a navy suit and clash with grey trousers for extra sytle points.
