You can try Black Neckties on a white formal shirt slightly hugging your Chest, moreover the belt should also be a black leather. 

To enhance this look, you can wear a trendy watch(Timex preferred), it could be a leather strapped one to give a formal look.

A light Grey Colour suit is usually lighter as compare with its other dim forms. This suit functions admirably for spring, summer, and fall dressing, and that implies you don’t simply have to bother on figuring out how to pick a suit tone and focus on picking the right shirt and tie. The light grey suit is more relaxed. It is ideal to put resources into one Grey Suit once a man has all of the “unquestionable requirements” in his closet.

The lighter the shade, the more straightforward it is to present examples, like checks or herringbone, into the suit as the examples are easily visible.

  2. Navy Blue Suit: With the Navy Blue, also the shirt remains the same and the tie is recommended a dotted blue, you can also wear a plain blue one, but not black. The belt colour should match with your boot’s colour and that should be Tan(recommended), a brown shoes would also be fine, but black would ruin the combination.

But make very sure not to wear a wrong accessory.

  • Cufflinks: These little subtleties have a major effect, giving a cleaned finish to your shirt sleeves.

  • Lapel Pin: Showcase your character with a lapel pin – be it an exemplary blossom or an exceptional emblem, it’s an subtle statement piece.

  • Belt: Matching your belt with your shoes finishes the look as well as improves the general congruity of your outfit.
  • Collar Pins: Little and subtle, collar pins add a classic touch, keeping your collar set up while conferring a refined stylish.

Tailoring Tips

Fit is the Key:

Ensure that the suit coat fits well across the shoulders, with sleeves finishing at your wrist bone. The coat ought to fasten comfortably without pulling, and there should be sufficient space to move your arms. Trousers should sit at your regular abdomen and break somewhat over your shoes.

Length Matters:

Focus on the length of the coat. It must be covering your seat and following the bend of your back without appearing too short or long. Trousers ought to have a slight break at the front, making a spotless line without overabundance texture.
