4 Replies to “What Goes With a Black Suit? When Do You Wear One?”

  1. In general you can wear a black suit the same way you would a charcoal gray or dark navy one. It’s business dress, goes well with a white shirt and tie, and is suitable for pretty much any level of formality short of formal (black tie) occasions. It also works as a non-tuxedo option for “black tie optional” invitations.

    Worth considering: it looks a little stark and isn’t as versatile as the more neutral charcoal gray. Since a suit is expensive and the two fill the same role, you’re usually better off buying charcoal unless you already have one and are looking for variety. Pale-skinned men also look worse in pure black, especially under fluorescent lighting.
