Black suits are listed second on purpose. Black suits are still classy and classic, but the trend has changed and black suits are not to be worn daily to the office or majority of events. Today, black suits are mostly reserved for funerals. If you spot someone wearing a black suit to an event or a wedding, it is likely to be a tuxedo. Black suits have already lived through their best times and are giving way to fresh suit colors.

Charcoal grey suits
All grey suit colors look great and we are huge fans of light grey suits, but charcoal grey color is a new favorite among gentlemen. Its dark tone keeps the elegance level on maximum, shows your fashion know how (if you complement it with the right colored shoes) and gives you the option for a change from your everyday navy blue outfit. It is a versatile color and so easy to buy in various patterns and styles.

Green suits are not a classical or a typical choice, but you can still find fine gentlemen reaching for them. Green suits look best in subtler shades, sturdy materials (tweed, corduroy) and combined with a micro pattern such as checks, stripes, herringbone or houndstooth. These suits absolutely prove that you are fashionable and not afraid to show it. Green color is also easier to combine than you might think, so reach for your brown monks and red tie and the most successful outfit of the night is born.

Beige suits or tan suits might not be the most popular option, but if you have to wear a suit to work and the rules are not strict, you might get a lot of wear from your beige suit friend. Beige suits are often made of lightweight materials such as cotton, cotton-linen blends, or 100% linen which makes them a popular summer choice. If you have to wear a suit in summer, whether it is to a summer wedding or any other event, consider pulling off a complete beige look to keep you cool and elegant.
Ok, so, what about champagne suits? Well, they look beige, but usually, they are a little bit shinny. So, if you want a bright beige suit, then probably you are searching for a champagne suit.
