    We can't deny our love of a good black suit, but navy blue has some serious sartorial swagger. 

    Here are three ways your beau can wear it well:

    1. SHAPE SHIFT: Team this classic shade with an equally classic shape in the form of a tailcoat. Give it a modern spin with shorter tails and he won't feel like he's playing dress-ups.

    2. HUE'S WHO: Encourage him to try blue on blue, or dress his groomsmen in differing hues for a cohesive colour combination.

    3. TOUCH POINTS: Bring texture and visual interest to his ensemble by selecting embossed fabrics or materials with a slight sheen.
