The baby blue suit was one of the most popular formal suits in the 70’s and early 80’s. This suit was seen at events such as weddings, proms, and even parties. Men could even be seen wearing this suit to disco clubs throughout most major cities.
Light blue suits have fallen out of favor over the past few years but can still be seen on men at retro parties and events. These suits look great on any skin complexion and any body type.
Accessories to be worn with this color suit are white, black, and blue. Shoes worn with this color suit are generally black or burgundy, but I’ve seen pictures of people wearing white or brown as well.
Just remember that when you wear black, brown, or burgundy shoes with this suit, you should wear a matching color belt. I suppose also if you are bold enough to wear this suit and bold enough to wear white shoes with it, you could also find yourself a white belt to match up with it.
The typical shirt color to wear with this is either a white shirt or a blue shirt. However, I’m sure there are people that have tossed on a pink shirt to wear with this. It seems lots of people love to throw pink shirts on with just about any color suit these days.
Pocket squares can be white, or they can match the color of the tie. Traditionally the solid black or blue tie is worn with this suit color.
Although I wouldn’t recommend wearing this suit color, a navy blue tie with white circles would look good with this suit color.
Baby Blue Suit Example
This is a picture of a man wearing a baby blue suit in a two button model. It is a two piece suit with flat front pants.
The tie is navy blue with white dots and the pocket square is white. Surprisingly enough, the suit actually looks modern.
It appears that it may be made out of linen or seersucker, so it may be appropriate for folks living in the southern part of the United States.
Prices on a new costume baby blue suit will usually sell for around $100. However, true vintage suits will vary in price based off material, designer, and condition.
