To style the pale neutral tailoring trend for a formal occasion such as a wedding, a sophisticated cream suit looks great worn with a crisp white shirt and contrasting tie – mauve and dark blue work well.
Less austere than traditional black, navy or charcoal suits, a light coloured suit is both dapper and desirable.
