To carry your pant coat style elegantly it is imperative to follow certain guidelines. The style of the
sweater, color, and weight all matter substantially.
Creating Contrast of your Sweater with the color of your Suit
The neutrals are commonly a winner in most cases, and it is wise to avoid bold shades when choosing
the color of your sweater. Whites, browns, and greys go well with navy, black coat pants, and charcoal
suit jacket. Avoid looking bulky! Choose lightweight sweaters over chunky ones no matter how well it complements the suit jacket.

Crew neck sweaters are the easiest to style with all types of suit jackets. Cardigans and V-neck sweaters go well with ties although cardigans look more formal than V-neck sweaters. For sheer elegance, our favourite style is turtleneck sweaters as they appear sleek and sophisticated.
For casual suiting, it is easy to create numerous looks from a few pieces in the wardrobe. The strategy is to separate the pant color or print from the rest of the suit.

V-neck Sweaters and a Power Suit Jacket
V-neck sweaters are an innovative combination and are far from sober in comparison with crew neck sweaters. Unlike crew necks sweater, you should wear a shirt underneath a V-neck sweater. A tweed suit jacket goes really well with these types of sweater designs. You can pair it with soft colored chinos for a perfect easy-going look. Only a pair of buskins or Chelsea boots is required to complete the urban-chic look.
Choose a grey V-neck sweater with either a white T-shirt underneath it or a sky blue, white dress shirt paired with oxfords or loafers.

well. Finish the look with white sneakers.

Turtleneck Sweater with a Blazer
Despite so many variations available, our favorite sweater suit combination is that of a turtleneck sweater with a suit. It is widely seen on screens and red carpets, and it is hands-down the most sophisticated attire for men. For a contemporary outfit, choose a dark-colored, ribbed turtleneck. For a formal outfit, a charcoal suit
goes really well with a black colored turtleneck sweater or vice-versa. For an old-fashioned look, opt for brown coat pants with a beige colored sweater. For an utterly relaxed look, you can pick a patterned turtleneck sweater to wear for your informal and casual outings. Achieve the final look by pairing it with Derby or Chelsea boots.
Cardigan Sweater with a Suit Jacket
A suit with a cardigan looks stunning and glamorous as it shows off all the layers.
For prominent layering choose a cardigan sweater with a dress shirt and suit jacket. As the cardigan is quite similar to a waistcoat as it has a deep V, choose the colors of your dress shirt smartly so it complements the overall appearance of the suit. In order to spice up a sober look, go for a patterned dress shirt underneath the cardigan. You can even play with various patterned ties with it. A charcoal or navy-blue coat pants can be paired with a pencil-striped dress shirt and a navy or black cardigan over it.
A Burgandy or olive cardigan goes well with grey coat pants.

go for a white dress shirt so it doesn’t cancel out the effect of the bold cardigan color or pattern.

handpick a tie or a pocket square for a formal appearance and occasion.
