Complimentary Colours For Blue Suits

The Dion’s shade of blue is bright, but not so bright it cannot be worn as a neutral base shade. It works well with other blues and beiges as both colours are present in the Dion.


This does not mean you are restricted to only those colours; the Dion has plenty of versatility. Try pastel shades, pale pinks, purples, and yellows. These are an excellent place to start your colour and styling journey. Experiment from there and have fun with your styling.

Suit Styling For Casual Days

Smart casual is about finding the perfect blend between formal and informal pieces that make you feel the most comfortable. If you want the ideal outfit for a first date or party, the Dion may be the choice for you.


For a simple smart casual look, wear a White SUAVE OWL Shirt, brown brogues, a belt, chinos, and a Dion jacket. It is a simple and comfortable look with plenty of character, a winner every time. Sand chinos work excellently with the Dion, playing into the champagne accents of the suit.


You could also try the Dion trousers with a polo or short-sleeve shirt, fantastic for warmer days in the office.

Suit Styling For Your Wedding Day

Planning a grooms look is exciting. You can go all out and wear whatever makes you feel your best for your big day. The Dion suit is perfect for standing apart from the crowd.


Lots of our grooms opt for getting the same suit as the rest of their party with a different waistcoat. The Dion’s champagne trim and blue tweed makes it work exceptionally with waistcoats from a few of our other suits. For a pop of lighter blue and added charm, wear a Wells waistcoat. The Ted waistcoat and the Elwood pair in with the champagne tone. The Elwood’s lighter cream and houndstooth pattern is popular for grooms, it adds intrigue and interest when paired with the Dion. The Ted’s distinguished tan beige with navy check adds a classic and refined element, perfect for the big day.
