Black Jacket

A black blazer looks best with black, grey or light blue pants. You could also wear khaki, olive or patterned pants with a black blazer. Stay away from navy and dark brown pants.

Grey Jacket

Light Blue Jacket

A light blue jacket will look great with light blue, navy, grey and black pants. This color jacket is typically reserved for spring and summer. Keep in mind that this color is more informal than a navy suit. 

Navy Jacket
