Charcoal grey is on the rise for all pieces of clothing, but charcoal grey suits are a relatively new phenomenon in the business environment or at events. Charcoal grey is basically a range of grey shades covering all the tones from middle intense grey to dark, deep grey tones. It may seem more tricky to find color combinations to go with it, but in reality it’s not. Let us introduce you some 100% perfectly working charcoal grey combinations.
What color shirt with a charcoal grey suit?
The most basic and commonly asked question out there. Obviously, you can never go wrong with a white shirt, for any colored suit. This will create a nice contrast of colors and then you can build on with colorful accessories. Favourite tie colors to go with charcoal grey are pink, navy blue, green or purple.
As the charcoal grey color is very formal, you can allow yourself to experiment a bit with the print on your shirt. Below, you can see two examples of shirts we chose with a charcoal grey suit. If you feel comfortable with it, combine your grey suit with a bolder print or keep it subtle to look business-elegant. Keeping it more subtle on shirt gives you an option to be bolder with your tie selection, but don’t go overboard with a bold tie AND shirt.
