    Best way to accessorise a navy suit

    I have a 1920s themed ball coming up. Seem as the dress code isn't black tie, I'd like to wear a navy suit. I have a lovely, classic number from calvin klein which fits like a dream but am unsure how to really stand out.

    Any suggestions for ties, pocket squares, scarves, or other accessories?

    How about a hat? Trilby to fit in with the 20's theme.

    Burgundy's always a winner with navy but kinda standard, maybe a forest green tie? Or orange? I'm liking the idea of trilby/fedora to add some vintage charm though.

    I quite like the idea of a grey fedora with a navy suit. Could anyone recomend a decent brand/piece?


    As for accessories, I have a burgundy polka dot scarf from Reiss which would look great but would restrict me as far as ties and pocket squares are concerned.

    Hmm...white shirt, mid-blue tie, white/cream pocket square, the burgundy scarf and a fedora?

    Zara had some in the sale, but they don't seem to be available online any more, you could try instore. Topman have a brown one: http://www.topman.com/webapp/wcs/sto...98&pageSize=20

    Don't over-do the accessories.

    Choose a tie, match a pocket square, and finish the look off with a 1920's style collar pin. That's all you need. Let the suit speak for itself.

    Torn between BlackSheeps and Ben's recomendations. At the end of the day, the girl I'm trying to impress doesn't have a clue about fashion.

    Although, looking at Reiss' lookbooks, I am rather keen on collar pins atm.

    I'd probably go for a burgundy tie and try and find a pocket in maybe cyan and burgundy (paisley might work). Other then that I think a collar pin/bar would be more suited that a waist coat. The introduction of metal at the neck would make me leave the tie bar at home as well as it would be an overload.

    But then I can be quite boring in my dress sometimes.
