You could really brighten it up with some tonal accessories. Say pink shirt / red tie / orange pocket square? Or pale blue shirt, purple tie, green pocket square?
You can do pretty much anything with this look. A pocket square is the best way to separate yourself from the herd and add flair though.
You could even jump on the patterns trend, and opt for a combination like this, which would really soften the look (it seems a bit too much like funeral attire at present, I know!)
