Heart & Dagger Skinny Fit Three-Piece Suit

Built for the modern man who appreciates his avocado toast and an occasional artisanal cocktail, this suit can be worn all together for full impact, or broken up to achieve a more subtle style statement. It may be cut to fit close to the body, but with a nice amount of stretch, there isn't any worry that it won't move the way you do, like on a bike or something. ($317; asos.com)

Calvin Klein Extra-Slim Birdseye Suit

If you're not sure you can go with an over-the-top plaid quite yet, but you've exhausted your navy and gray options, opting for a Birdseye fabric in a neutral tone—like this black-and white-number from Calvin Klein—is going to be your best bet. Because this color is familiar, chances are, you already have stuff to match. You can step out of your comfort zone while remaining in familiar territory. ($149.99; macys.com)

A chocolate brown suit is a surprisingly versatile option for anytime of year. It looks great with the rich and festive colors of the holidays, but pairs perfectly with butter yellows and chambrays in the warmer months.

Asos Skinny Fit Three-Piece Plaid Suit

Big, bold, tartan-esque plaids are having a moment right now, but they may make their way back to passé for those who like to keep up with all the latest trends. That makes this three-piece option a perfect pick if you don't want to stick to trend. Go hard with all three pieces together, or go easy with just a subtle touch with the jacket, or vest, or trousers. And if you're really on the fence, don't worry: these pieces are sold as separates.

Nordstrom Men's Shop Trim Fit Tuxedo

You may not want to wear this everywhere, but it's still a worthy purchase. After all, a nice-looking, well-fitting tuxedo isn't one that you rent—it's one that you own. Even if a tuxedo place guarantees you'll like the way you look, it's a better bet you'll end up paying too much and looking unkempt anyway. At this price, a classic like this one will pay for itself in no time. ($429; shop.nordstrom.com)
