I just purchased this J. Crew cotton & linen sport coat and need some advice for business casual pants. What color goes well with this light blue sport coat? https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/j-crew-ludlow-houndstooth-cotton-linen-sport-coat/4817904
White or ivory/off white are both good bets.
Both very good recommendations. Khaki (if you mean a darker tan as "khaki" has a lot of definitions) is the one that requires the most skilled "eye" to make sure the shade and tones work, but when they do, it's a very good look.My choice would be khaki or light tan hued trousers, to be paired with that jacket.
Thanks. But as I said in my original post, I am thinking about business casual. Certain colors, such as yellow, may not be appropriate.It's a sport coat, so you just need something that offers contrast. The prior posters have given you the two ways to do that vis-a-vis light blue: with something white or white-adjacent or with something dark.
British tan---your standard "khaki"---is probably not your best bet here. Nor would I try to use another light blue: that would be the definition of clashing. (Case in point: the trousers on the bag-carrying fellow in London380's photo look great; his tie is wrong, though.)
White, stone, natural linen, etc., on the other hand, would go well. For a bit more visual pop, a bright darker color, like the red or blue seen in London380's photos would work; the blue needn't be jeans, of course. You probably could do a wide variety of shades of yellow, also, if you want to wear yellow pants.
