Sorry, no. Matching the colors is one of the few things not to do. Another is wearing the same pattern on top. That's to avoid looking like trying to create a suit from separates.
A blue blazer or solid charcoal jacket would work for just about anyone. There are many other options, but their acceptability depends on age, physical characteristics, and situation.
