    Cream or stone.

    Would navy be too much? What about gray herringbone?

    Navy blazer with navy chinos doesn't look good, because it looks like you are trying and failing to fake a suit. If the jacket were distinctly lighter or paler, it could work.

    Gray herringbone might work. Its a look i do in slower days at the office in the summer when im too bored to really try. Solid but a bit "beh"

    Hmm I see. If I were to change the trousers from navy to cream/stone, and keep the tan shoes and belt, what kind of colour blazer would go well with this?

    Navy. Or a dark tan check.

    With the first look, some kind of light gray with a hefty chunk of texture. Navy pants are tough.

    Even the gray herringbone might work. It's technically ok but I'm not a big fan (although again I do it from time to time)
