When you first begin really thinking about your style, knowing what to wear and when to wear it can be hard. That’s one of the reasons there are so many rules of fashion available for men to follow. These rules make looking good easier for men.
At the beginning, simplicity is often the best. You know that if you wear neutral colours, you’ll look good, whether it’s a grey tweed jacket or a navy business suit. After a while, however, you may want to branch out from those neutral tones and add a bit more colour to your wardrobe. This is easier said than done, especially if you’ve never done it before. Thankfully, there are a few tips you can use to make it easier without stepping too far out of your comfort zone.
The first thing we’ll do is separate your ensembles into three different categories: sport, business and casual. Now we’ll address how you can add colour in each category.
Injecting colour into your business apparel isn’t as hard as you might think. Here are a few things to think about.
Are you used to wearing blue denim jeans and a matching tee shirt when you go out with friends or stay at home?1.Mix it up by choosing a different type of trousers to wear when you’re at home or out on the town. Chinos work well for almost any casual event and come in a variety of colours for you to enjoy, including wine, coffee, ocean and navy. They pair well with almost any casual shirt and can even be dressed up with the right shirt for dates and semi-formal get-togethers.
Sportswear can refer to a variety of clothing items, including beach wear, shorts and even tweed jackets- depending on where you wear them. If you’re wearing a tweed jacket on a fox hunt or during a romantic hike in the woods with your beautiful girl, it qualifies. So, how do you incorporate colour into this type of clothing?
Adding colour to your wardrobe may help show off your personal sense of style, but you must do it carefully if you want to look your best. The best option is following the rule of three. This rule states that you should never use more than three different colours on one outfit, and each of those colours must compliment the others. Using four or more colours can leave the ensemble looking messy.
You can use patterns with these colours as well, but the rule of three also applies. Three patterns in total may be used with your colours, and one of them must be a solid.
As you start out, try adding one bold colour at a time and experimenting with the way it looks. As you become more comfortable, you can incorporate more colour into your wardrobe and try different colours at the same time.
