I want to teach you how to add a punch (not a bunch) of color into your wardrobe. Sadly, for a lot of men a blue dress shirt is about as colorful as his clothing choices get. I’m not by any means encouraging Rainbow Bright ensembles, but I believe every man should integrate a bit of color into his wardrobe. It’s what separates the amateurs from the pros. You can start by building your wardrobe around colors that complement your eyes or your complexion, and if you don’t know what colors those are, then simply ask your girlfriend. She’ll know.
Before you master complex color combinations, you can start by simply adding an item of color that stays within the same color family as something else in your outfit, or you can add a new color as long as its complimentary. Orange and navy look good together, thats why I added the orange scarf to compliment my navy blazer. If you’re wearing a green dress shirt, go for a forest green tie or at least a tie in which dark green is a main contestant. You can also keep it simple by adding a brightly colored shirt with a dark suit and a dark tie. This look is always a winner.
