One of the best things about summer is the presence of vibrant colours in one’s wardrobe. However, most men tend to be a bit conservative when it comes to colours. It’s no secret how relatively easy it is to pull off neutrals in formal wear, but let’s face it, when it comes to our wardrobe choices, we are limited. After all, how long can we be repeating the same shades of white, grey and black in our formal wear? For even though these are classics that can never go out of style, they can get repetitive.
Of course, it’s not easy – brighter hues can get overwhelming – but introducing a tinge of colour into your wardrobe can bring in a refreshing change. Experimenting and adding colours to your wardrobe is a sureshot way to look trendy and stylish. So it’s time to update your formal wardrobe with colours and express a trendier version of yourself!
Read on to find out which colours you can bring into your wardrobe.
The colour blue is perfect for summers. The lighter hues in the shade translate a feeling of peace and calm that seem relaxing in the scorching heat while the darker hues communicate a feeling of trust and confidence. This colour is a winner for every occasion in your office. Pair it with beige, black or grey trousers and top it off with sleek formal shoes.
Though most of you may not be comfortable with sporting this colour, yellow should have a permanent place in your wardrobe. It can completely liven up your simple office look. Yellow is uplifting and exudes cheerfulness and fun. It inspires creative thoughts and optimism, something that can really boost you up at work. If you are not totally confident with pulling this colour off, play safe by going for a lighter shade like warm yellow. It is, however, a statement colour and needs to be anchored with neutrals. Keeping this in mind, always pair it with surrounding pieces in white, blue, grey, beige or charcoal.
First of all, let’s get over the fact that pink is a colour meant only for the fairer sex. Pink is vivid and radiates the warmth, joy and love for life like you do. It will raise some eyebrows, but you have to be comfortable in flaunting this colour. Pink can be your go-to colour when you are bored of wearing normal black and whites.
Pink pairs well with the plenty of colours you already have in your wardrobe like beige, blue, brown, olive and white.
Red is a powerful colour associated with feelings of energy and passion. It projects confidence in a way few other colours can. Red comes across as being very flamboyant and is perfect to create a strong first impression. If you are not a big fan of this colour, you can try a varied range from bright red to profound maroon. It’s easy to pair it with any trouser you own be it black, cream, navy blue or khaki.
With brighter skies on the horizon, now is the time to bring in the trend of colours and stand out in the crowd. It is worth considering some of the hues you thought you couldn’t wear. So unleash that inner child within you.
