The Strong Impact Of Colours

Have you ever stopped to think about the colour of your clothes? When shopping for clothes, you’re probably processing 2-3 pieces per second until one of them absolutely stands out and makes you want to try it on. Colours play an important role while shopping for new clothes. Let’s understand the impact of colours better and why they play a vital role on a daily basis in our lives.

Finding the right shade for the right season

It is suggested that certain colour palettes are best suited for particular seasons of the year. During winters, it is better to wear colours that are sharp and clear. White, black, navy blue, and red, all look easy on the eyes. Summers are all about bright colour palettes. For lighter colours, icy tones are preferable to pastels. Avoid tones like beige, orange and gold. 

Colour Wheel to the rescueA colour wheel often comes to the rescue when you’re in a dire need to save a fashion mishap. After observing a colour wheel, we can see that there are 12 main colours ranging from red to violet, green to yellow, and all the way back to blue to red.These are basic colours that can be referred to as hues. Upon addition of black or white to any one of these hues, the range of colors that can be derived is virtually endless. The trick is in understanding the position of each colour on the wheel, how close or far apart they are is what makes them easy or difficult to coordinate.

Colour Combinations for Casual Style

Casual colours usually don’t make us dive into a state of excitement, but they’re likely to be easy on the eyes. Build your casual collection by adding bright colours such as shades of orange and green. These look good with the Indian skin tone and are also different from the white, blue and black that most men wear. Try wearing your blue denim or cotton shorts with a bright toned tee and white trainers. Simple but effective. You will see how much the colours pop and compliment each other.

Monochrome never goes out of fashion

A monotone chromatic colour scheme is simple and always  stays in trend. Take one particular shade and adopt 2-3 variations of that colour, creating an impact with the hue. Attempt to experiment with dark and light shades. The main ingredient is the pairing of the tint and the shade. Since the colours are similar, there is more room to differentiate by adding texture and layering. 

Colours and colour combinations are an important aspect of fashion and menswear. They add variety, personality and fun to your closet. If you are ever in doubt, pick a colour and don’t be hesitant to play around with the tint and shade.

Outfit Suggestions: Business Casuals

Gone are the days of safari suits and bell bottoms; it is the era of slim-fit trousers and perfectly tailored shirts. These days, many offices have abandoned the idea of strict business clothing such as suits and square leather shoes. The emphasis today, is on the term “business casuals”. Business casuals is a broad term encompassing a whole range of clothing that is stylish and comfortable, yet appropriate for an office environment. Here are a few outfit suggestions to help you build your office wardrobe and master the business casual look.

The Fit

First things first, always wear clothes that fit you perfectly. This point cannot be emphasised enough. Ill-fitting clothes will tarnish your image. Loose, oversized clothes will make you look fat and that’s hardly the look you’re going for. Undersized, tight clothing will make you look like you’re bursting at the seams, as if you’ve worn your teenaged brother’s clothes. They will be extremely uncomfortable to move around in, and you won’t be able to sit down for a long time if you have a desk job. Hence, if you cannot find your size, opt for a tailor service that will give you perfectly tailored clothes that will help you look your best.Shirt FittingsFwd  RE  Siyaram s blog post  - 2

Shirts

Slim-fit shirts are all the rage in the world of business casuals. These shirts highlight the right features making you appear well built, even if you’re not. They are broader at the shoulders and slimmer on the torso. When tucked in, they look sleek and smart. When untucked, they look relaxed, but still smart. Make it a point to pick these up in a few colours, as they should be a staple in your office wardrobe. Pastel shades for the summers and monsoons, darker colours for the winters; that’s the rule to live by. If you were to add a sports jacket over your shirt, it will add a depth of class to your overall look. Though optional, it will complete your look and keep you classy.

Pants

Let’s discuss pants. The iron-clad rule, when it comes to pants, is never, ever, ever wear ill-fitting pants. Pants have to fit you well. When you wear loose pants, that look baggy, they make you look fatter than you already are. As for tight pants, not only will they give you muffin tops, they will be uncomfortable throughout the day. Opt for trousers that fit well, and if you cannot find your size, don’t be afraid to get them tailored. Colours like black, grey and indigo are all-weather colours that will go with any shirts, pastel or dark. Go ahead and pair your pants with a simple belt, to keep looking professional, but with an edge.

Accessorize Well with Your AttireAccessories

Keep your accessories to a minimum. A simple watch can add class, but a blingy one will look crass. When it comes to shoes, always co-ordinate them with your belt and never forget socks. A pair of classic Oxfords will be the most apt choice for business casuals.
