A lot of men don't have much colour in their wardrobes, probably because it's more challenging to combine them successfully or they're unsure about what suits them.
So to assist you on how to introduce some colour into your wardrobe this summer, here are my 5 top tips on combining colours whether it's for casual or formal wear.
1. Combine two neutral colours with one brighter one eg: navy and light grey (neutrals) and bright green.
Green textured cotton polo shirt - Cos - £35
Pale grey cotton stretch chinos - Cos £59
Navy hemp zip up jacket - Cos £79
2. Contrast your colours on the top and the bottom when wearing a blazer and trousers eg: light grey blazer and navy chinos.
Hudson plain blue jacket - Suit Supply £259
3. Wear different shades of the same colour together eg: shades of light pink through to burgundy.
Pale pink t-shirt - John Elliott at Mr Porter - £80
Deep rose pink bomber jacket - Cos for Mr Porter (exclusive) £135
Burgundy Chuck Taylors - Converse at Mr Porter - £70
4. Blue and green should always be seen. Whether it's a pale pistachio green and denim blue, jade green and indigo or khaki with navy, contrary to the old saying "Blue and green should never be seen" I think it's a winning combination.
Indigo open weave merino blazer - Paul Smith £530
Green cotton v-neck with contrast side stripes - Paul Smith £155
5. Bold solid colours look good with bold contrasting prints eg: bright yellow shorts with navy & white contrast print t-shirt:
Yellow tailored swim shorts - Frescobol Carioca - £135
Navy "Freijo" t-shirt with white pattern - Frescobol Carioca - £75
"Haston" navy & white flip-flops - Orlebar Brown - £35
