Dress your man, and he looks good for a day; teach a man to dress himself, an he looks good for a lifetime. A few weeks ago, we posted an article about men’s fashions. That article reported on patterns, which are still very in! But for a more subtle, but still sexy look, men have options. We have another tip below, so listen up!
Employ some color! It’s springtime. Embrace it. Instead of your standard white button down, go for a saturated pastel– lavender, yellow, sky blue. These colors are eye catching, and when paired with jeans or khakis, always match! Don’t try to be too matchy-matchy; let the shirt be the focal point of the outfit. The other parts of the ensemble should be subtle. Banana Republic offers an especially comfortable, colored button down in their Soft Twill Line, costing $59.50.
An important thing to remember when choosing what shade to wear, is what it will look like against your own skin tone. A good rule of thumb is to pay attention to warm and cool tones. For men with lighter, cooler skin tones, stick to cooler colors, like blues and greens. For men with darker, richer, warmer skin tones, stick to the warm colors, like pinks, reds, and oranges. When in doubt, ask a salesperson for help.
PS, does anyone wish their closet at home looked like this one?
