Why You Should Wear Neutral Colors
Top 10 Men’s Facial Hair Styles
The best clothing colors for most men are neutral colors. Buying clothes in a neutral color is a great way for any man – regardless of body type, age, skin tone or style preferences – to build a versatile wardrobe. Here’s why I love wearing neutral colors and why all of my wardrobe staples are in neutral colors.
First off: neutral colors include black, white, any shade of grey, beige/cream and navy. Even if you only wore these colors, you could be well-dressed and stylish every single day, no matter the occasion. If you throw in a couple more versatile colors, such as olive and light blue, you’ve got a complete wardrobe.
Here’s the best part: if you like other, less standard colors, they will also work with this palette. For example, if you love wearing burgundy or look great in yellow, both of those colors work well on top of a neutral wardrobe. You don’t have to add extra colors, but it’s very easy to do so.
Here are some of the benefits of neutral colors:
#1: All Your Clothes Look Good Together With a neutral wardrobe, putting together an outfit or packing for a trip is a breeze. You can almost get dressed in the dark because everything goes together.
#2: You Can Always Add Color (But you Can’t Remove It) If you want to be more colorful, you can always add splashes of color to a neutral wardrobe. But if all your clothes are bright and colorful, it’s impossible to remove that color for a more subdued look.
#3: Easy to Control Your Contrast As a shorter man, I prefer low contrast outfits. In other words, I try to minimize the difference in tone between my top and bottom halves. But that doesn’t mean I always have to wear dark colors, as some style “advice” for shorter men would suggest. I love wearing light colors, but I want to make sure those outfits are also low contrast. With a neutral wardrobe, this is easy.
