It is that time of year, you know, when you dig up your wardrobe for warm clothes, when cool mornings are made special with a hot cup of tea. You guessed it right folks, it is winter time! A lot of people associate winter fashion with dull and gloomy colors, this is so not the case. Winter dressing can be painted with earthly tones of brown, red-orange, camel, beige and many more. The hues range from soft, earthly to deep and bold. Here are some colors that you should definitely wear this season.
Blue: Blue, especially with deeper tones like navy, cobalt blue or ink blue are great for the winter. Go for dark shades in bottoms and bright Mandarin collar shirts.
Grey: This is a color that has become synonymous with being boring and dim, that is just so wrong. Grey is a sophisticated color and when paired with high contrast oranges, reds and yellows, makes a statement. It has an understated elegance that brings confidence and sophistication in your dressing.
Brown: Earthly, warm and neutral are some attributes to describe brown. Winter is the perfect season to wear this color.
Camel: A lighter extension of brown, camel with a soft, creamy tone works best for suits, bottoms and accessories.
Yellow: Shades of yellow, be it in softer tones or brighter ones like chrome, mustards and ochres, are perfect to cut the monotony of winter.
Reds: Tones and hues like Claret, orange, coral take prominence in ethnic wear and party formals to brighten up the dull season! For instance, a bright red Gingham check shirt or a maroon banker’s shirt paired with beige pants will get you through any casual event with style.
You can never go wrong with colors like white, ivory and black, they don’t follow any season. They don’t fall into any specific categories and are open for experimentation. White and black shirts with French cuffs are classic and will give you an opportunity to add a spark with cufflinks. So go out there and explore.
Now, wearing the right color is not just enough for sensible fashion and styling. As a man, you have to know what looks the best on you and why! God definitely did not make us all equal, so there’s no ‘one-for-all’ concept of styling! We all are made differently and hence need different styles so we you flaunt your best side.
Men with a lean and slim body structure look best in lighter shades of yellow, camel, and cream. Darker shades are for men with a heavyset body. Along with that you should avoid horizontal stripes, checks and thicker fabrics.
If you have a good height, count yourself lucky. Tall men can get away with pretty much anything. But just make sure you do not match your top and bottom. Even if you are not blessed with height, no worries just avoid horizontal stripes, big checks, and dark bold colors, be careful about prints and you’ll be fine.
Colors and style are only as good as you make them. Just remember, that when you go out for work or to enjoy a cup of evening coffee, be confident and feel stylish and you would bring out the best in you!
