One of the biggest fashion questions for men is usually the lack of understanding on how to color coordinate and look sharp and smart. In order to stay safe, we always see men wearing clothes with colors maintained within navy, blue tones, black and white, or khakis. While I strongly believe that men can definitely move out of these colors as mens fashion has evolved tremendously.
We are experiencing mens clothing which are colored more vibrantly and playing with more patterns at the same time. So what colors should we settle for? We should always wear colors that either warms up our face or bring focus toward it. The most common mistake is men thinks that wearing white is the best of choice since it is considered a universal color. Unfortunately, it is not the case because pale skinned men with light colored hair looks very much paler with white shirts.
It would be better to actually wear earthy colored shirts or medium blue colored shirts. These two tones of colors help to warm up their faces and create more attention toward the face rather the clothing. What about men with highly differentiated complexion and hair colors like light-colored skin with dark hair?
This group of men actually has a lot of rooms to play around with colors. They can easily wear shirts that are light colored or dark colored and yet not shift the focal point away from the face. Men with medium differentiation, for example tanned skin with dark-colored hair, are more suitable to settle for lighter colored shirts rather than dark colored ones. The dark colored shirts against the skin and hair will create a heavily toned down look and not brighten up his face.
