The inherent simplicity of summer style can in many ways make the season that little bit harder to dress for. With a dearth of options in comparison to the autumn/winter half of our wardrobes, a shirt or tee matched with a pair of shorts is about as exciting as it gets for many of us when the mercury soars.
This means it’s even more important that you get your colour combinations right. But which hues work best together? Should green really not be seen with blue? These are questions that continue to stump even the most stylish of men.
Here is one of my favorite color combination which you should try for a sunny day out. Also voted as one of the best color combination this season, it’s perfect for any occasion. I have styled the look for a casual day out with a hint of summer layering.
And yes I am talking about the neutrals here. Combining two neutrals is one of the best combo and you can never go wrong with it. White and Khaki are two colors which have been making an entrance on runways from Gucci to Calvin Klein. Here is what I did with these two fabulous colors.
Keeping it simple, I played with the white and black striped tee with my white denims and just threw a khaki jacket on top. White and black stripes with khaki looks perfect and gives you the safari feel.
With strong safari connotations, this classic colour combination is not unlike nautical blue and white – a perennial warm-weather pairing that’s a breeze to wear. Whether it’s a suited and booted or slightly more dressed-down approach that you’re eager to take, designers offered up plenty of inspiration for spring/summer 2016.
Using white on white is not an easy task, especially in a country like ours where you find dust more than fashion stores (not complaining). Therefore to add that contrast, the use of a khaki jacket and the striped tee. Together they look perfect and once the jacket is down you are not dressed in pure white head to toe. The minimal ripping of jeans on the knee is the right way to try the ripped jeans. The minimal distress looks perfect in white ones.
When it comes to shoes and accessories, you can experiment a bit here. Keep the shoes casual and simple, I chose the casual leather sneakers from zara which compliments the blacks in tee and make it a full neutral look. The only color I added is the sun glass which is blue mirrored finish. A leather bracelet in tones of khaki is another add on. A simple neck chain and a black watch is the right way to finish the look.
At the end some pointers for your white jeans. Be mindful of the fit and details of your denim, though – steer clear of boy-band-reminiscent rips and manhood-comprising skinny fits. Choose instead a timeless slim fit and, since it’s more of a spring look, ditch the socks and get your mankles out. Just take care that your pin-roll is on-point.
So here is one of my color combination for this sunny season. try this out on a lunch date and take it forward to evening by adding that jacket for the party look. I will be posting my next color combination for this season soon, till then try this one out and let me know what you guys think. So stay tuned and Stay Stylish
