5 New Outfit Ideas for Color-Shy Guys!
Most guys are reluctant in wearing colors because they think they know nothing about color matching. Always wearing dark solid colors make you look dull. You need to add a bit of color in your daily life to look stylish.
This article is for those color shy guys who find difficulty in matching colors in a way that they sync with each other to produce an outfit that is pleasing to the eye. You don’t need to worry anymore as this article will give you five new outfit ideas that you can use to dress up to look stylish without facing the difficulty of matching the right combination.
- Start with neutral colors:
Neutral colors include white, black, grey, cream and shades of navy blue. This group of colors pair up exceptionally well with most of the colors.
If you start with these set of colors, the chances of you going wrong will sum up to almost zero. Wearing them will give you confidence and as no bright color is included in this group you won’t face any difficulty in color matching. For example pair up grey sweaters with some dark colored smart jeans.
- Pair up neutral colors with normal colors:
Now this step can be a bit tricky for color shy guys. But if you have gained confidence in wearing neutral colors you can move to the next step. Normal colors include yellow, red, green etc. but as you are pairing a bright color with a solid dark color the overall combination will be something more subtle instead of vivid. So that you will not feel over conscious about your outfit. The important thing to keep in mind is that choose only those colors that compliment your personality.
- How to use complimentary colors:
Complimentary colors are those colors that are found at the opposite sides of a color wheel. The word complementary does not mean that wearing these colors will complement your personality.
For color shy guys its best to avoid these colors but they can work for you if you try combining the paler shade of one color to the other. For example try pairing pale gold with blue color.
- How to use analogous colors:
Analogous colors lie next to each other on a color wheel. This means they are the different shades of the same color. So if you don’t want to go for bold colors choose more subtle shades that compliment your skin tone and your personality. It is safe to use one neutral and two analogous colors because with this combination you can never go wrong. But make sure that you don’t wear shades that are slightly different because this slight difference will make you look like you tried hard to match exactly but failed.
- Choose only those colors that compliment your features:
Lastly but most importantly choose only those colors that compliments your personality. No matter what color you like if it does not look good on you it is not for you. Learn to mix and match only those colors that compliment you and we can guarantee you can never go wrong.
