Men Clothes Color Matching 101
One of the things guys ask me all the time is how to match one’s clothes. This question pertains mostly to colors because that’s where us men have the biggest problems.
How can you really stand out from the crowd?
What’s the one thing that will draw women’s eyes upon you? (without effort…)
In fact, it’s not color… it’s.
When you make a great color combination, you’ll really feel what it’s like to have people admire you.
Think about it:
If you stop wearing t-shirts with big logos on them orwith sandals, you’re on the right track.
If you take good care of your, you’ll save yourself from embarrassing moments… But it won’t get you any attention.
If you start wearing a nice shirt or a, you’ll look good but you still won’t hit a home run.
BUT, if you wear a great color combination… that’s another story, isn’t it?
Learning to match colors is like learning to be good at a sport: the more you practice it, the better you become. If you’re clueless about where to start with, I’m going to give you some excellent tips.
It won’t be easy at first and you’ll probably be afraid to wear this or that combination.
It’s ok, I’m here to help.
The Color Wheel to the Rescue
Let’s start with the color wheel. Do you remember it from grade school? If not, here’s a picture of it. You’ll see why we need it in a second.
Let’s throw in some notions about colors. Red, yellow and blue are called the primary colors. Any other color is a combination of these three.
The secondary colors are, and purple. Mix any two primary colors in equal proportions to get them.
Two colors that are next to each-other on the color wheel are called analogous…
… and color that are on opposite sides of the wheel are complementary:
OK, now let’s see therules, that are BASED on the color wheel.
Remember these 2 Rules Forever and Ever
Analogous colors go well together only when they have the same level of intensity.
Complimentary colors create high contrasts. Be careful which ones you wear because some shades don’t go very well with one another. In general, complimentary colors go well together. Just make sure you avoid the red and green combination. You don’t want to look like an elf…
When you start to actually match your clothes, you need a lot more rules than the two above. Color intensity, luminosity and the colors’ shades need to be taken into consideration. However that’s not something you need to learn by heart.
Once you have the fundamentals handled, you need to start looking at stylish outfits to train your eye to feel what works and what doesn’t.
