Top 4 Most Worn Colors by Men Across the World

One of the things men are most afraid of is color. Our ability to mismatch even an outfit with two colors on it make us stay away from color at all costs.

Color isn’t difficult once you get the hang of it. It can make you stand out in a positive way – FAST. Can you overdo-it? Sure. But that doesn’t mean you should shy away from it.

The secret is to start small. I’ll show you what the most common colors for men are, and how to match them. Once you know what those colors are, you can match them without risking to make mistakes that are too big.

#1 Blue

You probably guessed it: blue is THE most worn color for men. In fact, even women wear it a lot of times. Blue has a calming effect, yet it’s considered a cold color.

Chances are you have plenty of blue clothes already in your closet. Most jeans are blue and, if you didn’t know, blue-jeans can make amazing outfits if you know how to match them.

Blue goes very well with a lot of colors: black, white, gray, purple, yellow, green. If you have a pair of blue jeans, you can try a t-shirt of any of the colors mentioned above.

The thing about blue is this: if you want to make a cool-looking outfit, you have two options:
You can get some stylish items of clothing, such as a sports jacket or use the power of accessories.
You can try an outfit in different shades of blue and purple. You don’t really need fancy vests, bow-ties, slim ties or accessories for this and STILL look good. Here’s what I mean:
– a pair of jeans
– a purple polo shirt
– a light blue canvas belt
– a dark blue pair of sneakers

Dressing in the same color family from top to bottom is great. and with blue, you’re still on the safe side.

#2 Black

Black is classic and we know we can’t go wrong with it. Even a full black outfit can look good on any man. The beauty of black is that it looks good on you no matter what your skin complexion is (unlike other colors).

#3 Purple

Purple is being chosen a lot by young people lately. The main reason is that it’s different from blue and, as we know, everyone wears blue. Purple Can go very well with blue, black and white. It can go well with green but you need to pick the shades right.

#4 Green

Green is the alternative to purple. There are men who like green and men who like purple (leaving black and blue out). Green can go well with black and white while matching it with other colors can be a little difficult. It all depends on the actual shade of green (dark green, light green olive green).

Here’s my advice: go for green and purple, because you probably already have lots of black and blue clothes in your closet already. This way you can start experimenting with color matching without risking too much.
