How To Choose Your Outfit Colours

Benjamin Barker Suit Bundle

Have you ever considered which better colours of clothing might look best on you? Another aspect of proper dressing is selecting the right outfit colours. Colours that suit you will enhance and complement your appearance. Pairing that with refined tailoring, you will look put together at all times.

Know your skin tone
Skin tone is the place to start when figuring out your colours. The three prominent undertones are cool, warm or “neutral”. Those who are “warm” will have green, yellow or golden undertones, “cool” has a bluish undertone while “neutral” is generally difficult to discern between these tones.

The Benjamin Barker Komei Dusty Olive Suit and Pants provide the perfect combination of sophistication and class. Style it with Matsusaki Easy Care Sand Pinpoint Shirt and Davis Jacquard Charcoal Tie.

Universal colours for all
There are some shades that strike just the right balance between warm and cool. It’s useful to know these colours, especially if you’re looking for something to wear in a pinch. Colours such as stone, black, navy, and true red are some examples that tend to work on everyone, no matter what their skin undertone is.

The Oshima Alfalfa Suit paired with its matching pants can be styled with Ryohei Embroidery Bengal Stripe shirt, Horace Stripe Navy Tie and Ossulston Winston Loafer Leather Shoes.

Coordinating your wardrobe

To guarantee you always have something to wear, choose items that are easy to mix and match.

For a better understanding of colours and how they work, red, yellow, and blue are the primary colours, followed by secondary (a combination of primary colours), and tertiary colours. (a variety of primary and secondary colours).

Complementary colours on the colour wheel are directly opposite each other. For example, red with green or yellow with blue. Analogous colours are where two or three are matched that are immediately next to one another on the colour wheel.

Choosing colours that really suit you can be tricky. People often have the propensity to either choose colours that they simply like or to select "safe" colours that may not be the most attractive.

Experimenting and knowing which colours suit you best will help you look sharp for any occasion. Wearing the right tones and purchasing clothes that are a perfect fit can affect more than your looks, how you feel, and what others think of you.
