How to wear: spring colours 

17 May 2018

The comfort zone is (sometimes) no bad thing, but it does mean that a lot of men shy away from colour for fear of looking, well, too colourful. But it doesn’t have to mean dressing entirely in yellow or a full outfit in 50 shades of red, it’s all about carefully choosing pieces that are going to represent the brightness of spring and – and most importantly – help elevate your mood.

Spring is all about bringing out tones that look good in the sunshine, so whether you’re looking for extra pieces to raise the bar for your holiday, or just looking for an outfit to make your summer wardrobe pop, we have it covered.

Blue hues

Blue is a safe place to start, particularly if it’s your first foray into the world of colour. Let it have the limelight it deserves by avoiding clashing it with anything else too bright or bold.

In the red

Don’t shy away from red: it has the ability to completely raise the game. There are masses of options to choose from, whether you keep things muted with a dark burgundy or go bold with brights – it’s all about finding something that works well for you.

Go green

The right shade of green looks amazing on every skin tone out there, it’s what you wear it with that matters. Don’t be afraid to chuck a couple of different shades into one outfit, but do avoid wearing head-to-toe identical tones.

It's all in the details

If you still aren’t ready to add colour into your outfit, do it subtly with accessories. Whether you choose to mix it up with a new pair of shoes or a cap, it’s all about making small, gradual changes.
