Style: A Color Palette

How to Use Color in Your Outfits

Color is the first foundation of a menswear wardrobe.  We'll get into deeper aspects of it in later posts and tutorials so for now, let's break some of this down.


From black to white, solids and heathers, grey is a must as a staple color in your closet.  Why?  Because grey goes with everything with one exception:  be careful mixing black and deep navy because they can get confused and look like you've mismatched your colors.

These are classic menswear color combinations that will never go out of style.


Blues, yeah you gotta have the blues.  From navy to light blue spread across your suits, jackets, jeans, shirts, and ties, the blues are the single most important color in your closet.

Blue hint!  Blues can have a green or red tint.  Be careful when mixing blues.

Other Colors

We're going to stop here for now because the other colors are going to require some time.  If you start with what you've learned on this post you'll be ahead of most guys. 

Just work through your closet and take an inventory.  Separate the colors into groups, donate things you haven't worn in over a year, and get that feeling of simplicity that comes with a tight, focused closet.

Peace brother,
