Four Ways To Try Spring’s Best Hues
Wearing color can be difficult for a lot of people. And we get it, it’s just easier to choose your trusty black tee over that pastel pink one that’s be sitting in your drawer ever since you had that colorful mood at once six months ago. So Jay-Z said “get y’all black tees on, all black everything,” but that was 2009 so it’s time to listen to someone else (us) and embrace some brighter hues. Adding a few staple colors to your wardrobe won’t hurt, we promise.
In fact, it might even help you escape that feeling like you’ve been wearing the same thing all week long. Your cycle of black, white, gray pieces on repeat needs a serious break. So, scroll down for four colors we highly suggest you add to your wardrobe (right now). They’re nothing crazy, but their existence will up your wardrobe game above every other average dude.
There is nothing to be scared of when it comes to navy. It is the darkest shade of blue (practically black if that helps you ease into it), but way better. It’s one of the most universally flattering colors and will set you apart in a sea of black clothes. This non-threatening color is ideal in tees, trousers, button-ups, sneakers, anything, really.
Army green will never go out style. It made its mark as the signature color for military-inspired jackets plus, let’s not forget about its debut in the camouflage print trend. But, we suggest you stick to wearing army green as a solid. This color looks best on utilitarian pieces such as boxy jackets, structured pants, and in accessories like caps, bucket hats and backpacks.
If you’re really feeling it, try these vintage-inspired military coveralls.
No, beige is not for old people. Trust us, this color will be your new ultimate neutral rather than black or white. It looks good on everyone and with a spectrum of shades it’s practically five colors in one easy step. Just like navy, it works on all your favorite wardrobe staples.
I think we’re all past the whole pink is for girls thing. This playful color is an easy way to brighten up your wardrobe. From dusty pinks to deep roses (don’t let those names scare you), you’re bound to find your pink match. But, if the idea of wearing pink doesn’t make you scream “Hell yeah!” then start with a pop here and there in accessories like sunglasses, sneakers and caps.
