Touch of Color

Color Coordination
Besides dressing for a good fit, color coordination packs the additional advantage that makes you stand out once you walk out the door. But you also do not want to go overboard and come across as too flashy. Using a color chart, you are able to discover new ways to combine your wardrobe to make an impression at a low budget.

Knowing how to tone down if its too loud and glow when its boring allows you to always look your best. Your choice of shirt, pants and ties should always bring out your face and enhance your body shape.

Dark colors makes you look thinner while light colors project putting in more bulk. Darks are definitely more formal than lights.
Men and Contrast
If you notice, we men have contrast too - our skin, hair, eye color. A high contrast person is one whose hair contrasts his skin color.  His choice of outfits should mimic his high contrast characteristic. Choose a dark suit with a light hue shirt. A distinct tie will complement well.


A low contrast person on the other hand is the opposite. Light hair, light skin or dark hair dark skin. little hair or bald men also fall under this category. Too much contrast will take attention away from the face. Monochromatics are the better choice.

For casual wear, a triadic combination is a good approach.  Keep a keen eye on your surroundings and have fun experimenting!
