Mens Spring Summer Fashion Formula #2: Pull an Outfit Together with a Dominant Color

Mens Spring Summer Fashion Formula #3: Pull an Outfit Together with a Dominant Color
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

One of the secrets of looking pulled together is to sport an outfit with a dominant theme.  This theme can be anything from a color or pattern to an era in time.  Here, we’ve constructed a breezily sophisticated menswear outfit, sewn together with blue as a dominant color and brown as the secondary accent color.

1.  Start with a pair of dark rinse blue jeans and a blue button-down shirt.  The gingham print on the blue shirt adds a bit of visual texture without being overly distracting.
2.  Toss on a light blue pullover sweater.  Note how the light blue color contrasts nicely with the dark blue jeans - and is visually distinct from the gingham blue shirt.  The three blues work in harmony with one another.
3.  Finish off the look by adding shades of brown - in the form of a khaki trench and a rich brown oxford shoe.  Brown provides a rich counterpoint to the cool blues and rounds out the outfit visually.

Guys, what’s your favorite color to build a look around?  Share your style with us in the comments!
