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!

    Inspired by this, I tried something today: blue-striped button-down long sleeve shirt under a navy blue cardigan, brown khaki pants, and blue-grey distressed leather clarks desert boots (w/ navy blue socks). I’m hoping this works. To me it does, but what do others think of the combination? I’d probably have gone with my brown clarks before reading this, and I think the choice today helped tie it together.
