No matter how popular the color becomes, purple still tends to strike fear in the hearts of (some) men. Dust off your worries of wearing what some may consider a feminine color–and remember that purple was worn proudly by men before it was co-opted by the fairer sex. Here’s Omiru’s primer on how to wear purple for men:
1. Start with a basic foundation: a fitted button-down shirt in white, and a pair of grey jeans.
2. Layer on a purple cardigan, allowing the white of the button-down to shine through. Note the grey cuffs on the cardigan, which tie in nicely to the grey jeans.
3. Finish off the outfit with a brown belt and loafers. The brown contrasts nicely with the purple; together, they all feel richer.
