How to Wear Purple

Purple for Men
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

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.

    I don’t usually even consider purple, but I have to say I quite like this outfit.

    Happy to hear it! That’s what we were going for – making purple more accessible :)

    I was in the supermarket last week wearing my purple long shorts and favorite t-shirt that says “Anything Purple is Mine” and you wouldn’t believe how many positive comments I got.
