A man's wardrobe can be difficult to put together on your own.

You have to take into consideration not only the shape of your body, but also matching colors that are compatible with your skin type and the color of your hair.

Don't stress! This blog article delves into easy ways you can use color to boost your style sense in no time!

Matching neutral tones to create a steadfast look

Choosing your colors doesn't have to be hard. After reading this article, you'll find that matching neutral tones will create a steadfast look.

Selecting Color Combos Based on Hair Color and Skin Tone

You could also choose color combos based on your hair color and skin tone. You can visit this article by Ape To Gentleman  for more information.

When trying to come up with outfits based on your hair color and skin tone, it is important to do so with contrasting colors.  

If you have dark pigmentation, wearing bright colors that would pop (yellow, red, blue) would really elevate your style.

This does not mean you're restricted to wearing these colors. You can wear any color you fancy! If you are looking for a change of style, you can consider this method.

Keeping your favorite colors close to heart

When you've finally found the colours that are "you", keep those close to your heart. When shopping for new clothes, you should always consider getting clothing in your favorite colors.

In fact, try to get a bunch of plain T-shirts in a variety of colours, and experiment. You never know what looks good on you until you try. Give it a shot!

For me (Jeremy)  personally, I LOVE weird earthy colors like brown/beige & dark green.  It goes well with my personality and skin tone.


This was just the tip of the iceberg for color theory.   There are too many shades of each color throughout the spectrum to count.  However, through all the colors, you should be able to strip everything down to a few unifying color choices. 

 Hopefully this sheds some light on color theory and gives you a starting point in developing your own unique sense of style. Watch the video by One Dapper Street below if you'd like to know more!
