CAMEL AND NUDES TONES GO PERFECTLY WITH DARK SUIT AND BRIGHT ACCESSORIES
Men’s fashion and style is totally a different ball game and as detail oriented if not even more than women’s. Putting together an outfit that will go from morning meetings till dinner in the evening can be problematic – we here in Helsinki have such a chilly weather that you are bound to have a lot of extra clothes with you anywhere you go, or already on you.
When it comes to looking good in a suit, even in fall time it is a must that suit are perfectly fitted for you or comfortable. If you are planning to go with layering clothes, like we did today, it’s better to have a suit jacket or blazer that has room for all those soft and warm cardigans. So you could consider making a suit as fall attire – if it has become too loose and you were planning to taking it to the tailor.
Colours are the most fun part and some might say, the most hardest to go wrong with. Elegant and classical colours mean those fresh and calm colours that will not ever go out of style. Camel and nude tones work really well with dark haired men, blondes prefer primary colours (blue, red) because beige shades might leave them looking too pale.
PLAYING WITH DETAILS
Combining a dark suit with calm classical colours gives you room to spice it up with accessories. The less extravagant you go with your base look and clothes, more you can add and highlight. Tie and handkerchief are items that should never mach by pattern, but are the key pieces to making your look interesting, sophisticated and stand out in a sexy, subtle way.
Don’t be afraid of the bright, exciting choices. Small accessories should actually be the eye catchers and if they work well, they will make your suit (no matter luxurious or affordable) look amazing. Being brave with classical and untraditional outfits makes you discover new attitudes and features – finish it off with a flashy big smile and you will stand out for your benefit.
