Now, I know colours can be intimidating to some, especially bold choices like yellow…but don't shy away from the opportunity to add a healthy dose of warmth to your wardrobe. Yes, there is safety in neutrals. We all believe in them and commonly reach for our blacks, greys, beiges, whites —our style comfort zone — and for good reason: we ALL look classically handsome and feel confident when draped in them. But summer is about sunshine, road trips, and daily adventures that you simply get lost in, embracing the uncertainty that they offer. And just like the sun, you to should not be afraid to shine. So, steal a little splash of its life-giving aura for your own sartorial benefit by smartly incorporating it into your trousers. They are a safe bet (unlike a yellow shirt, which for those of us with a fairer complexion, are difficult to pull off) that will not only elevate your style to a new level, but also boost your moral and, naturally, your happiness.
And if you needed anymore convincing, I promise you will be on the receiving end of many a compliment, rendering you as radiant as those glorious two-legged wonders covering you south-of-the-border. Suffice to say, yellow can be intimidating to pull off. But if done like this, sticking to this one simple rule — keeping your yellow below the belt — you will be fine, I promise. And always remember that, just like when adding any other strong/statement element/colour to your wardrobe selection, the rest of your outfit should be more subdued, complimenting the boldness of that one said choice (just like I have done here with the rest of the getup complimenting the trousers).
For a thorough breakdown of this outfit, check back next month as I will be profiling it as my "July Style of the Month".
Would you sport some yellow or are you more inclined to a fresh pastel like sea green or lavender? Or are you strictly a summer neutrals type of guy (which my next post in this series will be detailing…possibly in a park)?
