The Best Color Combinations for Your Clothes

Neutral colors consist of black, white, grey, browns, and beige. They’re called neutral because they’re not overpowering.

They’re infinitely mixable and extremely versatile. I’m sure you have a lot of clothes in these colors in your wardrobe, and you know how to put them together.


You literally cannot go wrong when pairing black and white. No one will tell you it’s a weird color combination. In fact, the high contrast gives a clean and elegant look.


Here I will review the meaning of each color and, with a few examples, explain how to use color schemes to look more stylish.



"RED" means danger, passion, anger, immediacy, and love.

Red is a naturally warm and attractive color. It’s bold and eye-catching.

Red can be quite severe when paired with black, white, and other neutral colors.

Avoid wearing red accessories with red clothes as it seems overdone, instead go for gold, silver, or white accessories.

For the Tetrad colors scheme;

Using the tetrad colors scheme means using a lot of colors for your outfit and accessories. Except for some unique colorful designs, I don’t suggest starting with tetrad colors. We might go wrong with the shades, and because most of the colorblind people watching this course are male, and I don’t think we will feel comfortable wearing all of these bright colors suddenly, but for women, of course, it's okay. So as I said from the first, we will go minimal and simple.


Got an interview you need to nail or a first date you’re excited about? Blue is the way to go. The color conveys friendliness and loyalty, all while helping you project confidence. Lighter shades will keep you calm, while darker shades convey trustworthiness.

Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The color purple is often associated with royalty, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple also represents the meaning of wealth, creativity, and wisdom.

Wearing a purple or violet outfit says that you are confident about your taste and yourself.

Purple is one of those colors that most men do not wear enough of. It does a great job of making everything you wear look fresher and way less boring. But the color doesn’t have to be bright and bold.

In this part, I want to explain a few more colors that can help you to look more stylish. It is important to know how we can match these colors together;


Browns with orange are the colors we associate with the term “beige”.

Browns with yellow constitute the “tan” shades.

Beige is described as a grayish tan, a light-grayish yellowish brown.

They offer endless styling opportunities. Wear different shades of beige and tan from head to toe and add flashes of one color to really bring the look to life.

The cream is the pastel color of yellow, much as pink is to red. By mixing yellow and white, cream can be produced.

Because yellow works great with blue, cream does too. By extension, it pairs well with any other colors related to yellow.

Brown is warm and surprisingly flattering. It also pairs well with a wide array of colors and lends itself nicely to other trends currently sweeping through menswear, particularly textured fabrics and mid-century style.

What Color Should my Tie Be?

Choosing your tie color all comes down to the color of the shirt it’s going over. 

Ties are attention grabbers. When paired with a complimentary shirt, choosing a tie that stands out against your shirt, means picking a tie that's a darker color than the shirt itself.

For whites and other neutral colors, this means that almost any tie will work. However, for dark or bold-colored shirts, this can be more difficult.

 If you're wearing a black shirt, all ties except black ones will be brighter than your shirt, so you may want to pick a tie that strikes a bold contrast - for instance, a white one.

Don't pair a boldly-colored solid-color tie with a shirt that's also boldly-colored unless you're sure the combination works. Avoid extreme contrast - a cherry red tie and a bright green shirt, for instance, will be difficult to pull off.

For a patterned tie, pick a tie containing a color that's similar to your shirt's and not the same as your shirt's.

Matching a Suit to Your Shirt and Tie

Solid-color suits that are black, grey, or navy blue will work with most shirts and ties combinations. In addition, these suits are appropriate for a variety of occasions - from joyous events like weddings to somber ones like funerals. Most men should have at least one suit of these colors.

Match a dark-colored suit with a neutral shirt and a dark-colored tie for a universally-dignified look. Brighter ties can work well with dark suits but can appear informal if too bright.

Avoid pairing a patterned suit with a similarly-patterned shirt or tie.

Try to choose a suit that keeps the number of colors in your outfit to no more than three.

I suggest you watch this part of the course several times to learn some of the color combinations for your outfits.

Your skin tone is a simple trick to help you choose your outfit color set.

If you are pale or yellow-toned, opt for colors from the cooler side of the palette, such as grey, navy blue, varying shades of green, aqua, emerald, burgundy, etc.

If you have a deeper skin tone, you can pull off brighter or warmer shades of brown, coral, honey, gold, amber, taupe, etc., as they look amazing on this skin tone.

Go and get your favorite colors with confidence. For most people, blue is their favorite color, and as I explained, blue jeans are a fantastic match with all colors. You can wear any bright top to match your blue jeans to come out of your colorblindness cave for this colorful journey.
