“Colors? Please… no…”
For the last ten years, men have been suggested to ditch the safety navy, grey and black colors to embark on a tempting but suspicious affair with some quite vivacious tones and prints for Spring. Flowers, pink, orange, fluorescent… Tempting ? Well, not for every men. “It’s a golfer look”, would one say. A cliché? Not really, but is it a reason to run from it? Not really. It’s quite understandable, quitting the stability of black and grey to flirt with those drive-the-attention colors is sure quite challenging.
Then, come the friend who dared… He did it, and he looks damn good. Tempted now? A little bit… But then again, “I’m a young professional, how can I wear these colors at work?”… Good question. That’s why we’re here for. For this editorial, we created four looks for different occasions. Without any doubt, you’ll notice that they all have a kick of color, but it never amounts to ocular assault. The key to successfully pull it off is a balance between tones and attitude. Don’t wear pink, if you can’t walk with confidence.
Without further do, here’s our guide to help you overcome your aversion to color this season.
