You may have a closet full of great options in blue and red, yellow, black, and green, but expanding your look with neutral shades adds instant power to your wardrobe by letting your favorites stand out against stylish staples.
“A classic color combination is khaki and white — it looks crisp and timeless on any man,” says celebrity menswear stylist Ashley Weston, who has dressed men like Jon Hamm, Liev Schreiber, and Kevin Hart. “Tans, caramels, and similar shades are great because they easily pair with existing colors you already have in your closet.”
From a career spent outfitting men of different builds, from 5-foot-2 to 6-foot-6, Weston has learned the importance of knowing your dimensions: “The key to looking your best, no matter your height, is to understand your proportions,” says Weston. “You want to make sure everything is well tailored and balanced.”
When purchasing higher priced items, she says, think durable style, not seasonal fashion. Stylish items will hold up to time, wear, and tear, making your purchase a worthy investment, rather than a splurge for a temporary trend.
“A camel bomber jacket, khaki chinos, a tan wool blend suit,” Weston adds, “are all timeless pieces that you can wear year after year and not worry if it’ll go out of style.” Whether you’re ready for a long-term investment neutral piece, or looking to fill your closet with great alternatives at a great value, we’ve got you covered.
