Imagine yourself out on the town with that good looking man in your life who’s wearing a pair of great fitting Euro-cut jeans, a cashmere sweater and a Bugatti jacket. No, you’re not in Italy, or even New York, you are in downtown Park City, Utah as it’s easier than ever to find high-style menswear at our local boutiques.
Look in any man’s closet, should he allow you to take a peek, and most likely you’ll see an array of neutrals that include white, navy, grey, brown, and black. The key is classic lines for a timeless look, but when shopping this season consider spicing things up a bit with this year’s color palette perfect for complementing those neutrals.
2018’s trending shades include: military green and dark hazel green; dark red, deep burgundy and aubergine; mustard and burnt orange; tobacco and camel.
For a sophisticated look just remember a little color goes a long way. Pair a tobacco sweater with charcoal, navy or denim. A military green jacket complements almost any other neutral. The goal is to add a little color to a strong neutral palette, but keeping it as an accent so it doesn’t overpower. To build your wardrobe, consider adding a couple of contemporary, timeless pieces each season along with one or two on-trend items.
