Fall Fashion Color Combinations for Men
Combo #1: Plum and Gold
Deep tones like plum, burgundy, and brown are indeed a perfect match for the season. Mixing a deep, rich plum with a vibrant metallic is a perfect way to add a luxe feel to your look without much effort. Pair plum with gold for special occasions and situations leaning towards formal.
Pairing plum and tan is more than suitable for the everyday. Other colors that work well with plum are navy, charcoal, burnt orange, and of course, classic white.
Our favorite way to wear these colors together is by sporting a rich plum blazer or tuxedo jacket and adding gold accessories, such as a pocket square or a watch. You can also do the reverse, with a gold/golden yellow sweater or blazer with plum tie and accessories for a black-tie event.
Combo #2: Lavender and Tan
Combo #3: Blue and Orange
Navy blue and burnt orange (closer to ochre) is a similar, though more conservative, version of this look. Blue and orange are complementary colors and therefore work together beautifully. However, since orange can clash, we recommend wearing blue and accenting with orange. For example, match a navy suit with a dress shirt featuring orange patterning. Brown pants are also a perfect pairing for this combination.
Combo #4: Bordeaux and Bronze
This unique color combo is best suited for nighttime thanks to its rich, warm hues. Bordeaux and bronze is best suited for formal events rather than casual, but can be worn either way if styled correctly. For example, a killer casual outfit would include a Bordeaux sweater with a bronze belt and watch. You can totally wear this for a casual Friday or out to a semi-casual dinner with friends. For formalwear, we’d highly recommend a Bordeaux blazer with coordinating bronze accessories.
Bordeaux attire also pairs beautifully with black and white (say, a white dress shirt and black tie), rustic browns, and light greys.
Combo #5: Charcoal and Black
Because it’s a combination of neutrals, charcoal and black can easily be worn for both formal and casual settings. It can easily be dressed up for day or night, depending on what you wear and how you style it.
Our absolute favorite way to wear this combo is by sporting a charcoal suit with black and white plaid or checkered dress shirt. You can add black shoes and accessories, such as a necktie or pocket square, for an easy upgrade to your look.
Other Combos - Monochromatics
This combo is always on trend and looks sharp on anyone who wears it. It’s a surefire and easy way to look put together and coordinated from head to toe without much effort. Not to mention, accessorizing gets that much easier when you’re choosing pieces in the same color family!
This combination is perfectly suited for both day and night, formal and casual, depending, of course, on how you style it and which hues you choose. If you opt for a bold and bright color (like mint green and forest green), you can create an edgy business professional ensemble; whereas a dark and moody color (like light and dark grey) will instantly boost any formal attire.
Blue monochromatics are much easier to string together, as they tend to share the same undertones. For example, you can easily wear a pair of navy plaid trousers with a light bluish gray dress shirt for a casual Friday and look effortlessly coordinated.
Gray takes it to an even easier level in terms of coordination. In fact, combining different shades of gray is already a favorite method of those who design or wear plaid! We love pairing a rich light grey plaid blazer with charcoal trim with a pair of coordinating trousers. This combination looks totally on trend for Fall and is super easy to wear.
When in doubt, try out the combinations above or even experiment with your own! However you wear these colors, be sure to stick to a style that suits you. After all, the key to looking good is feeling good in what you wear.
