If you’ve ever found yourself standing in front of your closet gazing from left to right trying to figure out “what goes together,” don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there. I have some simple guidelines to help you coordinate your clothing so you can get on with your day and look sharp.
Let’s start with suit colours. The three basic suit colours that you should have in your closet are blue, grey and black. However, reserve black for more formal occasions and not for 9 to 5. With blue and grey you should also consider various shades from light to dark as this will give you more options to wear throughout the year – lighter shades for spring/summer and darker shades for fall/winter. If you’re wearing a suit a general rule that will help you better coordinate an outfit is for one of the three basic pieces (suit, shirt and tie) to be plain or solid.
