Colours For Men

Men around the world are eager to know which colors match properly and which shades actually suit them best. Today, however, you'll learn what some of the most popular colors in fashion can actually say about your individuality. The results are inspired from information we gathered from our female readers and research in various fashion publications.

Although most of us don't really care what the opposite sex thinks about the way we dress (yeah right), it's quite entertaining to know which color expresses our personalities best. So read on to find out how you can bring out your best features with different colors and, in turn, please the ladies.

The color red is the hue at the long-wave end of the visible spectrum, evoked in the human observer by radiant energy with wavelengths of approximately 630 to 750 nanometers. Boring! Who cares what the color red literally means - right.

The color red evokes dominance, power and attention. Red clothing will definitely make you stand out from the rest of the crowd and will mark you with sexual energy. Red is a commanding color that should be worn once in a while, for those times when you really want to make a statement and be different.

Here are a few striking red fashion items you could wear to make your statement:
  • Red V-neck or crew neck sweaters
  • A sturdy red windbreaker
  • A red umbrella
  • A red button-down shirt
  • A red suit with matching red shoes (only if you're looking to do a little pimpin')

Peach and pink project an upbeat attitude and calming characteristics, as well as good health. Remember, these explanations are generic and won't apply to every man wearing such colors. So don't think you'll look healthier just because you're wearing a pink or peach sweater, although it might liven up your outer shell.

Here are a few peach or pink fashion items that can lighten up your appearance:
  • A peach button-down shirt (for late afternoon cocktail parties)
  • Pink was in last summer -- but won't be this summer.
  • A peach wool cardigan or crew neck sweater (with dark indigo jeans)

The color of darkness is undoubtedly the most popular color in fashion. A man wearing black suggests elegance, authority and power. When worn properly, black clothing also conveys neatness, simplicity and great versatility.

I don't know of any piece of clothing or fashion accessory that doesn't look good in black. Never hesitate to go with black - just don't wear all black, all the time.

White clothing is a sign of virtue and can give you an extremely clean appearance. This obviously implies that your white clothing should be spotless. White clothing can also point towards a higher social status, and looks very preppy.
  • A white button-down shirt
  • In summer, a nice pair of white linen pants
  • A trendy white winter/spring/fall jacket
  • For summer galas, a well-tailored white suit will set you apart
