VIOLET: A streak of sophistication
Whether you step out in a formal suit or a casual jacket, you will reflect a sense of uniqueness with your fashion statement. In the past, the colour was associated with royalty and opulence, and today it is considered ideal for anyone with a creative bent of mind, and with a passion for the arts. Don’t hold back from adding hints of violet with sneakers or a waist belt pouch.
INDIGO: Integrity and sincerity
Indigo is a tricky one in the rainbow, the rest of which is made up of primary colours. A mix between violet and blue, it is an easy-to-style colour that radiates power and charm. Wear a simple T-shirt or a hoodie, trackpants or funky sneakers, indigo is a ‘one for all, and all for one’ colour.
BLUE & GREEN: Go earthy!
One signifies the oceans and the sky, the other stands for nature. Together, blue and green reflect the colours of Mother Earth, and a sense of serenity and tranquillity. You can choose to beat the winter blues with well-fitted suits, blazers and overcoats in blue. Or opt for a latex blue jacket and pants if you love to experiment! A green bomber jacket or a green semi-formal suit could also make heads turn if you team it right! Just ensure you choose the shades right depending on the occasion.
YELLOW: Not a dirty fellow!
Yellow spells sunshine, happiness and youthfulness. Get set to charm people with a fusion of styles in Indo-Western. Layering up yellow over an off-white or white piece of clothing can add a subtle touch to your attire. Try kurtas with asymmetrical silhouettes in yellow, or team up a jacket in the colour to add a hint of brightness to your look.
ORANGE: A whiff of warmth
Are you a fan of bright colours? Don’t be afraid to embrace orange, a colour of joie de vivre, energy, adventure and warmth. It’s a colour that a lot of designers have played with, and one that can be easily added to the wardrobe with a semi-casual suit or with a tracksuit. Remember not to go overboard with the styling, and keep accessories to the bare minimum.
RED: Rave over ravishing red
It’s as much a colour of love and passion, as it is for courage and danger. But rest assured, there’s no danger in experimenting with red in a man’s wardrobe! Go for classic checks in red, teamed up with a solid colour, or add a dash of the red with a simple jacket on a black ensemble, and you’ll win hearts. The key is to keep it simple.
ALL WHITE: At peace with white
White is integral to VIBGYOR, science can tell. But let us also tell you that white is indispensable to the world of fashion! As a colour that represents peace, purity and innocence, pristine whites are a must-have in a man’s wardrobe. Suits to tracksuits, shirts to shoes, and sweaters to sweatshirts — the colour white serves right for all seasons, and all reasons!
