There are many perks of having an all-neutral wardrobe. Without the conscious effort, you can easily look put-together in a snap. After all, muted, low-key tones–from whites to earthy hues–naturally look easy on the eyes, so it wouldn’t be too difficult to pair different pieces from your closet. While some men opt for louder hues, tonal dressing can definitely be just as statement-making as the bold pieces in your wardrobe.
Below, take cues from 4 gents on how to achieve the dapper neutral look!
1. Monochromatic Beige
Monochromatic outfits–in any shade–instantly give off a cool and sophisticated vibe. Steal this look by choosing a single base color as seen on model and influencer David Licauco’s beige ensemble below. P.S. Try to pair different pieces that have coherent hues to avoid looking too bland.
2. Florals and Neutrals
Who knew subtle floral prints could look this good with neutral shades? International vlogger Joey London takes on a soft look in this pale pink OOTD (yes, pinks are for men too!). Experiment with different prints and patterns, but make sure that you build your outfit colors based on the prints (think wearing a white shirt with a pink polo that has white floral prints) to still achieve that clean style.
3. Formal meets casual
Not many people think of pairing up a hoodie with a tailored blazer, but with David Guison’s style, it just proved to us that this added twist to an outfit actually works. Despite its laid back vibe, it can pass off as a smart casual, which is also a nod to the Athleisure trend too. The color scheme of grey with a hint of rose quartz made us extra-crazy about this look!
4. Pop of Color
If you’ve worn too many monochromatic outfits, then it’s time for you to add a pop of color just like Dany Dos Santos’ street style. With a hint of mustard under his taupe jacket, this look will definitely grab some attention while walking down on any street. Top it off with white sneakers, and you’re good to go!
