Neutrals: safe, nondescript and, dare we even say, bland? No more. This season’s menswear proves a palette of cream, beige and brown is anything but boring. Take charge in a trench; exude sophistication with complimenting separates; make your voice heard with flashes of rust. Here’s how.
The New Neutrals: 3 Ways To Wear For Men
Thought beige was basic and boring? Think again. Neutrals are upping the ante to cement themselves as one of this season's most interesting menswear trends...
1. Turn It In A Trench
On in one and you're done, a classic (and currently trending) beige men's trench is the fastest way to get your neutrals fix without even really having to try. Layer with complimenting tones or throw over your usual denim and t-shirt for everyday cool with added swagger.
2. Add Contrast With Rust
If you fear that all over neutrals will fall flat, add warmth and dimension with rust - it's contrasting enough to feel interesting, whilst still sitting within a complimenting brown palette which aids in creating an expensive look. For even more tonal variety, switch your usual whites for ecru for extra depth.
3. Take It Top To Toe
Seriously, when you find a neutral shade you love more really is more. Taking one rich neutral tone from top-to-toe looks seriously expensive: soft creams with a similar shade on the bottom works wonders - just look for variations in texture and fabric to keep it fresh.
