With the Autumn solstice recently passing over the horizon and the dark nights drawing in, the palette of the male wardrobe usually finds itself becoming darker – dark shades of greys and blues replacing the brighter, more exuberant colours we associate with the balmy summer months. But why do we feel a need to do this? Why lower the mood? As the mercury declines we should be doing our utmost to keep the wardrobe, more, vibrant, more, I don’t know…mustard.
Why wear Mustard?
Mustard is such a wonderful colour to fool around with and yet so often it is like the neglected child, left to play on its own while the more neutral (one might go as far to say boring colours) are left to garner all the attention.
And yet mustard goes with everything: stick on a mustard jumper with a pair of black skinny jeans or formal navy trousers; pull on a pair of mustard trousers and team them up with a white shirt and a black leather jacket; throw on a mustard beanie and do whatever you like from the neck down and I guarantee you’ll look good.
So forget about the usual navy blues, ditch the greys and start giving mustard the credit it deserves.
