Punctuate your wardrobe with color and you’ll simply ooze confidence and dapper style. Maria Virgin, the stylist behind our Ways to Wear It shoot, gives her take on looking the part.
How would you describe the man who wears these looks?
I imagine a hipster-type who lives in a big city and works in the cultural industry. The slim silhouette and splashes of color show that he’s also very fashion and trend aware.
What’s the key piece for this look?
A shirt with a contrasting collar. It instantly makes you look more dressed up and works as a fresh and fun alternative to ties and bow ties.
Adding color splashes to an outfit can be a bit tricky. Do you have any styling tips on how to get it right?
Pick one bright piece – sunshine yellow and tomato red is very in now – then tone it down with neutral shades like navy, black, white or gray to achieve a good balance.
