Pick up your suit game

A quality suit is something that every stylish man should have in his wardrobe.

EACH should have a suit in their wardrobe, even if they rarely dress formally, because in theory there will be at least one (or more) times in a person’s life when he (or she!) needs to wear a suit.

A common fallback or default option for suits is a regular black jacket and black pants. Throw in a white shirt and this is the most common combination seen all over the world on most occasions, from job interviews to weddings, parties and so on.

In this article, we will try to show a different perspective on the choice of suits, or rather push the boundaries when it comes to the color of a suit and the flexibility associated with it.

In an increasingly metrosexual or trendy world, it’s important to have some understanding of suits and colors beyond the “ordinary” black suit and white shirt combo.

However, going beyond the realm of adding colors or even mixing and matching different combinations will also require a fair amount of self-confidence.

Correct tone

Black is preferred for obvious reasons; everyone, regardless of skin tone, goes well with black.

Thus, the average person often underestimates the capabilities of a suit if it is not black, because in his mind, when choosing a suit, the focus is on whether it fits his body and whether he likes it.

Please note that a mistake in choosing a color can go wrong and it depends on your natural skin tone.

Experts often advise choosing suit colors that go with your skin tone, because in most cases this works very well.

For example, light-colored suits will look best on people with darker skin tones, while dark-colored suits look good on people with lighter skin tones. This is due to the juxtaposition highlighting your own visible features.

This strictly works when it comes to choosing suits in the same color, as the jacket and trousers match.

When mixing the colors of the jacket, trousers and shirt, this is not necessary.

More varied assortment

Having one suit in one color is quite limiting and, frankly, boring for most people who wear suits often or want to wear them.

LYFE offers several different pieces of clothing to purchase that wearers can easily mix and match for unique outfit combinations for different occasions.

For shirts, choose cream, powder blue, and plain white.

As for the suits, you can choose from the standard black suit, brown suit, gray suit, navy blue suit, and brown suit. You can get one of them, or two, or all. Work within your budget and preferences to determine which color suits you best.

With them in hand, you can wear any suitable suit with any shirt. These are 15 combinations.

However, if you mix and match the two, you see a lot of combinations.

Some of them include:

> Brown jacket, blue shirt, gray trousers.

> Brown jacket, cream shirt, gray trousers

> Gray jacket, white shirt, black pants

> Light brown jacket, white shirt, black trousers

If you get every suggested suit and shirt, that’s about 75 combinations.

This is what American television host Steve Harvey calls “suit flipping” and is a technique that can give costume wearers a huge variety of clothing that can last for years.
