It’s one of the simplest tricks. Go with colour on the lower half of your body and then keep
everything else simple. It’s all about balance. A breton. A fresh white tee. A contrasting scarf.
The polo is such a classic style you can afford to be bold with colour. There’s no risk of overdoing it here.
All you need to do is pick a shade. And we’ve got 16 of them.
A printed top does the hard work for you, pulling several colours together. If it’s a simple print
you can wear it with another colour. If it’s multi coloured, all you need to do is pick out one.
If you want to stick to one colour, break it up by mixing up textures. A lilac knit and polo work together
beautifully because the colour reflects differently from the wool and the cotton. Simple. But striking.
Clash your colours. If this idea fills you with dread, think again. Pairing high contrast
colour combinations can bring out more of each shade. The key is to commit.
This is cheating really, but who cares? A check shirt combines many colours
so you can play everything else down and still look summery.
