Summer is the season for color, and, at least in my own case, that color is often overly coordinated. As we have discussed in the past, excessive coordination in an ensemble looks as though the wearer has tried too hard and though the effort is commendable the result is not. At the highest levels a man's clothing must be imperfect, no matter how hard he has to work to achieve that imperfection.
That said, summer is the season for color, particularly pastels of all hues, and the best way to wear them, as illustrated by André Churchwell in the photograph, is to wear several of them at once. Things do not have to match.
