The best dressed men rarely limit themselves to one or two colors in the day's clothing. The pinnacle of dressing well is, as we have discussed many times, the appearance of carelessness. Hours spent acquiring, maintaining and choosing one's clothes should be obscured by what appear to be unconsidered pairings in a day's dress.
Perhaps the easiest but also the most difficult way to appear careless is to minimize or altogether avoid repeating colors, using instead a neutral color scheme comprised of white, brown and grey with navy and no more than one other accent color. That is easier said than done - repeated colors require little thought to look good together, and most of us take the easy way out. But we should set our sights higher.
In the photo, Matteo Marzotto illustrates the neutral scheme with a brown overcoat, gray suit, navy necktie and red and white striped shirt.
