Is your wardrobe looking a bit beige? Many of us fall prey to the safe, simple colours we’re so used to wearing; blues, browns, greys and black rarely fail to let us down. But sometimes, what our wardrobe needs is a splash of colour to revitalise it. We’ve got some great suggestions on how to update your classic pieces with some exciting new colours with our foolproof colour combos. Are you ready to add a touch of excitement to your summer wardrobe?

Pink, stone grey and navy; a colour combination that works well whatever the weather. This particular combination looks great with a light pink shirt and stone grey trousers. They’re both versatile pieces in their own right. A good pair of stone grey trousers or jeans is a solid investment, and a great alternative to navy or black. This colour combination looks great paired with a relaxed pair of desert boots or loafers – our Barker William suede loafer in navy will add a touch of relaxed sophistication to the look – perfect for a summer night out!

Pale blue, khaki, and brown; A twist on the common combinations of blues and browns, a light blue blazer paired with khaki chinos and brown brogues is a failsafe combination. This look is perfectly complemented with a white shirt, and easily paired together with items from your wardrobe. Although these are colours not often paired together, we love this combination, and we’re sure you would, too. A pair of our Barker Fleet monk shoes in Burnt Oak Suede add a unique touch to this outfit.

Maroon, white and tan; In this combination, the rich, dark maroon is offset by clean white and tan, which brighten up the look and make this very wintry colour suitable all year round – yet another foolproof colour combo. We love maroon chinos and a classic white shirt – a staple that every man has in his wardrobe. Combine this with a pair of stylish handmade tan Barker Calder boots and you have a match made in style heaven!

Pale blue, navy and mustard; Not a combination for the fainthearted, but fun nonetheless. Mustard can be a difficult colour to factor in to a wardrobe, but it pairs surprisingly well with a dark navy and a pale blue. Touches of mustard yellow might make an appearance as a cardigan, a pair of loafers – even a shirt if you’re feeling particularly brave! However, this combination can be as simple as the integration of a tie or pocket square in mustard, if you would prefer to test the waters. A little splash of a bright colour goes a long way, and nothing says summer quite like a touch of sunny yellow.
