FashionThe Base Colour Edit: Know your neutrals

If there’s one thing Melbourne has mastered, it’s monochrome.

This month, man about town and one half of the dynamic duo Base Colour, Shaun Lyle, Know your neutrals:  shows us how to switch it up by adding neutrals to your wardrobe.

A neutral colour might not command your eyes like a pop of red, but don’t let it steer you from finding your best look yet.

So where should you start? Find something that makes you feel good. It’s important to exude confidence in something that is as equally cool as it is comfortable.

Experiment with steel greys and hues of blues and find your power colour. Play it cool or take it corporate in a navy suit, tie, pocket square or sock – it’s the little details that make all the difference.

Take it up a notch and know a neutral isn’t just a colour.

Textures such as suede and leather can bring a raw element to your look. Strip it back and give your outfit an urban edge a casual tee or sneakers to complete the picture.
