3 Fool-Proof Color Combinations
Kick your wardrobe up a few notches with these dynamic duos.
Give your wardrobe a sharp punch this spring by adding some surplus style. Call it olive drab, army green or simply olive, but the rich shade of green has been enjoying a quiet resurgence as of late and it seems right for the time. We're all for bold colors and daring prints, but there's something about this classic and masculine color—it's a deep color, but it almost on the verge of beige. Meaning it works as a neutral. Pull on a piece or two and you look cool, modern and like you've got your shit together enough to stand apart from the crowd without calling too much attention to yourself. These shades of green pair particularly well with saturated blues and denim (or black denim for that matter) as well as standard khaki chinos or shirts in various shades of grey. Find a piece or two that suits your personal style and then rock it all through the spring and summer and right into next fall.
