Color Used Well: Red (Cont.)

After I posted suggestions for how to wear red, a friend came up to me and said “I like red and all, but how can I wear red? I don’t wear trendy clothes.” I then showed him this image:

The moral of the story is that you don’t have to be a rakish and daring fashionisto. Now, this gentleman is dressed very well, and I have very little doubt to his stylistic credentials (who the fuck am I to say, anyways?) but contrast the way he wears his red pants to one of the guy below. Everything is fitted and proper, if someone were to describe what he was wearing (without mention of color), it is quite traditional.

That shot of color is what changes it. If you don’t want to bring attention to yourself, then don’t wear red. Just don’t think that crazy colors require crazy outfits; sometimes the more demure the outfit the better crazy colors become.

Oh yeah, go to Kentaro’s blog for more images like this.
