Wearing A Suit For Work - Possible Color Combinations? *w/ pix* Need Advice!
This is my first post even though I am following this page for month... Haven't ever seen that there was a forum *like*!
I never really cared much of style for the biggest part of my life. This changed when I used to live in GB for 1.5 ys due to my studies. I struggle ever since and even though lacking the "common sense of style" sort of thing, I try to improve and look smart... However, I DO have problems to combine stuff or figure out how certain pieces of clothing work with each other, esp. when I haven't seen this given combination yet.
I am working in an office, white collar employee, where I have to wear a suit and, for sure, tie.
I use to wear black suits mainly, but I also own a blue, striped one and a grey one.
I usually wear a black belt and black shoes, nothing special. As shirts I prefer slim fit, T.M. Lewin, which are hard to get in Germany, color doesn't matter. I think I can combine my ties pretty well. At least... Anyways...
... I am thinking about bringing some color in my outfit.
I "know" the grey suit looks great with brown leather loafers and an equally colored belt.
I therefore want to get some brown accessories. I looked up the internet to find some stuff in my chosen brown-tone, which I know goes pretty smooth with the grey suit.
I need to get myself a affordable watch that looks professional.
I therefore think about getting this one:
(I think the watch is great for work since it looks classic yet smart, no?)
The other Question...
...is where my lack of sence, how to combine things, into play:
Is it possible to wear this exact same accessories, so all brown, with a black suit?
What about a blue one (naviish with very small white stripes?)
I just can not assess wether I'd make myself a fool combining the black and brown or if it might even look good.
Thx for your help.
Every comment is highly appreciated.
