Grey and black. Create a muted but complimentary look by combining this subtle color variation. This is a great staple look for anyone with items that are probably already in your closet.
Brown and cream. The laid back look of brown and cream is a great option for casual and business looks. Stay in the warm tones to make for a more cohesive look.
Start by choosing your shirt, from there it’s easy to pick a pant since there are less color options then finally your shoes and accessories. This will make it a faster process, and easier to match.
