How to wear, match & pair yellow in menswear part 2

Colors that go well with yellow, number 2: Gray

Gray can be quite dark and dull but a touch of yellow certainly brightens things up. A lighter gray, or mid gray suit, work well with a pastel color. A darker gray flannel suit, for example, works well with the orangey mustardy sunflower yellow. Stay clear of harsh strong neon yellows or very bright ones because it's just too clashing with the rest of the gray, or you decide to combine it with another softer tone such as brown. Overall, if I had to pick just one shade of grey to pair with this color, it would choose the gray flannel.

Colors that go well with yellow, number 3: Brown

One of my favorites to combine are yellow and brown. They are both warm colors and they simply go together exceptionally well. For example, an outfit that looks good consists of a brown jacket with a waistcoat and a mustard yellow pair of chinos. Brown is the ideal muted background color for a yellow accent, unlike gray. It also allows creating enough contrast without being too harsh. Obviously, there are lots of shades of brown that contain yellow and because of that, it is very easy to combine. At the same time, the brown color remains a solid background without disappearing and being overshadowed by this bolder color.

Colors that go well with yellow, number 4: Green

The fourth combination is pairing it with green. I am a big fan of green in menswear, simply because it is very versatile and green is made out of blue and yellow, so pairing yellow with green is always a winner. It does not matter if you take a darker bottle green and paired with a sunflower yellow, or if you go more with a lighter green and yellow, or maybe a darker olive green and yellow.
