Bright.Style No.6: How To Wear Primary Brights

Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-0When it comes to spring style I like to have a series of bright coats (just like this red one) at my disposal to cheer up dull and damp days. Given my love of hue I often like to pair a statement coat with another colour – you know, just for that added dash of colour! Although it might been difficult to pair primary clothes together in one outfit, it’s actually super simple.Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-1Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-2The best way to pair primary brights in one outfit and avoid looking like a prep school kid or kid’s TV presenter is to lean on classic style details to add sophistication. I called on my best bud – the classic striped top – in a hero red colour from Joe Fresh, and a yellow Penfield x J.Crew jacket.Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-3Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-4The solid yellow of the jacket breaks up the graphic stripe detail of the top. I completed the look with dark denim, my favourite Daniel Wellington watch and a simple, clear pair of Warby Parker frames. What details do you like from this outfit? How do you like to wear primary colours?Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-5Will-Taylor-Bright-Bazaar-Mens-Fashion-Blogger-6

    I’ll get a pair of those frames. Hope you’re rewarded for the plug.

    As a fan of brights too – I love this. In particular I love the yellow raincoat. There is nothing better than a traditional yellow raincoat!

      @Rasmus – I bought mine while I was in America, but hopefully international shipping will come soon. πŸ™‚

    Perfectly on point once again! Clearly my favorite detail of the look is the frames since I assisted in the purchase and have fond memories of hunting for them around Manhattan. πŸ˜‰

      @Brooke – YEAH! Thanks for your help in choosing them, I am so pleased I went for this pair!

    I’ll cross my fingers. Just chatted to them, and they have no ETA.

    You always look great in whatever you wear Will. This reminds me though of being a chilc in my bright yellow sowester and wellies. Yes I am that old!!!! I do love that yellow parka and I can see how your outfit fits together pefectly as colours.
    I do also love your glasses, tres chic. Having recently had to get two new pairs as I now need reading ones as well as for distance, I chose one in red as it matches my hair colour when I dye it and one pair in burple so I can distinquish which pair is for which job.
