wardrobe colour help - too much blue

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I was hoping to get some advice to expand my wardrobe, specifically with new colour selection. I have come to the conclusion that I wear too much blue. Any photos to illustrate your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I live in a very hot and humid climate. I occasionally visit colder climates. I am also in the military and therefore do not need or particularly like wearing suits and I like to dress fairly casually in my time off. I have mousey blonde hair and a light tan and find that navy blue, darker greys and shades of white suit my complexion.

My usual dress consists of combinations of the following:
**Shirts
ss navy blue and light blue polos
ls navy blue polo
ls white or light blue oxford shirts
grey or navy blue tshirts

**Pants
cream or navy chinos
khakis
natural coloured linen slacks
khaki, tan, grey, navy coloured shorts
indigo levis

**Shoes
white canvas shoes
brown desert boots

**Colder Weather
navy blue or greay v-neck sweaters
navy blue windcheater
navy blue linen unlined blazer

Any advice to expand my fairly boring style would be greatly appreciated. I would like to keep the style fairly casual and low-key. Thanks for your time.

A few ideas:
Red-brown shirts
Shirts with patterns on, for example, white backgrounds
Olive pants

I like adding various shades of purple to my shirt collection. Seems easy to pull off with greys/blues.

It seems that the bulk of your blue is above the belt (shirts & cold-weather stuff) so try mixing it up there. A pink shirt or two will help a lot, and perhaps yellow as well ... and both will go well with blue as a bonus.

There really isn't too much bad with having a bunch of blue in your wardrobe, though.

For the cooler climate stuff, try having a coloured shirt (pink, yellow, whatever) perhaps with a pattern as well peeking out from under your blue outerwear.

Start working in some browns that will go with everything you already wear. Chocolate brown, camel tan, etc. Add shirts in pale lavender. Get some light grey in there.

I love being Asian. Not too pale, not too dark, enough contrast with hair and not too much - look good in everything.

Please wear and enjoy some orange, sherbert green and tan shirts for me, for I am milky white and can't wear these fabulous colours.
