What color shirt and handkerchief would go with a yellow blazer?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

I just bought a bright yellow blazer wich came with a light bricky red/orange handkerchief. I was thinking about wearing it with white pants but i'm not sure about the shirt/handkerchief combination. Maby a dark purple shirt with what handkerchief? Or a black shirt? I need suggestions preferably with pictures and also if I should go with black or brown shoes. Thankis

Please post photos of you wearing the jacket. You may crop your head if privacy is a concern.

That's quite a bold color for a jacket. Perhaps something more subdued for a shirt -- basic white or a light blue would probably be fine.

I agree, a photo might help us determine the actual color and how you would attempt to wear it.

Here's a photo to help things out. The hankie came with the blazer but i'm not sure if it goes well with a black shirt. I like the black shirt combination and I must say that I'm gonna wear this outfit at a night party. So is ok the black shirt? Should I get a different handkerchief?

It looks to be at least a size too small.

Maby you can tell me what is wrong with it. I agree that is not the perfect size but other than that?

well, in short, you don't want to end up looking like this:



In general, the whole ensemble you have looks garish, in that you are going out of your way to wear pieces that are designed to simply attract attention in the douchey sort of "hey, look at my yellow jacket and white pants!" kind of way. But if that's what you're going for, I'm sure you will get noticed and people will compliment you on your interesting style.

Well as I said I'm gonna wear it to a night club party, I have no intention on wearing this outfit on the street in daytime maby as someone said with a light toned shirt....But in the previous case, would it be better with dark blue pants?

The outfit is beyond saving no matter what color pants you wear IMHO, and wearing it to a night club doesn't make the ensemble any better. It sounds like you are wearing it to attract attention, so I guess just stick with the white pants.

Just to help you out before you are beaten senseless by some other forvmites that happen to see your picture - this Forum is geared towards clasically tailored men's clothing, of which you have none in your picture. Maybe try the Streetwear & Denim sub-forum? Although I'm guessing they won't take it any easier on you. Best of luck.
