    i got a yellow polo shirt recently, but somehow i just don't think it looks right on me


    i have sort of dirty blonde hair, and with dark blue jeans it just doesn't seem right...


    any suggestions?

    Yellow polos go great with khakis.

    I suspect the reason it doesn't look right is because of your complexion, you sound like a lower contrast type, which means that dark trousers and a high-saturation polo are going to overwhelm your face. try khakis, or maybe a pastel. it would depend on how conservative/FF you want to come off...

    Black or purple pants will go with a yellow polo shirt.

    Try white trousers...Yellow is a very difficult colour to wear...
    I have dark hair and a mid-white skin complexion and yellow looks awful on me...
    I can only wear yellow in the summer when I'm tanned

    Most shades of blue pants should work.

    i have a polo similar to the one in this picture. british color khakis or medium gray trousers seem to look okay.

    Are you fair-skinned?
    I am ...Blue eyes , dirty blonde hair..and can barely tan.
    I avoid yellow, pale green, torquoise, burgundy, and dead white for shirts.
    if you can tan, that would help.
    if you dont tan, you can toss on a dark jacket to tone down the yellow.

    hope this helps.

    +1. I'm especially partial to white jeans.

    Nothing...return that along with your lime green polo.

    Kidding, I think grey with some bucks would look good

    Grey look great with yellow...White is also a great choice...
    You do need to have some tan to pull it off..
    It is like cream , a living nightmare...
    I used to weat that f....g cream suit and I did look awful in it...

    this makes perfect sense actually

    i have a pale complexion indeed, and sorta bluey-greeny eyes


    the yellow in that photo robot posted is pretty accurate in regards to the colour of mine...ooops, stupid impulse buy [​IMG]

    at least it was dirt cheap...
