But First... What Fashion Rules Should You Follow?
Fashion doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, more often than not, it boils down to following a few simple and easy rules. Here are few rules tall slim guys should follow when it comes to fashion:
1) Only Wear One Pattern at a Time: Make sure you only wear one pattern at a time. If you want to wear a plaid flannel, your pants and shirt underneath must be solid. Just make sure you're only wearing one pattern so they don't clash.
2) Solids Can Go with Solids: While you shouldn't wear two patterns at once, wearing multiple solids is totally fine and way easier on the eye.
3) Pair Darks with Lights: Try not to wear all dark colors or all light colors. Pair a lighter jacket with a darker shirt, or darker pants with a light sweatshirt. Avoid being monochromatic.
4) Never Wear Navy with Black: Navy and black clash! Make sure if you're wearing one, avoid the other in the same outfit. Gray and black or gray and navy are totally fine, though.
Now that we've established some simple rules to follow, let's dive into some color combo options for you:
