Dress Colour codes

It is a bright sunny morning and you just feel like stepping out in that blue or navy blue suit. What else will accompany the chosen attire to crown off your merry mood? Blue attire suits both daily activities and your night excursions. It is now evident that people choose colours they identify with and feel comfortable in. I prefer wool due to the deep natural colour found in the fabric. Wool tends to last longer too.

The web reveals the existence of numerous colours that have been churned out by various communities from all over the world. A person’s choice of colour is closely associated with one’s geographical location, orientation or adaptation. However, a universally acceptable code commands our choices of colour where appeal is detected by eyes from every corner of the world. A good fashion show cannot fail to appeal to any keen or casual observer. Your dress code therefore goes a long way towards enhancing your general image and social outlook both officially and casually. A careful selection of colour and fabrics in your dressing greatly improves the impression you create in the outer world. Suggestions and hints are given here to help produce an exemplary look in you to strike that desirable look that befits businessmen or women.

Men tend to apply colour codes conservatively but are advised to try mix-matching and experiment on new shades of colour. You never know what colour will do for you and to you.

Navy Blue or blue outfits, moods and feelings

Outfits that come in navy blue or mid blue colour automatically strike a calm mood in both the wearer of the cloth and the observer. Blue is the colour we see in the waters of the sea (As a reflection of the sky in water) and the sky. The colour triggers a peaceful mood, a feeling of serenity, calmness or tranquility in the mind. The colour is claimed to have a calming effect on anybody who associates with it. There is an executive touch to this colour that makes it appeal to many fashion enthusiasts.


Ladies are advised to wear rose-coloured makeup to blend with their blue outfits for that perfect match.

That classic look that you desire will further be enhanced if you wear a light shade of pink lipstick.

Eye Colour

A feint cobalt blue or gold coloured shade of eye make-up will go well with your blue or navy blue suit.

Ear rings

These should match with either your eye’s colour or your lipstick shade. The size and design of the earring is however left to one’s choice.

Nail Vanish

Clear nail vanish is recommended. No hard rules exist here which implies that experiments are encouraged here. There are models who look splendid with nail vanish that matches their lipstick.

Hand bags

Choose a nice dark or dark-brown leather hand bag or brief case. Leather bags tend to be classy compared to synthetic imitations while imitations give a myriad of colours to suit your wardrobe.


These should be chosen in line with the colour of the handbag or brief case. Ensure a match between your shoe and bag.

Mix and match

Your blue suit requires a carefully chosen blouse or shirt to go with it. A poor selection of the two quickly waters down you general outlook. Take time to try out several shades from your wardrobe before you commit yourself. It is however suggested that you try wearing your Navy blue Suit with a Light-purple shirt or Blouse and a Red or navy blue stripped tie or scarf to strike that cool outlook.
