A guide to the perfect combination

Your appearance is a direct reflection of your personality and plays a significant role in making that memorable first impression. Putting an outfit together is not as easy as it sounds, but it is not a Herculean task either. Cottonking brings you certain tips and tricks with which you can easily pull off that perfect look!
The important elements that need to be kept in mind for that quintessential shirt and pant combination are:

1. Right Colours:
Who says men can’t pull off pink?
Choosing the right colours to wear forms an important part of dressing up and looking your best. A balanced colour palette is the key to a perfect look and the right contrast needs to be maintained.
What you shouldn’t do: Wearing the same tonal shirt and trousers is a big blunder. Although wearing the same colour tone sounds like a safe bet, it won’t make you stand out. After all, who wants to go unnoticed!
What you can do: Don’t limit yourself to just one coloured outfit. If you opt for light coloured shirts like sky blue, white, beige or pink go for dark pants like black, chocolate brown, dark blue etc. Similarly, dark shirts can be matched with light trousers.
Colours like black, white, navy blue are neutral colours and can be paired with anything. They are versatile and work well with any shade effortlessly.
You can also opt for mixing colours that are similar to each other but also different at the same time like brown and orange.

2. Right Patterns
Checks on Checks is a big "no-no"
Pattern matching is another aspect where many people can go wrong. Checks, Polka Dots, Stripes add vibrancy and spunk to your outfit.
What you shouldn’t do: Avoid using patterns of the same size and kind together. It looks mismatched and creates a pattern-clash.
What you can do: A pattern can be matched only against a pattern of a different proportion in terms of size and density. Make sure that they visually complement each other. For instance, a checked shirt can go with larger-checked trousers. Patterns like polka dots, stripes, checks never go out of style. Opt for subtle tones with respect to prints and patterns than bright colours. A print/pattern can also be mixed with plain or neutral shirts/trousers for a sleek look. Experimenting with different patterns will also give you an edge over others.
Where to buy: Make a great pair with perfect patterns. Choose from a vast range of Cottonking - 100% cotton clothes for men. Get varieties in:

3. Right Length
Leave bellbottoms to the 80s, sleek is in.
The length of one’s pants can be determined by the kind that suits their body type. It also has a lot to do with personal style and preferences.
What you shouldn’t do: Improper tie length or pant length can make you look sloppy and shabby.
What you can do: The correct tie length is when the tip of the tie sits on the mid part of the belt. The right length is relative in nature. Anything too long that extends way below your waistband or anything too short that finishes above your belt revealing your shirt fabric is not appropriate. In terms of pant length, proper break is necessary. A pant break is the creasing of the fabric that occurs between at the bottom of the pant and your shoe. A slight break suits nearly everyone.
Where to buy: Wear your accurate size. Choose from a vast range of Cottonking - 100% cotton clothes for men. Get a size chart in every category only at www.cottonking.com
4. Right fabrics
Comfort and fashion is the key!
Teaming the right fabrics to reflect the right colour tone is essential. The golden rule here is that your fabrics should be similar, but with a little difference between them.
What you shouldn’t do: Mismatching fabrics is another mistake we often commit.
What you can do: With khaki pants, plain cotton shirts or woollens make a great combination.
Linen is another good alternative that is popular for its comfort. Linen shirts can be matched with linen pants. Cotton and Linen shirts have more subtle choices of colour.
For a more casual look, you can opt for denim. Denim shirts/trousers can be teamed with almost anything! Woollens have more earthy hues of colours, whereas fabrics like silk, nylons have brighter, glossy tones.
Where to buy: Wear only 100% cotton with extra comfort. Choose from our diverse range of Cottonking - 100% cotton clothes for men. Get varieties in:

Moreover the right colours, fabrics, patterns, length are all personal preferences that reflect your own style quotient. Following these simple rules and with a little practice, you can put together a great look and be a pro at matching! Go ahead and don’t be afraid to
experiment a little.
