Game of tones

By Kasia Hastings, 25 April 2016

Tackling your tones might not be as brutal a battle as those in Game Of Thrones, but it still involves skill, guts and determination. From top-to-toe colour to unconventional couplings, these men aren’t afraid to experiment with their colour palettes. Here are five ways to wear colour and win.

Tonal Tyga 

A full burgundy look is a brave move, but Tyga is merely the cherry on top of this cake, as the rest of his crew have donned tonal tees in a show of full sartorial support. Wearing one colour allows the unconventional cut of his jacket to shine here, with black buttons and a longline T-shirt adding nice accents. Matching claret shoes are possibly a step too far but he gets bonus points for boldness.

Camel Kimye

If three seasons of Yeezy have taught us anything, it's that once Kanye has committed to a colour palette, he enjoys working it to its full potential. Off-duty, West confidently incorporates as many shades of camel into his and Kim’s outfits as possible. Here various cream, camel, beige, sand and stone tones are expertly offset with a pair of white jeans to make this matchy-matchy lark look all too Yeezy.

Joey’s bada$$ hues

An unwise man once said, ‘blue and green should never be seen’. That man was not Joey Bada$$. The Pro Era co-founder perfectly pairs a metallic blue bomber over a solid green base here and adds a grey oversized tee and Yeezy Boosts to complete this symphony of pond-like pastels. It’s a fresh take on some streetwear favourites that adds a fashion-forward edge, fit for the front row

Rudy Gay does all the greys

NBA player Rudy Gay should know how to curate his comfies and here he does a smarter take on leisure classics. He breaks up his traditional tracksuit with some good grey tones that are kept crisp with a white T-shirt and fresh white kicks. Slam dunk.

Becks’ black and navy

Not one to play by the rules, Becks up the ante here with a power pairing. Black and navy are often dismissed as a tonal no-go area, but are actually the easiest way to make a simple outfit feel cool and sophisticated. Here, he balances his palette well with a strong black-blue-black formation and adds a pair of grey kicks to keep things interesting. No one blends it like Beckham.
