If you’re anything like me, you probably enjoy wearing the same colors no matter what the season is. However, if you’re really like me you probably gravitate towards earth tones all-year round. In fact, the majority of my wardrobe is full of browns and greens with some random pops of color for the days that I feel like switching things up.

Therefore, if you’re nodding your head because you can relate, then this post is for you.

Even though spring is less than a week away, I will definitely still be wearing my earth tones. Honestly, I don’t have much of a choice because my entire is wardrobe is full of earth tones.

Surprisingly, I’ve realized that most dark skinned guys tend to avoid wearing earth tones, and prefer brighter colors because it’s a known fact that we look good in those colors. Colors like orange, red, and pink, immediately come to mind.

However, earth tones are also known for complimenting our complexions, especially olive green!

Therefore, for this spring and summer, instead of buying a bunch bright colors that you will probably only wear once or twice. Consider, rocking some earth tones like shades of brown and olive green that you can wear all-year round.

However, as the weather gets warmer just make sure that your fabric choices get lighter and airy.

Also, earth tones are perfect to help you transition into spring because you can always mix and match them with those brighter colors to create an even better outfit.
