Blue is a classic color and hence they are one of the most used color in menswear be it suits or casual styles. Adding yellow to this classic outfit can give you a twist of individuality. But you will have to match the tones of both the colors for a proper balanced look. For example if you are wearing a royal blue suit overcoat then it is better to wear a bright yellow cotton tie, but when paired with dark navy suit the yellow should take a lighter tone. If you think that the yellow overcoat is too bright for you then you can opt for patterned styles since they have a subtler look than the solid styles.

Next to blue, gray is also one color that looks good with yellow. Gray being a subtle neutral color, adding yellow to it brightens the outfit instantly. If you are a person who thinks grey is a bit drab then pairing the outfit with yellow accessories can be a good choice to lighten up the outfit. Again you should match the tone, and hence grey is always a subtle shade it is better to keep the yellow also in subtler shades. Pastel yellow can work only with very light grey suits overcoat but for other greys keep the yellow subtle. A warm yellow overcoat jacket looks good with grey trousers and is complete with a crisp shirt and navy blue tie.
While black is a bad background for yellow gathering unnecessary attention, brown is the opposite of black. If you are a fan of muted yellow shades like mustard and tan then brown is your go for pairing. They work beautifully together may be because of the fact that the two colors are closer in tone. The brown allows the yellow to shine while still maintaining its part without the yellow overpowering the full outfit. A navy blazer along with brown chinos and muted yellow overcoat is a great smart casual look. Yellow also works well with wool outfits pairing well with the fussy look. Pairing a yellow overcoat with a pair of wool chinos and a t-shirt and cardigan is a cool casual look.
Green overcoat is also in closer tone with yellow and hence pair well with the color. When it comes to the shades the earthier versions of the green look better with yellow overcoat. These are subtle colors and hence best for formal outfits worn in winter season. A ochre or camel overcoat looks good with dark green suit. They also can be worn in contrasting pieces like a ochre sport coat with an earthy yellow wool knit vest. Both the colors look good on pants given that they are paired well with complementing accessories.
Burgundy and maroon is other choices that looks good with yellow give they match in tones. These colors are better for colder months. A earthy toned overcoat along with a burgundy or maroon trousers is a nice fall look. When it comes to more casual style then pair tobacco chinos and a plain white sweatshirt overcoat with a slight orange overcoat. If you want to pair a yellow overcoat with black go for full contrast like wearing the overcoat with a black t-shirt and black chinos and black blazers since this full black look has an inadvertent cool look.
