18 Feb How to add colours to a neutral dresser’s wardrobe
Who doesn’t like colours but for the closet most people are scared to come out from their comfortable neutral shell. Most of us have a black, white, grey and tan wardrobe. Adding colour to your wardrobe can be a great way to update your look and express yourself. Here are some tips to make your wardrobe more colourful:
Don’t be afraid to start small:
If you’re uncomfortable with adding too much colour, small starts are just fine. Find an accent piece to your outfit. Bold solid colour accessories can add life to your monochromatic wardrobe. Bright patterned belt on a white shirt dress or a bright yellow bag with your all grey look can make it much more interesting. Then gradually add more colour as you feel more comfortable.
As the neutral lovers, we are mostly drawn towards black, white, tan or grey. But we can add more neutrals with a brighter twist in our closet. Rather than basic neutral, colours like blush, khaki, mustard, forest green, oxblood or camel can be a safer yet bold option.
Now it’s getting bolder, we can go further more with monochromatic rather than mixing two- three colours we can play with different shades and tones. Like pairing a pink dress with red pair of heels or a baby blue shirt with deep blue pants.
The more patterns, more colours:
Adding colours via patterns is a perfect way to be more colourful. Patterns ith solid colours is a bold move. But it is risky to play with patterns. Be sure to match busy patterns with a solid colour or a subtle pattern.
The colour wheel:
Before purchasing colourful apparel, it’s important to know the colour wheel and which colours go well together. Analogous colours are next to each other on the colour wheel and share a common hue. Once you know your colour try to find which colour is next to it like if you are into red there are vermilion and magenta next to it. Or you can go with complimentary colours which are opposite to each other in colour wheel.
Remember that adding colour to your wardrobe is all about having fun and expressing yourself. Don’t be afraid to try new things and experiment with different colours and styles until you find a look that you love.
