5 Ways to Wear Colour

Did you know that there are 5 ways to wear colour?



There are 5 ways to wear colour from neutrals to mixing neutrals and colours right through to mixing colours together.


Here are the 5 Ways to Wear Colour:


1) One Block Neutral

2) Mixing two or more neutrals

3) Mixing neutrals with colour

4) One Block Colour

5) Mixing two or more neutrals


Let's delve a little deeper into each one. Remember, you don't have to wear the rainbow, unless you want to, it's all about feeling special in what you wear, so make sure to wear whatever makes you happy. There's no need for you to branch into the very popular neutral capsule wardrobe, if that's not for you and likewise, if you're not confident to wear colour yet, you can start with little accents through your accessories and build on that whenever you feel ready to explore more colour in your wardrobe.

1) Neutrals


Wearing neutrals from head to toe, in varying shades or One Block Neutral – this could be anything from shades of white, grey, brown, navy blue and finally black. Neutrals can either be calming and soft like anything in the ivory/cream/beige family to something altogether more assertive and formal with navy blue or black. Neutrals are really the foundations of your wardrobe and are where you will want to invest the most.

2) Mixing Neutrals


Mixing two or more neutrals is an easy classic combination – the easiest way to combine neutrals is with an animal print for example, or something timeless like a very classy beige and navy combination. Once you’ve got your neutrals sorted its easy to start combining them together. Note that only DEEP colouring types can successfully wear two or more dark neutrals together and LIGHTS will need to stick to the more delicate neutrals instead.

3) Neutrals with colour



Mixing neutrals with colour – it’s always fun to explore with colour (think rainbow ) and one of the easiest ways to add colour is to mix one colour with a neutral outfit. You can start of gently with colourful accessories, like a colourful pair of shoes, handbag or belt to explore different combinations without being too overpowering. If you’re feeling brave, you could try a beautiful red from your personal colour palette with camel (if you have a warm undertone) or taupe (if you have a cool undertone).

4) 1 x Colour Column / Colour Blocking




One block colour – you don’t need to think of anything complicated here, a dress in one block colour will do the job easily, choose from any of the best shades for your personal colouring type: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink, purple. Either go for a matching shoe, nude shoe or metallic shoe for ultimate style points.

5) Colour on Colour




Mixing two or more colours – this may seem a little overwhelming for some, but depending on your own personal colouring type (or even, the mood you are in on the day), you can choose whether to go for highly saturated shades or something more muted. A highly saturated combination would be something like a bright green with fuchsia whereas a muted version of the same would be khaki and salmon pink.
