Do you own only black, grey and white clothes? Do you want to inject colour to your wardrobe to change something in your life?
I’ve recently looked back at some of the outfit posts that I posted on my personal style blog over the past 2 years and have come to the conclusion that I can’t get enough of colour in my life. While I’m a rather shy person who doesn’t like drawing to much attention to herself, I can’t stop reaching for brightly coloured outfits. I simply believe that colours can lift our mood and make us look 10 years younger.
With this in mind, today I thought I’d share with you a few tips on how to inject colour to your wardrobe to break out of the black rut. Of course there’s nothing wrong with wearing black if this is what you’re most comfortable in 🙂
If your wardrobe consists of only black, grey and white, I understand that the idea of wearing bright colours may be daunting. Don’t worry. You can start small by looking for bright accessories like shoes, jewellery or handbags that will certainly jazz up any outfit.
Know your body
While it’s true that black has a slimming effect, you shouldn’t steer clear of colours. Familiarise yourself with your body and use colours to accentuate the areas which you like the most.
Mix and match
If you’re nervous about wearing one colour from head to toe, mix bright hues with neutral shades. For example, a colourful skirt will look great with a white or black top.
Wear colours that are compatible with your skin tone
If you’re not sure what colour to choose, do a small test and hold different coloured tops near your face. The right colour will lit up your eyes and make your skin look healthier. Make sure you do the test under bright natural light for best results.
Confidence is key. I’m sure that whatever colour you choose, you will rock the look.
