SPICE UP YOUR WARDROBE WITH BRIGHT COLOURS
Now that you have decided on two basic colours in your wardrobe, let’s see how you can add colour to brighten things up.
Remember the bright colours you found in your wardrobe, which were not suitable for your lifestyle? It does not mean you have to live without them. You can wear them in small quantities: a scarf, a belt, a blouse, a bag, and if you are daring, a pair of shoes. Did you ever own a pair of red shoes? They go with more outfits than you realise. they brighten up a grey dress, a navy suit, or a black skirt. Red also looks very fashionable with beige; a red blouse can work wonders with a beige suit
Another factor that can help you decide on a colour is the type of fabric. A heavy fabric projects a colour more strongly than a thinner, finer material. There seems to be mor of it. Take yellow, for example. In a wool fabric, it will be too bright for most of us. But the same colour in chiffon or silk is very soft and feminine.
Sometimes it happens that a colour unflattering to you is needed to complete an outfit. Let’s say you have a tweed jacket with a little bit of green in it. A green blouse or sweater would certainly complete the outfit, but since green is not a good colour for you, choose a green skirt instead – it is far enough from your face not to be unbecoming. In other words, keep an unflattering colour away from your face. This type of compromise is sometimes necessary to complete an outfit.
NOTE: Don’t worry too much about the latest fashion colour. It is never the only colour to be worn, even if it is the dominant one of the season. If it is suitable for your looks and lifestyle, by all means wear it. If not, don’t feel too bad. Remember that looking terrific is more important than looking fashionable.
