Learn how to bring color into your daily look. We know that black and white are infallible options that will never let us down. And they are for sure the easiest to combine.
If you consider that your style is very basic, and you always dress the same. Or with sober tones and colors, and you want to give life to your outfits. Today, we will show you how you can introduce color into your wardrobe.
Color is no longer synonymous with eccentricity. So, it is normal to use it even daily in the workplace, do not be afraid to resort to it.
The chromatic circle is responsible for grouping colors by nuances and tones. In the field of fashion, it helps to create combinations. All based on the harmonies and coincidences between colors that exist:
They are made up of yellow, blue, and red.
The rest of the colors that we know are obtained from this mixture to a greater or lesser extent.
To introduce these colors, you can do it either monochromatically or by combining them with white, black, denim, or whatever you prefer.
Have you already chosen a color? If you want to complement it with another, do this simple exercise. Start with the primary color you have chosen.
And follow the path that leads to the color on the opposite side of the wheel to find the complement.
Here we can find colors such as purple and earth tones or nudes, blue with orange, purple, and yellow.
And green and red, turquoise, and shades of yellow or orange. The possibilities are endless.
In this case, we do the exercise in reverse.
Once we have chosen a color or tone from the chromatic circle, we can select 1 or 2 tones by turning to the left or right hand to determine which one is indicated.
Here we can find combinations such as yellow and green, blue and green, purple and blue, and red and orange.
And orange with beige or shades of yellow, red, and violet, among others.
This technique combines colors that are close to each other within the wheel, so if the previous combinations do not convince you or you consider that they are too daring for you, this option is excellent because it gives you similar and combinable shades such as brown with beige.
It is a suitable method if you want to play it safe and avoid fashion mistakes.
Learn to combine colors
This is the main objective of this article. And for this, here we will teach you how to relate colors to each other. And to find those combinations that work. After this, you can go out with the certainty that you will look super good.
For this, we leave these options to take into account.
Combine neutral colors
We identify neutral colors as white, black, gray, and beige. These are those tones that we can quickly introduce into our look.
We can even take it as the primary color and start from there to include secondary colors. An example of this is to take white pants and combine them with a pink top and orange accessories.
Another option that, although it is not 100% neutral, if it is a basic, is a Jean. We can take it as the garment and primary color and choose another color to combine. Besides, denim will never let us down.
This style is also often called a monochromatic or monochrome look.
And it consists of dressing from head to toe in the same color or tone.
It is an option that works when you are not in the mood to put together a very elaborate outfit.
You can use the primary colors with striking accessories with many different colors. Or more vivid colors if you are already in the mood of wanting to incorporate color more quickly.
Black + White or Color
Black, as we already know, is a dark color.
And therefore, to take advantage of it and highlight the look, it should be combined with a striking color. Or with a light one such as white or beige.
Avoid combining it with equally dark tones, such as navy blue, red wine, or similar.
Since the difference between one and the other will not be noticeable. You could fall into an inconspicuous or dull image.
Give space to earth tones
Although they are not as striking as green, yellow, or fuchsia, they are also showy and outstanding.
And if you combine them with jeans and white or beige, you will get an excellent result.
Army green as the primary color
We can take this color as the primary color, as we explained in the case of black, including garments of any other color.
So, it is an excellent option. Because you would be introducing color from the beginning of the assembly of the outfit.
From a pastel pink (or any other color in this range of pastels), red and earth colors are perfect with military green.
Combine several colors
In this case, you can enter more than one color if we consider the accessories.
Therefore, we can take the example of white pants with a green shirt and royal blue or yellow accessories.
Whether in a bag, earrings, necklaces, or bracelets.
Just be careful not to include more than three, or the look would look overloaded and could lose harmony.
Mix classic garments with trendy ones
This option is fun, although, at this point, you go to another level. But don’t be scared. Because it’s about looking in your own wardrobe for those clothes that will serve as a base and complement to match the objective.
Selection of basics
Then, start combining. For example, jeans with a white shirt and a beige or maybe a navy-blue blazer. It all depends on what you have available.
The purpose is to combine different pieces of different styles. And as long as you have a neutral piece, the rest of the look will be very easy to put together.
Once you have the clothes ready, choose the type of shoe to use.
This may include a fashionable tennis shoe or perhaps some boots that are also very common.
Or even some high-heeled sandals if you want to stylize more or it is something more casual.
Never underestimate a good accessory since this may be the perfect accessory that your look may lack. You can easily and confidently introduce brightly colored pieces if you already have neutral colors in your clothes. Or if you have only selected one color.
Here it is not so much about quantity but about quality.
With the necessary clothes and accessories and in the right measure, but that they are successful, you will have an impeccable look, without much effort and without feeling so burdened.
Yes, how you read it, mix prints.
It is not a mistake of fashion. Although perhaps in other times, it could have been considered that way. But everything changes and evolves because this trend did too to be accepted and stay among us.
But do not take it lightly. Despite being an increasingly common practice, it is not that easy to do. So, there is an essential and mandatory rule in this mix. And that is that the upper print must have a base color that is present in the bottom print.
We illustrate you with an example: a floral printed blouse where we have the presence of emerald green, combined with a striped skirt with a yellow background and emerald green stripes.
There you have the base color in which both patterns converge and give harmony to the look.
In this same line, you must make the rest of the combinations where you include double print.
Different colored accessories
Another combination that was inconceivable in the past was to use accessories of different shades or colors in the same look because it was not pretty.
Nowadays, this has also completely disappeared.
So, you can calmly choose one color for the shoes, another for the bag, and another for the accessories.
Only these must match each other.
Take into account your skin tone
Another option when choosing colors is to verify that they go well with our skin tone or color. And it is a fact that there are colors that can definitely make us look more opaque or dull.
Unlike others, that makes us shine among others quickly. Once you identify them, you can take advantage of your wardrobe.
We hope that this will serve as a guide if you want to start incorporating color into your daily outfits and create more striking looks and give your style a twist.
So calmly go testing, and don’t forget to have fun putting together the best combinations.
