Stop playing it safe when it comes to wearing the same colors together. It’s time to step up your look with a bold new color story!
If you are looking for a new way to spice up your look try combining colors in a new way. We all pull the same top to pair with the same bottom—it feels safe. Your black pants with your grey turtleneck is a favorite outfit and your brown skirt with your white silk shirt are pieces you gravitate towards when you need to feel confident. It’s always a good idea to have those ready-to-wear outfits in your head. Repeating the same combination of “safe” colors can put you and your wardrobe in a style rut. It just might be time to shake things up. Remember the key to great style involves breaking some rules.
No need to go shopping–Have a good look at the pieces in your closet. Chances are you have plenty of options to play around with. Start by pairing 2 colors together that seem impossible together like red and pink or red and orange.
Red and Orange
Keep it subtle at first. Try the cool combination of green with grey. Adding a novelty shoe to he mix can be very chic!
Green and Grey
Two colors that seem too close in tone to wear together are dark blue and black. But if you are someone that whys away from bolder colors this combination is for you!
Black and Blue
Because the color pink is interpreted as uber feminine we tend to wear it with dark colors to give it an edge. Try pinks with your grey pieces. It is a lovely combination and perfect for the spring and summer months.
Grey and Pink
Brown and Light Blue
Dark brown is not a common color when it comes to pants and skirts. But every time I find a beautiful chocolate brown fabric I snatch it up. Chocolate brown is the other black but combines with pastels more gracefully.
Purple and Blue
I absolutely love purple and blue together. They would appear to be too similar to wear together but really pop when worn together.
Brown and Pink
The beauty of dark brown is it pairs so elegantly with bright fuchsias and soft pinks.
Remember variety really is the spice of life!
