Color Coordinating clothes Can be very easy
It’s easier than you may think to color coordinate your clothes and knowing what colors go together can give your wardrobe a whole new lease of life. You can save yourself a lot of money by working out how to combine existing items of clothing in your wardrobe and continue to make an impact at the same time.
A simple way to begin is to start by researching color wheels; you can easily do this by searching for one on the internet. Color wheels show you which colors work in harmony with each other and are a simple tool for sorting out your clothing. Colors on the wheel that are next to each other will compliment each other well but if you are looking for a more dramatic look choose colors that are directly opposite each other on the wheel.
Another good start is to sort out which of your clothes fall into the neutrals category. These include white, black, brown, navy, grey, beige and olive green. These colors work as a foundation and can be built upon with flashes of the more vibrant colors that tone well with each individual shade. Neutral colors will always keep an outfit looking smart and neutrals can be paired together for a sophisticated look – think beige and black or navy and white for a simple but classy looking outfit.
When wearing an item of clothing that features a print or pattern it is wise to pick out one color from that item to use as the basis for the rest of the outfit. So if you are wearing a blouse that is pink, white and black choose one of those colors for your trousers or skirt. You could also choose the same or a different color from the three in your blouse for your shoes so you will be matching but not looking like you are wearing too much of one color. Don’t forget you can also color coordinate your handbag and jewelry with colors that run through the clothes you are wearing.
When it comes to color coordinating your wardrobe you will also want to think about the color of your hair and your skin tone. Colors worn nearest to your face are best chosen to flatter the tone of your skin and don’t forget that some hair colors will clash with certain colors. Of course this doesn’t mean that you should never wear certain colors you love but just remember to wear them as shoes, trousers or skirts and choose the most flattering shades to wear next to your face.
