Every year, between 80 and 100 billion new clothing garments are produced globally. Fashion weeks, trends, and fashion-inspired social media accounts are currently filled with colorful outfits, preferably in different combinations in various color tones and patterns. Many people think it’s too much; others love it.

Color is an important fashion tool for expressing yourself through your outfit. Whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or just want to look fashionable, color can help you create the look you’re going for. From bold and bright colors to subtle shades, color can be used to make a statement or simply add a bit of flair to your outfit, whether you’re wearing a cotton coverup dress or jeans and a simple t-shirt. Knowing how and when to use color in your wardrobe can help you create the perfect ensemble every time.

In this blog post, we share some tips on how to use color to transform and upgrade your outfits.

Take Your Time

Finding the right style and also rebuilding a wardrobe into a more colorful one takes time. But let it take time. Think of it as something to have fun with for years to come—even for a lifetime. Style doesn’t happen by itself; it takes time. 

So set aside time to test yourself between colors, patterns, and qualities. It’s just like anything else: The more time you spend on something, the better you get at it.

Determine Your Skin Tone

To choose the best colors for your outfits, you must first determine your skin color.

Skin tones are classified as warm, neutral, or cool. Warm skin tones are characterized by yellow, peach, or golden undertones. Cool skin tones feature pink, red, or blue undertones. Neutral skin shades have a mixture of warm and cold undertones.

For instance, if your skin has cool undertones and you want to wear a coverup dress, this outfit would look best with greys, blues, greens, and purples. If you’re unsure what your undertone is, hold up different colored fabrics close to your face and see which makes your skin glow.

By understanding your skin tone, you can make sure that you are selecting colors that will flatter your complexion and bring out the best in you.

Use Color to Highlight Your Features

Color is an essential element of beauty. It can be used to enhance and highlight your natural features, creating a look that is unique and tailored to you. Whether you are looking for subtle changes or dramatic transformations, using color in the right way can help you create a beautiful look that will stand out from the crowd.

From highlighting your eyes with eye shadow to using blush to add a rosy glow, discover how color can be used to bring out your best features and enhance your beauty.

Color Matching

Color is a great way to add vibrancy and personality to your wardrobe. By learning how to match colors in your outfits, you can easily create stylish looks that will make you stand out from the crowd. With the right color combinations, you can take any outfit from drab to fab in no time.

When introducing new colors into your wardrobe, find a color you feel comfortable with. For example, you can choose a light blue color. On the color wheel, blue is found between teal and blue-violet. If you enjoy and feel safe with the color light blue, add a teal or blue-violet for a beautiful two-color palette.

Also, make sure to use complementary colors, as it’s a great way to add depth and interest to any outfit. Complementary colors are two hues on the color wheel that are opposite each other. When used together, they create contrast and visual tension, which can be used to draw attention to certain elements of a design.

Color matching is a skill that any fashionista should master, so you should dive into the basics of pairing colors for maximum impact.

Consider the Season

The season can also have a major impact on the colors you wear. Spring and summer are the seasons for pastel colors such as yellow, light pink, mint green, and lavender. 

On the other hand, fall and winter are the seasons for rich colors such as burgundy and navy. However, you don’t need to stick to these colors. A pop of color can always bring a little life to a dull winter day, and you can still look fashionable.

Use Color to Create Balance

You can also use color to balance an outfit. For instance, if you wear a brightly colored top, pair it with neutral trousers or a skirt. If you wear a patterned skirt, match it with a top of a similar color.

Final Words

Regardless of how much color you choose to bring into your wardrobe or your accessories, we hope you’ll get some inspiration from these tips. We can all agree that light and color positively affect us. Take it at your own pace and start by adding one small detail at a time. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll go and buy that pink suit anyway.
