Ok we all know for a wardrobe to be successful we need lots of neutrals and base colours and we aren’t going to tell you otherwise. However, this Summer it is time to give your black, navy, white and beige (aka) “safe colours” a shake up and by shake up we mean a quirky colour overhaul!
Now we aren’t saying that the classic combos of black & white, navy & red and other predictable colour combinations aren’t stylish or fashionable. All we are saying is they aren’t the only ways to wear colour this Summer. Maybe next time you reach for your accessories you may like to rethink and add a touch of quirkiness to your look.
In recent seasons we have seen a surge of colour into the stores that was often hard to find like; yellow, mint, orange and pink. Therefore, playing with colour has never been easier. All you need is some colour inspiration, visual reminders and a sense of fun as you play with your style. And guess what? We have done the work for you!
This summer give your style a shake up – try some edgy, quirky colour combinations and watch your wardrobe take on a whole new look.
Below are two examples of quirky colour combinations that we are loving this Summer, you may like to try one of these or pick one from the list below.
KHAKI & YELLOW:
SKY BLUE & RED: (as seen on Jordi top right)
Remember: Always wear colour combinations that suit your personal colour palette.
VC Autumn Palettes: (like Sam) need; warm, low contrast, muted colour combinations
VC Winter Palettes (like Jordi) need; high contrast, cool, clear colour combinations
VC Summer Palettes need; cool, pretty, soft, low contrast colour combinations
VC Spring Palettes need; warm, vibrant, clear, high contrast colour combinations
TIP: Keep it simple – don’t overdo it with too many accessories and prints. Remember the style statement here in this trend is the quirky and unexpected colour combination.
