Blue (and Pink) Monday

Eye-catching. Yes. Bold. Yes again. Aaaaah I love bright colour combinations. Wearing bright colours almost guarantees one stands out in a crowd. And yes, I can deal with standing out with a touch of femininity and intrigue. What is essential when wearing bright colours, is how you put your look together. Since bright colours are always trendy in the warmer months, everyone is tempted to obtain a few. Here are a few tips when you brightening up you summer wardrobe:

Pick shades which flatter your skin and hair tone. Always remember that the only colours and pieces which are trendy are ones which flatter you. If your face is pale, steer clear of yellow and orange. Instead, you should look to pink and blue shades.

Shop around for budget pieces. Remember that bright colours aren’t trendy all year round and as such, you don’t want to spend too much money. Buy a few bright pieces which you can then mix with neutral shades to create different looks.

Make sure the pieces fit you well. Bright colours tend to make one look larger than they actually are so the correct fit is essential.

Keep accessories simple and basic as you do not want to look like an overdone rainbow.

And to sum it up, if you are in doubt of how to pair bright colours, stick to the basic colour blocking rules, and you’ll be perfectly fine (make that damn fine)! I’ve kept my look today quite plain, as the colours I’m wearing are statement enough. Hope this post helps you find some inspiration.
