Who remember’s the American contemporary R&B group from the 90’s called Color Me Badd?
That’s what comes to mind when viewing some closets. They are just begging for some color. Do have a closet full of neutrals but are a tad bit afraid to branch out? If so, introducing color isn’t as bad as you think. There are a several ways to take baby steps to introduce color, and before you know it your closet can be looking like a huge color wheel. I am providing some tips and hints to help you overcome your fear of color.
Tip Number 1: Stop using black as an excuse. Many people fall into the typical “Black goes with everything” mode, and therefore never branch out to try new colors. Just plain STOP IT and step out of your comfort zone! You can start breaking up the monotony of black, and brighten up your wardrobe with pops of color using one item at a time.
Hint: Choose colorful accessories that make a statement. Introduce colorful shoes, handbags, scarves, necklaces or earrings. You can also introduce splashes of color using your make up.
Tip Number 2: Stop thinking wearing colors is seasonal. While it’s a fact that every color doesn’t look good on everyone, don’t fall into the category of following old rules about what seasons to wear colors in. Instead, figure out what colors work best for you, and build your wardrobe around your individual style.
Hint: Be some what of a risk-taker and wear colors that span seasons, instead of thinking you can’t wear something in a season because of the color. One strategy is to find colors that you can wear all during all four seasons.
Tip Number 3: Get comfortable with new patterns and prints. Another way to slowly introduce colors is by selecting colorful patterned or printed garments. Choosing one piece that’s patterned can help break up the monotony of one color and tie your outfit together.
Hint: Introduce patterned or printed items on a small scale such as in shoes, handbags, and scarves.
You can wear anything you like. At the end of the day, it’s up to you what you feel comfortable in!
