People tend to have a go-to color that they wear most of the time. Some may think that a specific range of hues suit their skin tone best, so they stick to that range. Others simply like a specific color, so they do not really care to try wearing other colors.
When it comes to style, you ought to try and experiment a little bit. While knowing what suits your skin tone and personality best is always a good thing, there might be a surprise or two waiting for you if you try a different shade every now and then.
There are certain colors that many people are ‘afraid’ to try wearing as they are not ‘easy’ colors. My advice is for you to give them a try and see how it works out. More often than not, the results provide a pleasant surprise!
There was a time when pink became the new black. I still know a number of people who wouldn’t touch pink if you paid them to wear this color, though. However, pink can really look good on practically anyone. If you want to take on the ultra-feminine look, you can go in pink all over. From hair accessories down to your shoes – pink will give you that soft look. If you want a more subtle style, then simply add splashes of pink to your ensemble.
Even men wear pink these days, and they can look pretty good in it! As they say, tough men wear pink.
Coral may seem to be too pale or bland for some people, but it is actually a good accent for other bright colors. Coral is the perfect color to wear in the next few months of summer. If you find it to be too blah for your taste, combine with flashy accents and you’ll be perfectly fine.
Violet can be a great color to wear if you want to change your look a little bit. It is also flexible in that it suits people of most any complexion. If you’re aiming for a softer look, violet is perfect on its own. Materials that are perfect for this soft look are usually knitted ones. On the other hand, you can look ultra chic and stunning in a violet evening dress as well. There’s more! If you want a cozy accent to your usual dark suit at work, put on a violet shirt or blouse.
Teal is a universally flattering color, and what is dubbed Indian teal even more so. Indian teal is somewhere between blue and green, and it actually highlights all kinds of skin tones. So, whether your complexion is light or dark, Indian teal will do very well for you. This color can be worn practically for any kind of occasion – from casual wear to office wear to party attire. If I were you, I’d keep a couple of pieces in Indian teal just so you can grab one anytime you are in a hurry.
I totally understand if your eyebrows are raised right now. Bright blue isn’t exactly the first color that comes to mind for some people, but the fact is that this color can add a splash of life to your look. It is especially perfect for going out at night, and it will definitely turn some heads your way. The best fabric for this color is the shiny silky kind – something you’d wear for a night out.
Isn’t magenta overdoing it? That’s what you may be thinking right now, but no, it isn’t. Magenta belongs to the pink family of colors, and it might actually be more comfortable to wear it – especially if you have an aversion to bright pink. The deeper and more toned down hue of magenta makes it a perfect color for practically any event.
Bronze is the perfect color for summer, but beware that you do not overdo it. Bronze is great as an accent, and might be too overwhelming if used as a dominating color. The idea is to wear splashes of this color by putting on a bronze scarf or wearing a bronze skirt. It is great when mixed with other colors, so don’t be scared to mix and match.
It’s a healthy vegetable, but it’s also a color. Eggplant is a mixture of blue and red, and is another great color that matches practically any skin tone. It is also very flexible that you can wear this color in the summer and wear it in the fall as well.
The world is full of color, why don’t you go out of your comfort zone and try adding splashes of new color to your wardrobe? Unless you try it, you’ll never really know if it will look good on you!
