A LITTLE CHAT ABOUT COLOR

Living in Toronto has all but given me a newfound appreciation for spring.  I always knew that spring was a beautiful season.  What with the flowers starting to blossom and the sun sifting in through the window a bit earlier each day, those moments are all part of the feeling of spring.  But when you come from a climate that’s always mild and start living in a city where it cools down in October and the cold finally wears off in April,  you truly, truly appreciate spring.

Such was the case this past weekend in Toronto.  Those temperatures finally reached 60 and friends, Torontonians were all about spring.  This got me thinking about spring in a style sense.  Spring has so much life within its season.  It’s truly remarkable, like the world is awakening and colors are coming alive.  Spring is all about revival of color.  You can see it in the cherry blossoms blooming on the trees, hear it in the birds that start chirping in the neighborhood, even the sun seems to shine a bit brighter (and longer).  Color and life is everywhere.

Mixing color into a wardrobe is something that brings life into an outfit.  Color draws people in.  Think about the last time you were complimented on an outfit piece of yours.  Did it contain color in some way?  It’s safe to say it may have.  There are reasons for this and when you safely and confidently execute a fabulous color combination, you know you’ve nailed it when others throw a compliment your way.  Color theorists tell us that certain color combinations, when mixed together, can be pleasing to the eye.  These colors create a sense of harmony to our eye, giving us that “ohhh, that looks good” feeling.  So which ones are those?   Which look best on you?

WHICH COLOR IS THE BEST FOR MY SKIN TONE?

With spring around the corner, there are plenty of color combinations for clothes to try! But when mixing colors, where do you start? Art in the Find has some of the best color combinations to try! Click to read more.

A quick trick to find out which color combinations for clothes are the best for you! Hold a piece of colorful clothing up to your cheek and look into a mirror, say in a dressing room.  If you suddenly appear washed out or see dark-er under eye circles, the color doesn’t suit your skin tone.  If holding up the piece of colorful clothing makes you appear to ‘blush’ or pinkins your cheeks, you’ve nailed a great color! 

SPRING COLOR COMBINATIONS FOR CLOTHES TO TRY

Not all color combinations may suit you best but now you know how to give the color a try on your skin tone, here are a few color combinations for clothes to try that work beautifully together.

  • Blue and citrus yellow | One of my favorite bright color combinations for clothes, blue and citrus yellow work beautifully together.  The two complementary colors play well with each other on the color wheel and also work great together in an outfit.  Try mixing a pattern with one of the colors, like I did with the blue striped top, and matching a solid with the other color piece.

  • Black/white and Pink | Start with a base of black and white.  It can be a black & white striped dress, or a black skirt and white top.  Than layer with pink, bright or light.  You can use pink as an accessory, such as the adorable Olivia did here, or you can use it as an outfit piece to create a uniformed look.  Black and white striped top and pink skirt? Yup!

  • Coral or blush with turquoise  | Sometimes when a two color combinations seem to err on the brighter side, a perfect way to seamlessly combine them is with one as the main outfit focus color (the coral) and the other (the turquoise), added as the accessory.  This can be done with reversing the color roles too.  But a great rule of thumb if playing around with color is new to you, is to add in a second pop of color gently with an accessory.

  • Lime green and royal blue | Both of these colors are super bold, but when paired together, create an amazing color duo.  Think about wearing solids in both of these colors and incorporating a print in your shoe or sticking to black to tie it all together!
