Basic use of colours

Since its Summer, why not add some bright colours into your wardrobe. Try experimenting with different colours to find out which colours suits you best. If you are new to exploring colours, start with a colour you feel most comfortable in besides the neutral colours such as black, white or grey.

Pay close attention to a particular colour that you are drawn to. Once you discover this, add it into your outfit in a subtle way. This can be in the form of an accessory such as jewellery, shoes or a bag.

Once you are comfortable with this, you can take it a step further by adding coloured clothing items into your look. This can either be a dress, skirt, pants or blouse.To keep the look sophisticated, I advise not using too many colours. Trying to incorporate different colours into your look,  if not done right, may come over a bit tacky.
Summer Yellow
1. H&M Pleated Blouse, 2. Rayban Cats 5000 Sunglasses, 3. Miss Selfridge White Jeans,4. Tissot Watch, 5. River Island  Sandals
If you are unsure about using a particular colour, an easy and simple way to do this is by combing it with black or white. These two neutral colours goes well with all colours. White or Black serves as a basis colour that helps in neutralising  and creating that pop-of-colour effect in your outfit.

As seen on the runway for the spring season of 2014, designers opted for a simple and yet elegant way of combining colours with black or white. When in doubt just go with your basic instincts. Always remember to Keep It Simple and Sophisticated ( K.I.S.S) and just have fun!
