How to combine colours!

How to combine colours is, for many of us, one of the most tricky issues when picking outfits. Essentially, it’s not exactly easy to navigate your way through the infinity of colour that lies before us. So we’ve set out the rules in three simple steps for how to dress in colour, so it couldn’t be easier to inject colour into your wardrobe :) Shall we get started?

How to combine colours: here are a few handy tips for colour combinations in your outfits!

How to combine colours 1. NEUTRAL COLOURS: THEY GO WELL TOGETHER AND WITH ALL OTHER COLOURS.

Neutral colours: white, grey, black – they’re not exactly colours. They’re the opposite of colour. Therefore they mix perfectly together and go really well with all other colours. You can practically wear them with any other colours without disrupting the harmony of your look. So it’s very useful to have a good selection of neutral basics in your wardrobe: they allow you to create thousands of different looks while pairing them with different shades of colour.

How to combine colours 2. USE VARYING SHADES OF THE SAME COLOUR.

Using different shades of the same colour in an outfit allows you to create harmonious looks that are also colourful and original. And super chic! All you have to do is think of, for example, the tones of the colour brown. Pair camel, chestnut and beige all together. Or blue: pair navy, cobalt blue and denim blue together. And so on and so on. We can also add neutral colours to the tones of a single colour: white, grey or black. In this way we can break up the colour without disrupting the line of the outfit.

How to combine colours 3. COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS.

We can combine 2 or 3 colours from the opposite end of the colour spectrum (and related shades) in the same outfit, and obviously we can add touches of neutral colours too: white, grey, black.

Here are a few examples: Green and pink – blue and orange – yellow and purple – red, yellow and blue
