Color Magic

Hoping your month has kicked off just fine darlings and you had a terrific week. You might have noticed I love bright colors from most of my outfits. Bright colors have a way of adding life just into any outfit. They have a way of enhancing your mood from dull to bright literally. Do you know also wearing colors whether bright neutral or cool can tell you so much about someone’s personality? Yes, now you already know that am a riant person…

Bright Colors
Colors like red, yellow, pink, orange and gold belong to this group. They are warm, bold, loud and can add a much required oomph! to other groups of colors. I suggest you combine them with other colors to tone them down or get creative and pull a block effect e.g. yellow and blue, red and green, orange and brown etc. However, you should be very careful while combining them with other colors…. you don’t want to end up looking tacky.

Neutral colors
Brown, beige, grey, black and white belong to this group. Earthy or natural colors. They are a bit conservative as their name suggest. They are perfect to tone down and balance bright colors. From my view point I believe they are the colors to gravitate towards when going for a crisp, classy and elegant look.

Cool Colors
Think of blue, green, purple, turquoise. Silver is also among this colors but I find it a bit warm and shiny. These colors tend to have a cool and calming effect. If used alone however, they tend to be cold and dull. You can spice them by adding a touch of bright colors or even neutral colors.

My outfit today can be perfect for the office. The color combination entails a burgundy blouse which is a bright color, a black pencil skirt and a beige bag which are neutral colors. The neutral colors have perfectly toned down and balanced the whole look creating a sophisticated edgy look.

There are so many colors that I haven’t mentioned here but I know you now get the drift of where most basic colors belong. Depending with the event, or season you can always select which color combination suits you best. If you are not sure of what to pick you can never go wrong with black combined with any other color. Black always wins Anytime

    I love at least two colors from every category, what does that say about me? I love the burgundy color of the top and the shoes, it shows boss lady is coming through. I also love that you broke the two bright colors with black, one can never go wrong in black. You look elegant-chic!
