There's no denying that having a monochromatic, minimalistic wardrobe is convenient. If you own one, then you know how easy peasy it is to build an ensemble when you're dealing only with neutral colours. But with the maximalism aesthetic on the rise and the comeback of eccentric trends from the '80s and '90s, you may be starting to consider adding a splash of colour to your collection. We say, don't hesitate! Trust us, it's possible to still look sleek and elegant even when embracing festive hues. Keep reading for tips on how you can introduce colour to your wardrobe without sacrificing visual harmony.
Pick a colour family
When it comes to adding colour to your wardrobe, the first thing that you should do is to pick a colour family. It means choosing various shades that have a similar pigment intensity. This will help ensure coordination and overall balance in your wardrobe. Knowing your skin's undertone could help you decide. Usually, those with warm undertones will find warm-toned hues like coral, tangerine and yellow suit them. And for those with cool undertones, frosty-like shades such as periwinkle, green and pale pinks are the best bets. But of course, it all boils down to preference.
Start with accessories
The easiest and least intimidating way to incorporate colours to your look is to start with accessories. They're detachable from your ensemble so it's not a very drastic change. As they say, begin with baby steps. First, look for a handbag or shoes that fit in your chosen colour family. Then when you're already acquainted with the shade, move on to belts and jewellery. When you start this way, little by little, you'll be used to wearing colours.
