These Are The Colours To Wear During The Holidays | Clozette

Once the festive season kicks in, one thing we plan out besides the gifts we're giving out is our outfits. But with the holidays being overwhelmingly colourful on its own, coming up with your outfits for the season can be a real bummer. So what's the key to a perfectly curated holiday OOTD? Getting your colours right, of course!

If you're mind is buzzing with green and red and you're worried of being washed out in all the festive scene, here are the best colours to wear for the holidays that will surely make you stand out from the Christmas card. 

--------------------------

Peachy Pink


The festive season is where colours shout their loudest. And the best way to provide contrast from your surroundings is to wear an item of clothing with a subtle touch of colour. Going for a peachy pink makes it easier to stand out from a sea of green and red without looking too strong or too muted. 
--------------------------

Violet



Do not confuse your purples and aubergines with violet, ladies! This bright variation of the shade is not only perfect for power-dressing, but it shapes up nicely in the midst of holiday colours as well. As a shade opposite green and red in the colour wheel, this complements the two colours without looking too much on the eyes and provides an elegant, unconventionally refreshing overall feel.

Baby blue

Another subtle shade that provides contrast for the season's colours without looking too washed out or muted, baby blue is a good alternative to grey or silver, which is the typical go-to holiday shade.  



--------------------------

Deep burgundy


So yes, we said that it's best to go for colours that provide contrast, but why burgundy? Aren't we going against our own rules by adding this to the list?

Red and green may dominate the festive scene, but going for a deeper tone of a classic shade can still give dimension if you incorporate it in the right fashion piece. So if you love your reds but would still want to give it some 'pop' this season, go for burgundy pieces in matte fabrics and structured layers to avoid looking like an holiday ornament and blending in with the background. 


--------------------------

Classic black


Not the colour you expected? Well, maybe you did expect it a little (we're looking at you, all-black lovers). Black may not be the most festive colour and it can come across as a little too late for Halloween, but this versatile and classic colour can be transformed for the holidays by going for structured and playful cuts and the right accessories.
