Spring is officially here! This is the perfect time of year to follow nature’s cue as color springs back into the lawns, gardens and wide open spaces by bringing pops of color to the forefront of your spring wardrobe. Spring’s colors are the perfect way to transition from wintertime’s neutrals to summer’s blasts of vibrancy. Whether you love allover bold statement colors like a vivid scuba blue dress or smaller pops of color in a jacket or cardigan in delectable fuchsia tone to liven up your latest outfit, you can find your favorites this spring and Color Your World.
Color is a natural for spring. You can add pops of color to your neutrals – beiges, browns, tans, grays, navy blues, blacks and whites in many different ways – from your lip color to your shoes to your scarf or bag, but we are going to focus our attention today on dresses, jackets and cardigans. As we begin, let’s recall what we know about color; keeping in mind that your favorite neutrals can be paired with virtually any color Everyone remembers the color wheel from school – the complementary colors are directly across from one another – red and green, blue and orange, violet and yellow – and bring out the best in one another. You’ve probably noticed how those with golden skin always look great in blues, while olive tones wear reds well and that harkens back to the color wheel complements.
Now the color wheel also yields other clues to wearing your own spring pops of color well. The colors alongside one another are known as analogous colors – like yellows, yellow-greens and greens – and also ideal counterparts for each other in your spring wardrobe. On the runway this spring was bold lime and even chartreuse combined with yellows, oranges and blues attesting to this fact. This formation includes color families (known as monochromatics) as well – the blues, the greens, the reds, and the yellows each in different shades always wear well!
Other great color combinations from the color wheel to make your wardrobe pop include colors that make square corners (90 degree angles) – yellow and blue-green, blue and violet red and the like – look beautifully bright when paired. Also ideally suited are the double complementary colors which form an X on the color wheel and the triad relational colors which form a T shape. Ts include yellow, blue, and red; orange, violet and green and so on, while Xs feature yellow-green, blue, violet-red and yellow and red-orange, violet-red, yellow-green and blue-green and more.
You may find you like to go bold, choosing to blend a set of color wheel combinations or maybe you prefer a bit more subtlety choosing black with bold pops of complementary colors. Now that you know the color wheel’s keys, you can choose your pops of color without fear! Pops of color, bold and beautiful allow you to show off your style as you bring the wow-factor to your spring wardrobe.
