An unpleasant moment is that we all come: stay planted in front of her closet without knowing how to dress. A waste of time to start the day which does not necessarily cheerful.
Yes, it is not enough to know how to buy clothes. Mixer basic and heavy parts, harmonizing colors, is also essential for your style.
So today, little reminder about the colors … We had the opportunity to explain wear what colors and how to match colors (the part I is here ). But with the imminent release of our first pair of sneakers (with National Standard), some wondered how to integrate their outfits, especially because they have many colors.
So we will quickly review the basics, then I’ll talk about something totally new on the blog: the color reminders and material reminders.
The Basic Rules
Then I will immediately be clear: stop the escalation of colors. The challenge is not to look like a clown, it is useless to add bright colors or very original patterns if they arrive like a hair in the soup, just because you turn around in circles with basic well chosen, but give a little too simple looks everyday.
If You Found the Blog in the Last 6 Months …
Play safety first, and learn the basics of a good look (a garment to the right size, quality, with a cut that is you). Do not look for originality immediately, be patient.
- Prefer 2 or 3 colors dominant in your outfit, and no more (navy blue, gray, brown, beige, khaki)
- Think balance and harmony: bright colors should be offset by more subdued colors such as gray or navy blue
- Play the colored reminders to balance your look and structure (that is what we will see in the article)
If You’ve Read the Blog for Longer …
No doubt you’ve met a lot of the basics that we recommend. I imagine that now your old shirts too big and your jeans, which were not at the right level, are beginning to be replaced with quality parts and your size (ie d: often one size smaller what you’re buying before).
And maybe you’ve even started to rub you the strong pieces (leather jacket, combat boots, blue trousers farting, etc ) or at least basic … a little less basic (example: T-shirt with collar over worked, blazer in a more original material, coat with leather inserts … ).
Unfortunately, it is often at this point we begin to stagnate in its progression. We would like to try more original things but we do not really know how to go about it, afraid to build some consistent outfits. And it was even more afraid to do that is just beginning to receive sincere compliments from relatives and friend (s): especially we do not want to go back.
The two points that come up most often are:
- “I fail to incorporate colors or more original materials”
- “I can not integrate my strong pieces required to basics”
In both cases, a good mastery of color and reminders is the solution. So let’s go!
To Juggle with Colors
For girls, it’s almost instinctive: they arrive perfectly coordinated colors, to incorporate reminders in their clothing outfits. And the result is (almost) always clear: a shapely figure. Well yeah, they sharpened their senses by reflecting on their looks, while we were pierced our strength trousers sinter at recess …
A harmonious outfit made yet strong enough parts (electric orange coat, white pants, multicolored towel). The magic thanks to the recall of colors between the pouch that contains shades of the other rooms. Not to mention the natural makeup but chosen carefully. And we do not overload the color held at the shoes, which take the black sweater. The brown bag is there to provide an alternative to white and black (and brown marries well with orange or color hair of the lady). And bim, 0-1 from midfield!
You will understand, we took a little late: the exercise is less natural home. But do not worry, one day, the student surpass the teacher ?
Harmony and Recall Colors in Menswear
Good practice, how to juggle with colors, but not like a clown menswear?
Give Small Touches of Colors Together
The holding is balanced: it remains on three main colors (blue, white and green fir).
We stuff then holding with:
- another color: yellow, in small touches everywhere on the holding (buttons, braids of blazer pocket)
- cardigan who gets the white shirt, navy/black glasses and bow tie: it makes the connection between the different colors,
- new materials: poplin shirt, thicker cotton trousers and blazer, knit cardigan.
So if we summarize, the outfit is:
- balanced with a few simple colors,
- expanded by adding colors and materials,
- unified because additions of colors and materials are distributed and discrete, and there is a room that makes the connection.
It is this process that allows to reach the accomplished outfits.
Of course, this look is the extreme example. Do not try to give everything with Stalinist rigor! Too matching look, will understand that you spent a leaden compose your outfit, locked in your bathroom. This is an exercise that may appear complicated at first … but with practice, everything will become intuitive and natural.
The aim is to use the assortment and color of recalls as a tool to homogenize, but never as a goal at all costs!
Vary the Textures and Patterns
Never mind a simple example: a shirt, a blazer, jeans and shoes.
Put aside immediately the tie, watch and bracelet.
The raw denim jeans combined with a denim shirt is not too much. Although blue dominates the color tone is different. It is harmonious because the two materials are similar but not identical. They recall to each other without confusion.
The style tweed blazer campaign has contrasted with the whole. It brings color (small red stripes) and a new texture: the outfit is expanding. The shoes are a reminder to the blazer, again without the obsession to find the same color.
What also much stuff this outfit is the variety of materials used: leather, mesh socks, jeans, chambray, tweed. The same outfit, just on very smooth cottons, would definitely not the same impact.
Note that if you had the obsession of every match with tones each time identical, this outfit would lose much of its natural and simplicity.
The color reminders should be close, but again no obsession, and materials that vary! (In other words: a little out of your shopping habits, diversify your wardrobe and have fun).
Small note on the green bracelet, which a priori has nothing to do there: he has actually shoving the general harmony of the outfit. This is almost the smallest detail just say “oh no, I am not my head 30 minutes in the morning to choose everything. The proof? I have that green stuff that has slipped my wrist before I got too careful”.
In my outfit, the shirt makes the connection between simple colors.
There are reminders between the seams of the jeans, the watch,
a bluish color of camouflage, etc …
More … different materials.
Note that there are not as colors recalls. You can also play on the field of reminders to unify the holding.
To Integrate the Famous Strong Pieces
Once you master these small technical reminders, you can integrate strongest pieces to your wardrobe.
You can have a real favorite for a large room, but once purchased, it thickens when it comes to wear. To not pass for “fashionistas”, you simply mitigate it through the association of colors and textures. Again, you have to win in harmony, it does not sting the eyes too.
To get there, imagine the strong room (which by default is rich in color or materials) liaises with other parts of the holding:
- wear which describe certain basic colors of the strong room.
- wear which resume basic materials.
- and if the high part is of one color or material, include reminders through accessories …
Almost no basic but well found reminders, especially in accessories, to give unity to the holding.
Other tricks are available to you:
- When you integrate a strong piece, purify your maximum holding not that strong piece comes overloading
A well kept sober basic won with a wide pull as colorful.
- Use cool colors like gray, beige or navy blue that attenuate other colors
Many textures, but simple colors: And it goes alone!
I hope you see now clearer. The next article concerns on wearing sneakers rising (it gave us a lot of ideas this new collaboration).
