How To Wear Colors

We’ve already talked quite a lot about colors, how to dress in scale and how to work the pastels. But as doing new things demands some reminding and encouraging, let’s deal with how to wear colors once more!

Why should you wear colors?

We know that some people are just not  meant to wear colors and that’s okey. But for all doubters out there, or all of you who are curious but don’t know how to go on about it, this one’s for you! Colors are not only a fun way of adding life to Beauty Pastelsyour outfits, it can also be an empowering statement. Colors are associated with different emotions and feelings, and you’re not the only one that’s affected by the color you wear, the people around you are too. Yellow is for instance associated with energy, joy and intellect (just look at Chiara Ferragni’s outfit below!). Pink is healthy, happy and sweet. Red is love, passion and power. If you have an important day ahead of you, why not pick an outfit in an empowering color?

How to begin to wear colors

We’re not necessarily saying that you should opt for a head-to-toe colorful outfit (even though we love those!). What we’re saying however, is that you can begin small and work yourself up. By wearing colors in a small scale you add the colors and you get used to seeing yourself with colors. A scarf, an accessory, a bag or one single clothing piece can be a small step in the right direction for instance. If you pick a colorful top, match it with neutral colors to tone down the intensity. Perhaps orange with grey or white or even a nude color? The choice is yours really!

Do’s and Don’ts if you’re shy about colors

  • Do wear colorful accessories and single pieces if you want to begin small.
  • Don’t wear colors with patterns if you’re unsure about colors in general as you don’t want to have more focus on the colors.
  • Do wear colorful pieces with neutral colors such as white, grey, black and nude.
  • Don’t wear colors in situations you don’t want to attract attention. Colors are a bold statement and should be treated that way. If you’re uncertain, stick to what you know and love.

Folks, what are your ways on how to wear colors?

    1. Playing with colors through patterns and textures is a fun way to do it! People tend to forget that textures have an impact on how colors come off as too! But it’s a lovely way to be bold and daring the colorful fashion life! Xx

  1. These are really excellent tips. I’m admittedly slightly overwhelmed by bright colors but your advice is great…pairing with neutrals and keeping it to a single accessory are a great way to start!

  2. I’m not the best at wearing colors but love wearing small accessories! It’s such an easy way to introduce color to a look 🙂

  3. These are such great tips for wearing color! I love colorful outfits and feel the most comfortable wearing them, though I do love an occasional natural look, too! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead!



    1. Love love love monochrome outfits, all yellow or all pink is such a fun and unexpected statement! But if you’re unsure or you need to add color in the instance, adding color by a scarf is a great way of doing it! Xx

  4. My favorite ways to wear colors are on the eyes, lips, or for one part of my outfit. Occasionally I’ll wear more than one bold color at once if I’m color blocking, but I feel that all colors can be worn on everyone. It’s just the shade of the color and how you wear it that’ll do the trick 🙂

  5. For a while my closet was all black and white but I made an effort to add more color and now I rarely wear all black outfits!


    Tamara –

  6. I agree with your point that colourful accessories are a really great way of beginning to introduce colour into a wardrobe, for those not used to doing so 🙂
