Colours impact our mood. There is a connection between colours and emotions. Indeed, colours have a psychological and cultural effect on us.
Whenever we read how to match colours or what combination to avoid, it’s always complicated to sympathize or recognize ourselves in the articles.
You can agree or disagree with the writer, but the main point is you. Rather than being influenced by someone else, you need your brain to work actively. In the end, the way you match colours depends on your personality, your perception of colour. And, on your mood.
Colours tell who you are. And who you are defines everything!
However, we don’t listen to those who tell you how to match your eye tone with a scarf.
This is what we do:
We put the garments one next to the other to check the chromatic harmony. If we like the combination, we wear it.
Easy, isn’t it?
Are there hues “not for you”? That you wouldn’t wear next to your face?
If it’s a sweater, pair it with a contrasting colour turtleneck basic underneath. Of course, you can do the same with a jacket or a cardigan.
The way you combine colours changes the way they look on you. In fact, for us, it’s not about the colour per se but how you style it.
If you are a colour lover like Cri, you love matching all the colours of the rainbow! So, play with purple, yellow, orange, green, red. And mix them. Colours are a beautiful expression of style and an optimistic attitude.
If your personality is softer, understated, you can start with just one bold colour item. But give yourself a little time.
And consider a fundamental aspect: colours are mood boosters. When you feel a little bit down, put on a coloured garment, and your mood lifts.
As Kandinsky said: “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.”
