The Strong Impact Of Colours

Have you ever stopped to think about the colour of your clothes? When shopping for clothes, you’re probably processing 2-3 pieces per second until one of them absolutely stands out and makes you want to try it on. Colours play an important role while shopping for new clothes. Let’s understand the impact of colours better and why they play a vital role on a daily basis in our lives.

Finding the right shade for the right season

It is suggested that certain colour palettes are best suited for particular seasons of the year. During winters, it is better to wear colours that are sharp and clear. White, black, navy blue, and red, all look easy on the eyes. Summers are all about bright colour palettes. For lighter colours, icy tones are preferable to pastels. Avoid tones like beige, orange and gold. 

Colour Wheel to the rescueA colour wheel often comes to the rescue when you’re in a dire need to save a fashion mishap. After observing a colour wheel, we can see that there are 12 main colours ranging from red to violet, green to yellow, and all the way back to blue to red.These are basic colours that can be referred to as hues. Upon addition of black or white to any one of these hues, the range of colors that can be derived is virtually endless. The trick is in understanding the position of each colour on the wheel, how close or far apart they are is what makes them easy or difficult to coordinate.

Colour Combinations for Casual Style

Casual colours usually don’t make us dive into a state of excitement, but they’re likely to be easy on the eyes. Build your casual collection by adding bright colours such as shades of orange and green. These look good with the Indian skin tone and are also different from the white, blue and black that most men wear. Try wearing your blue denim or cotton shorts with a bright toned tee and white trainers. Simple but effective. You will see how much the colours pop and compliment each other.

Monochrome never goes out of fashion

A monotone chromatic colour scheme is simple and always  stays in trend. Take one particular shade and adopt 2-3 variations of that colour, creating an impact with the hue. Attempt to experiment with dark and light shades. The main ingredient is the pairing of the tint and the shade. Since the colours are similar, there is more room to differentiate by adding texture and layering. 

Colours and colour combinations are an important aspect of fashion and menswear. They add variety, personality and fun to your closet. If you are ever in doubt, pick a colour and don’t be hesitant to play around with the tint and shade.

Fashion Essentials for your Summer Collection

Every season has its particular characteristic when it comes to dressing up. It’s all about thicker fabrics, darker colours and simple patterns in the winters. But as we move on from the chill of winters towards the scorching heat of summers, our wardrobe demands for a change. Summer dressing should always consist of light fabrics, bright colours and bold patterns. Embrace the long sunny days and put your stylish foot forward. Here are a few tips that could help you figure how to do that without burning a hole in your wallet. From Cotton Shirts to Beach Shorts, here’s our pick of summer fashion essentials to help you look your best during this season.

  1. A breezy Linen/Cotton Shirt:

The most exclusively essential summer staple, a Linen or a Cotton button-down shirt which provides ample versatility when the temperature soars. It’s one of those classics that can’t go wrong during summers. Wear it as a dress shirt or a casual shirt, it’s perfect for any occasion this season!

  1. The Perfect Summer Shades:

Sunglasses are simply the best summer accessory you can have in your wardrobe. These come in different shapes and colours ranging from the Wayfarers to the Aviators and the new in-trend round shaped sunglasses. Opt for the style of sunglasses that complement you and your outfit.

  1. A Stylish Suit:

Be it a summer wedding or just any work meeting, when it’s about having to wear a suit, we suggest wearing something composed of a light fabric like cotton or linen, or any cotton-linen blends. You’ll be more comfortable and fashionable during the hot days while keeping yourself away from the sweaty mess.

  1. An Inexpensive Watch:

Summer’s are a call for long vacations which involve occasional trips along the beach. If you wear watches at the beach, we suggest sticking to a cheaper alternative watch as it may catch humidity from the water. There are tons of cool, low-priced, water-resistant watches in the market that are your best companions for the season.

  1. Go light on your Feet:

Give your socks a rest and show some ankle! Socks are strictly optional during summer. Loafers, Sneakers, Derbies, even a pair of Flip Flops look good with a bit of ankle showing and are sure to compliment your attire for the day.

  1. A Simple Hat/Cap:

Whether you’re chilling at the beach, out for a small picnic in the park or just taking a stroll on a sunny day, a good hat will keep your head and your face protected from the heat. Trust us when we say, a hat works better than a sunscreen.

  1. Simple, Comfortable Chinos:

Say no to denims and heavy fabric trousers for the months of summer. Chinos are the best lightweight alternative that need to be added to your wardrobe. They may look unstructured or boring, hence rolling them up to your ankle would make a pair of chinos look casually cool.

Plain and casual basics are core to building an amazing and eye-catching outfit. Hopefully, after reading this guide, we know you’ll be rest assured as to what kind of staple pieces need to make the cut for your summer wardrobe, the inexpensive way.
