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.
