Winter color Contrasts
Grey, black, and brown are the usual winter colors that everybody go for, but in order to be elegant one must be different. Lately I have been adopting color contrasts while styling my outfits in order to enhance drama in my looks, making sure to leaving space for some basics in order not to look like a Persian rug. My favorite contrasts for winter are: Dark Blue and light brown; Dark red and dark blue; Black and white; Mustard yellow and brown. It is fun to try on new contrasts; since every time you do, you will surely discover new combinations.
I can’t express how much I love to set contrasts using dark blue; since I wear it all year long: Fall, winter, spring and summer. I do wear lighter shades of blue during summer as well, but I don’t mind wearing dark blue in mid-august. For instance, I have a dark blue tank top that I wear on white shorts, or beige trousers. These kinds of contrasts are very classy and I urge everybody to start giving them a try.
Next, Burgundy: My second favorite contrast, which I love as well. This color is usually worn during fall/winter and it gives instant class to whoever is wearing it. I love it with black, white, and beige; but this time I discovered how amazing it looks when mixed with dark blue and white.
I kind of created a go to “Contrasts” pallet, which summarizes my preferences. And I also recommend going for more than two colors, like I did in this post, where I mixed Burgundy with Dark blue, white and black. All four colors in one outfit full with contrasts; however, always keep in mind that black and white go with everything. Therefore, they are not considered to be real colors but they do form contrasts.
