7 Ways to Embrace Colour and Create a Fun Wardrobe

Do you dream of a vibrant wardrobe but struggle to incorporate colour into your outfits?

Whether this is your first foray into colour or you want to embrace more shades, we’ve got all the tips you need to create a wow wardrobe!

From bold patterns to eye-catching tones, colour is the perfect way to add a playful twist to your outfits. All you need is a little Joe Browns’ know-how to wear with confidence!

Here are seven ways to embrace colour and create a fun wardrobe.

Start Slowly


Creating a colourful wardrobe is all about letting your personality shine through. If your clothing consists of beige and navy, then the idea of wearing a flamboyant print may seem a little daunting. But with our help, we’ll have you dressed in head-to-toe colour in no time!


To start your colourful journey, simply swap out one item at a time. Change a navy top for a beautiful blue blouse, step out in floral printed footwear or exchange an accessory such as a bag, scarf or hat. This small step can make a huge difference to your outfits!

Search for Inspiration


Are you a complete colour novice? If you have no idea where to begin, then why not search for inspiration a little closer to home? In fact, your home’s stylish interior could be the perfect place!

 

That red looks lovely in your living room but it could look even better on a skirt. Or how about the blue in your bathroom? Purple in your bedroom? Or green in your dining room? It seems you may already have a few favourite colours to try!

Try Out Neutrals


Say the word ‘neutral’ and you may think of white, cream and beige. However, neutral shades come in a whole host of hues, from khaki and blue to mustard and pastel pink. For the colour-shy, experimenting with neutrals is ideal!


Neutrals are a favourite for a reason: They look amazing in any season and go with a huge range of colours. A painless and easy way to mix up your outfits, pair grey with blue, navy with mustard or olive with pink.

Have Fun with Prints


If you’re looking for the most simple solution, then prints are definitely your friend. They’re fun, eye-catching and often made up of numerous colours, so they instantly add a pop to an outfit. There’s so many to choose from, so you can go as subtle or bold as you like!


Swap that white tee for a printed t-shirt to liven up your jeans or choose a dress with a fun floral or polka dot print. If you prefer an understated pattern you can’t go wrong with a classic stripe top, trousers or skirt!

Choose Bright Outerwear


Do you own a lot of black or navy clothing? If the answer is yes, then switching up your outerwear is a must for adding colour. By incorporating a bright jacket into your wardrobe, you can bring flair and style to any outfit!


Upgrade your black leather biker jacket to a tan suede design, or exchange your navy suit jacket for a bright blue blazer. While a multicoloured cardigan or bold jacket will add an edge to a top, skirt or little black dress.

Colour Coordinate Your Outfits


One of the challenges of introducing colour into your wardrobe is learning how to mix and match different shades. If this is something you’re concerned about, then colour coordinating is the solution you need to ensure every outfit looks flawless!


Build your look by choosing colour coordination clothes. To do this, simply pick different hues of the same shade. Whether you want to dress in blue, pink or zesty yellow, coordinating creates a cohesive colour-filled outfit without feeling too risky!

Add Analogous Tones


If you want to be bold with colour, creating analogous outfits is the way to go. You may be wondering, “just what is an analogous tone?” and the answer is simple. Analogous colours are shades that sit next to each other on the colour wheel and they look fabulous when worn together!

 

Some popular analogous colour combinations include pink and red, blue and green, or yellow and green. Whether you go for vibrant tones or darker hues, these pairings are sure to deliver a statement outfit!
