Colours Fashion People Love to Hate & Hate to Love

By on April 24, 2015

In the fashion world it is completely obvious that we always lean towards the same colours; neutrals. Neutrals are a safe bet, because they can be mixed and matched a thousand times over! From time to time we are reminded that sometimes colour is much more fun! But at times, it can also go horribly wrong. Here is a list of colours that we love to hate, and hate to love.

Yellow is a color that can go horribly wrong, or perfectly right. The problem with this colour is that it depends on a million factors, from fabric used, to cut, to style, and even to styling such as accessories, hair style and make up! I love Rhianna, but this piece here is just killed by the fabric used! The colour is completely doable if you pair it with the right pieces!

This is a colour that can be so wrong, but yet so right! There aren’t many factors that depend on this colour, but it always comes down to the material used and the styling. I mean purple velvet or purple spandex? That’s like a guaranteed fail, but purple chiffon is oh so right! I find this colour is doable if it is a flowy piece that is paired with pieces where the colors are neutral, that way the coloured piece calms down. But when it is paired with more statement pieces like we see on Xtina, it can be too overwhelming.

Ah this colour is probably the scariest colour. I mean if it goes wrong you can be compared to an orange, a carrot, a pumpkin… shall I go on? This is the color that makes a super strong statement but literally depends on EVERYTHING. From skin tone, to hair, to fabric, to style, to accessories… like literally EVERYTHING. The problem with this colour is that there are no specific styling tips, or material tips that I can add. It is a great splash of color to a plain outfit, and it could also be a great colour for an entire outfit. My best advice is you need great hair and makeup that maybe adds to the colour, or else the color will take on a life of its own and overpower your entire look; like we see in the picture on the left.

Colour doesn’t need to be something we’re scared of, or that we have to hate. We just love to hate it, because at times colour can make styling a tad difficult. Coloured pieces need to be paired with all the right things; one wrong piece can ruin the entire outfit! Sometimes the outfit can be flawless, and sometimes the effort can lead to a mess. Remember to have fun with it, and to never be fearful of things, just jump on in and take a chance!

I’m just a girl who adores fashion. I love to browse online, wander in and out of stores as if I’m in an art gallery and truly get lost in the art of creating clothes.“I bought a Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more.”(I’m a huge fan of Carrie Bradshaw) Is probably the description of my life, with a dash of sass! Follow me on Instagram @kenziecamxo
