3 TRICKS TO MIX AND MATCH YOUR CLOTHES

17 novembre 2016

How to get more use out of the clothing in your closet and matching them for the best look? Obviously, you want to dress the best you can, but keeping track of which colors,fabrics,texture match can be hard. However, I guarantee you: you can wear prints or colors even if you don’t know how to match them and you can do it without any chance of looking like a fool. Remember, fashion isn’t only about self-expression but also about versatility. This means that you should first reconsider an outfit fitting session once or twice a month to get the maximum use out of what you own in your wardrobe. It doesn’t matter how large or streamlined your closet is, if the pieces don’t communicate and work with each other, you will never be able to create a mix-and-match wardrobe. Taking time to create outfits is essential because it allows you to see what you may be missing in your wardrobe and it will also help you become more purposeful with your shopping. 

Secondly, regarding colors, even if you ignore the full color spectrum, and only look at basic colors, you still have a ton of possible combinations. For instance,it’s better to have some neural colored bottom like beige, black, white and jean. These are easiest to match and you can always grab, put on and go. Neutrals are colors that work well with all other colors. Plus, since they won’t clash, you can match them to any color you wish like red, blue, and yellow which are known as the primary colors, where all other colors come from. Therefore, primary colors can work great for a monochrome look, which means styling an outfit using only one color. You can also add another hint of color which keeps a neutral palette if you’re using blue,black, navy or cream to your look. This little splash of color will be enough to add a little pop to your outfit and make it stand out. 

By the way, it doesn’t mean you can only wear one colored item at a time. In fact, wearing only one colored item in your outfit makes it easy – it’s enough to give your outfit a bit of pop. But you don’t have to restrict yourself, go for color with corals, camels, grays and wore them with white/cream or chocolate brown tone. Now, it’s time or you to move onto the accent pieces. Accent pieces are what you will wear with your basic pieces and they are usually tops, blouses and layering pieces that you can wear underneath your jackets and coats. Like your base pieces, you need variety so while your base pieces are typically heavy in neutrals, your accents can be a mix of prints, fabrics, color or neutral shades. Finally, mixing and matching allows you to wear diversified and exciting looks even when you have a small wardrobe. Don’t throw away clothes that you are not in the mood for. Try them later or mix them through contrasting styles or accessories and you will gain refreshing look and feelings.
