Are You Obsessed With Colour Matching?

Colour Matching Your Wardrobe This Summer

Something has to match something else, the colours must complement and not be an assault on the eyes. But what is the secret to co-ordination through colour matching?

Colour Matching – an obsession for you?

If you’re obsessed with being colour co-ordinated, you know how it feels before you step out the door. You take one look in the mirror to check everything looks right, otherwise, bizarrely, it won’t feel right. Colour matching can help us feel ‘together’ and in control, it puts us at ease and we wear colour to feel comfortable. Black, white and red are a classic blend, spring pastels make the perfect day look, neutrals and cream plays it safe. A lot of larger ladies prefer black because it makes them look slimmer, however at Vida Moda I am always on the look out for collections that make great use of colour and I’d love to see more larger women using colour matching to create a different look for themselves. It is amazing how clever use of colour can projet a totally different and confident image. One of my favourite techniques is to team a bright colour top with white trousers or a white skirt. This simple technique is powerful but subtle.

Colour Matching or Colour Blocking?

Those of us who are a bit braver will go for the opposites on the colour wheel, i.e. purple and yellow are loud partners in crime but they work. This is colour blocking which is very much in vogue this season, you can stick with complementary colours or you can “push” it a little! Perhaps some of the more extreme variations look better on the catwalk but you can still make some great colour statements yourself.

Colour Matching with Accessories

What if it goes further than matching jackets with trousers or shoes? Do some of us find ourselves crafting a look to the minutest detail, earrings, nails, eye shadow or lips? It certainly seems like a lot of effort but when the ensemble looks 100% bang on, we never forget it. So much so, that getting the right colour match for you can be a bit addictive but also easy to differentiate between times when you want to relax, veg out and be lazy in a striped top matched with floral trousers. You can, if you wish do a little more colour matching and accessorise with shoes and handbags!

In Summary

All of it says a lot about our personality. Those who don’t feel the need to colour co-ordinate are possibly more relaxed and spontaneous people. For a lucky few, mismatching actually works but it mostly down to the actual garment and how it fits, rather than the choice of patterns and colours. It’s all too easy to play it safe but choosing styles we wouldn’t normally go for or blend can rejuvenate our brains and personality. It’s a statement of rebellion or change.

Whatever we do with colour, it’s important to have fun. So the next time you find yourself matching a pair of earrings to a top, think to yourself – is it really that important?
