Details Details: Colour Kick
So you picked up a poppy pair of kicks? First off, let us salute you for your good taste! Colourful sneakers are a great way to inject a bit of fun into your wardrobe. But now that you’ve got them home, are you wondering how exactly you’re going to incorporate a bright red, orange, turquoise coloured shoe into your look? Here’s a few tips to keep in mind:
WHITE T-SHIRTS ARE YOUR NEW BFF: As if it wasn’t already. The rock-steadiest of friends, a white t-shirt is a neutral that can literally go with anything. None in your immediate vicinity? A grey t-shirt will do the trick too.
KEEP YOUR BOTTOMS LIKE SWITZERLAND – NEUTRAL: As in, if you’ve got pants in bold colours, this is not the time to bust them out. Repeat after us: black, grey, white, navy, khaki, or cream.
PRINTS AND COLOUR? COULD IT BE? Yes! Think dark florals, plaid, gingham, or prints that introduce a minimum of new colours into your look.
WHEN IN DOUBT, REFER TO YOUR COLOR WHEEL: Remember the circle that showed red/green, violet/yellow, and blue/orange as opposites? It’s everything you need to know which colours work together.
KEEP THE ACCESSORIES SIMPLE: A pair of colourful shoes is already a statement, so don’t go overboard with the sunglasses, the headwear, the bags, the bracelet, the watch. One or two other details will suffice to mark your territory as a sartorial stud.
