When it comes to clothes, you know what they always say: when in doubt, wear black. Of all the rules of fashion, this is arguably the most popular; and for a good reason. This tried and true code applies to everyone: whether they are university students, young professionals, or CEOs; wherever they reside; and for whatever the occasion, event, or season. It is a classic and timeless rule that produces foolproof outfit combinations.
If you have, however, been religiously subscribing to this tenet year after year without fail, wearing head-to-toe black can tend to feel monotonous and just outright boring. If opening your closet every morning to hangers and piles of endless black no longer excites you, it might be time to inject some pop and color here and there with the help of the following tips.
Get to Know Your Colors
It is a known fact that certain colors have some influence over your psyche. So try different colors out and find out which ones make you feel confident, powerful, or joyous, as well as the ones that do not.
On a more technical level, determine whether your undertones are warm, cool, or neutral. Each kind of undertone works the best and worst with some colors. Knowing all about this is quite literally one Google search away, as there are countless articles, posts, and entries dedicated to helping you.
Work on Some Gradual Changes
Do not just throw out every single piece of clothing that you own so that you can replace them with new ones. You should not be in a rush to do a complete overhaul. Add some colorful pieces of clothing slowly but surely. Working on our first suggestion, get a feel of the hues that you like and that suit you best and start from there. The key here is to find items that you can incorporate seamlessly into your existing wardrobe. The fact that your current clothes are already in black will make it easier for you, too since black goes well with nearly every color.
Back to Basics
But where exactly do you begin working on these gradual changes? The most comfortable starting point would be with basics.
Your basics are your items of clothing that you wear all the time, and you know that these clothes suit you well. You always pair basics with just about anything in your closet.
With an outfit formula that you often go for (for example, shirt + pants + jacket), try substituting a basic black item with a different color but of the same design. This way, you know that the pairing will still work well and will always make you feel comfortable. The last thing you need is to be unsure of yourself while you are trying out something new.
Check these items out for starters, maybe they will give you an idea of incorporating more colors in your daily life.
