Today, we will talk about how to dress better. In order for you to dress better, your lifestyle activities must match your colour wardrobe. Before we go further on life-style, I will like to highlight four basic rules for dressing better.
(1) Use the colour wheel : For someone who doesn’t know much about colours, I will advise your colour combo concept should be within the principles of selecting from the colour wheel and colour harmony.
For example : complementary colours and split complementary colours
The above dress are complementary colour combo of orange and blue colour.
The dress below has a blue, yellow-orange, and red-orange, this colour combo is a split complementary Coour concept.
So I suggest you go read our previous articles on colour wheel and colour harmony for better understanding.
2) It is advisable to play around three colours on your out-fit. It is more safer that way when you don’t go beyond three colours on your dress. Learn to restrict yourself to three colours or less.
(3) Skin complexion and tone : Your skin complexion and tone plays a role in creating a better colour wardrobe. Matching and organizing colour wardrobe to your surface skin is part of the equation. Mind you, your skin colour has an under tone which can be summarized as any of the following: Warm, Cool and Neutral.
The warm tone can play around colours like Red, Orange, Brown, etc…
The cool tone can play around colours like Blue, Purple, Magenta,etc…..
The neutral tone can play around Greenish colours or any of the cool and warm colours.
The colour your skin and tone, eyes and hair should be put into consideration for a unique colour wardrobe or outfits.
(4) Get a Calendar : Once you get a calendar, blank out your weekly, monthly and yearly activities. This will simply be a good guard to getting the right colours and dress that suit your life-style and activities.
