How to wear colours to make you happy
Choose a bright cheerful colour that you personally love. For me this week it was this green dress from a favourite Australian brand Kamarecollective (currently on sale here).
This was not the case with this green dress, but if you choose a colour that is not so good for your complexion it’s also OK, just make sure that colour is not right up at your face.
Bright orange is one of those colours for me – it always looks very harsh against my face so instead I have this orange bag which has been one of my favourites for years now.
Bag is from Save My Bag (available here).
If you do break up your outfit with neutral tones, it’s good to have neutrals in two places. Here my blazer is neutral and the boots also a neutral/brown colour. It doesn’t matter that they are not the same neutrals. Simply having a repeat makes the outfit seem more put together.
Boots from Golden Carrot Shoes Zurich. This site is worth checking out – Cristina (shop owner) has just updated it and you can see a whole range of her fabulous looks being worn by her. Home delivery orders are also accepted.
Tips for how to wear colours to make you happy summary:
- Choose bright cheerful colours you love
- If it is a colour that doesn’t suit but you love, simply keep it away from your face.
- If breaking up your outfit with neutrals – wear neutrals in 2 parts of the outfit.
