BLUE – THE COLOR BLUE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A POPULAR COLOR IN FASHION. ITS TRANQUIL HUES SPEAK PEACE AND STILLNESS. TO KEEP IN LINE WITH THE FASHION TREND OF BRIGHT COLORS, IT’S BEST TO PAIR BLUES WITH CONTRASTING SHADES OF THE SAME COLOR OR WHITE.

Yellow – This cheerful and attention grabbing color is considered to be an optimistic hue. When wearing this color, keep in mind that this color can be more over powering for people to take in. It’s best to wear one yellow item or leave it to the accessories. The rest of your outfit should be a neutral color. None of us want to look like clowns when we step into the next board meeting.

Red – This color has always been seen as a color that sparks intense emotions. This is also a color of love. Women who are seeking the attention of a current or prospective suitor should wear red.  A great way to work red into your wardrobe is to layer your look by wearing a blazer over a colored shirt or sweater.

 

Although many people choose to stick with the black, white and grays because these colors are a part of their wardrobe comfort zones, it can be rewarding to step out and try new colors. You will find that it is easy to build outfits around brighter colors while incorporating neutral colors. Just follow these simple style types and you are on your way to being a style trendsetter.
