Where once red and pink were unreservedly kept separate in our wardrobes, 2017 brought them to the high street with riotous, headache-inducing coral hues competing with magenta as two halves of the same dress. But how easy are brights to pull off?
Mastering color combinations is tricky but the traditional color wheel is at hand to help harmonise our closets. So how does it work? Monochromatic or neutral palettes are an obvious go-to for instant chic and tonal dressing is set to be big for Autumn/Winter 17.
Analogous colors, those side by side on the color wheel, naturally blend into one another, while failsafe complementary hues are actually those opposite to one another – think lapis or cobalt blue with Spanish orange.
Or, simply spare a thought for how color makes you feel. Exhilarating zesty yellows are a sure fire way to bring summer cheer to your wardrobe. A sundress in a brilliant butter hue will be the sartorial highlight of any sultry summer getaway, but now it’s a fashion favourite for the colder months too.
