Taking a Closer Look at the Different Colors of Fashion

  • Colors have been inevitable components of our daily lives. Colors carry different meanings for some people. For others, the wide variety of hues are like clues. There is also the “dualistic” point of view, referring to the “two sides” of every color - the good, positive side interpretation, and the bad, negative meaning.

    And in fashion-dom, colors are always a topic worthy of discussion.

    Below are different ideas of how colors are “worn” by trendsetters:

    Dark Colors. In a previous wedding you attended, you’ve seen red bridesmaids dresses. The next marital ceremony, ladies donned navy blue lace bridesmaid dresses. What’s with the darkness, you may ask? Dark-colored clothing is worn to make the wearers appear skinnier. Dark hues seemingly fool the eyes, making it look like the person or object has shrunk a bit.

    Color Connectors. You don't need to get back to kindergarten to memorize the color wheel, no need to fret about clashing colors. You will be able to create a number of trendy looking outfits with the few pieces you have. Try a scarf or a belt to “connect” together all those pieces of clothing that you wear.

    Color Freeze. It simply is not true that you cannot wear white clothing after Labor Day. You can wear white at any color that compliments you. If white is the hue which represents your personality and preferences, then by all means wear it throughout the year! White casual dresses, white fit and flare dress, white prom dresses - no one in this day and age is going to fault you for wearing a single color!

    What are your views regarding colors as they affect your choice of wardrobe? In essence, what color (or colors) represent you?

    In any case, here is a solid advice about fashion. Don't go on wearing trendy hues just because they are "in." Follow your colors, follow your taste, follow your heart. Maybe later you’ll find out - there are others who are already following you!
