Are there times when you want to wear colorful outfits but you´re not sure how? Do you admire those women who know how to play with colors, wittingly breaking old rules and myths – e.g. don´t wear too much bright colors in an outfit or don´t match prints with prints – and you so wonder how they do it?
Wearing bright colors in an outfit is my personal favorite in styling. I feel very lively and upbeat whenever I´m clad with colors. However, I´m always anxious of making mistakes. I´ve enough guts when it comes to daring outfits but not too much to be fearless with fashion faux pas? I don´t dream to be a celebrity and be spotted by OMG! scouts – what was she thinking?
So how do I know that my color combinations are on the right track? I have a secret.
Mirror, mirror on the monitor, which colors should I wear?
When I´m hit with uncertainties, I ask my Mirror, Mirror on the monitor. I ask Color Scheme Designer. It´s a very efficient tool when it comes to color combinations. It allows you to choose several combination designs – mono, complement, triad, tetrad, analogic and accented analogic. It´s exciting to have tons of choices for color combinations all laid down in your very eyes.
Here´s another secret. I don´t use this designer only for my outfits, I also used it to design this website. There, now you know!
