Colour Clashing

Confessions of a shopaholic....a masterclass in colour clashing.


Ok it's not really a brand new trend but yes! Clashing is good this spring/summer...there's a right and wrong way to clash colours of course. Boring matchy matchy has gone out the door folks. Try new combinations and variations of hues - think outside the box. Green/pink, Purple/Blue, Red/Yellow, Brown/Pink, Blue/Red, Orange/Peach ... just get the hues right. What I liked the most about the wardrobe from 'Confessions of a shopaholic' was the presence of colour. Not just the wonderful bright colours, but the way they were put together to create fun and sometimes quirky outfits.

I've created a few examples with fresh ways to pair colours and more traditional colours that go well together but are not matchy matchy.



Tip: Be careful with the temperature of your outfit. Hot pink with Neon green is never a good idea, Ugly Betty is only adorable on TV. I find that pastels are a lot easier to play around with especially if you are not used to colour coordinating.



GREEN AND PINK







PURPLE AND BLUE
















RED AND YELLOW
