I've previously discussed how to figure out what colors will look best on you, in which I use those colors as a guideline when styling my clients. If I find something that is perfect for them outside of their prescribed colors or if they are in love with a color that doesn't always work for them, I find a way to make it work! I believe that when we stick to only the colors that look best on us, we are conforming our style choices.
The other issue is colors have meaning so when you are in a certain mood or you want to accomplish something specific, the colors you wear should reflect that. So it will sometimes require you to wear colors that do not necessarily look best on you..
One of the colors I believe everyone should wear is blue. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth and heaven. It is also beneficial to the mind and body as it creates a calming effect. If you like to stick to your prescribed colors, you'll still have a great response regardless of the shade. Light blue is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding and softness. Dark blue represents knowledge, power, integrity and seriousness.
Beyond the positivity blue creates, navy blue is considered more of a neutral color, which I believe is because of its closeness to black. It's like wearing black with having a little more fun! Cobalt blue is a color you can wear year-round and I feel it is a "happy-medium" for all skin tones and seasons.
It's a rich and vibrant color, which is why I believe it works so well for just about everyone. Take this "Masterpiece" look for example. It's a unique summertime "going out" look. This Enza Costa hi-lo shirt pairs nicely with these Asos destroyed skinny jeans, as they together create an effortless but pulled together look. Not to mention, I am just loving these Gucci Liberty sandals! Yes, the shoes are the focus of the look but couldn't you see yourself wearing them year-round if the weather allowed it? I am sure you already know you can wear the skinny jeans throughout the year.
Research shows that denim was created blue because indigo dye is durable and has a dark tone. So do we wear denim in its classic color because that's all we knew until colored denim arrived or is blue truly a neutral color that looks great on everyone?
