Colours play a huge role in making an impression. They also have an impact on our mood and reflect on our personality. In other words, the colour of your clothes says a lot about you. However, we mostly choose the colours of our clothes based on convenience. We look for things we can wear with the rest of the clothes we already own. While this is fine, we end up owning many of the same items and colours making our wardrobe look boring. If you’re tired of the whites, blacks and greys, here are some underrated colours you can add to your wardrobe.
Tangerine is more vibrant than orange which makes it a great fashion statement. It might not be the easiest colour to pull off but if worn correctly, it looks stunning. Despite being such a bright colour, it goes well with many other colours such as red and yellow. Therefore, this is one of the colours you should have in your wardrobe.
Purple has always been a popular colour, especially for formal wear. It comes in a wide range of shades that are all fashionable colours. However, the traditional purple colour feels old and dated. Pastel colours have taken over in the past few years and pastel purple is a more modern colour to add to your wardrobe. It goes well with blue, brown, and mustard.
Since it’s an earth-tone colour, green is a surprisingly easy colour to pull off. It’s quite flattering as well and can be worn for a formal or casual occasion. It’s especially great for formal wear such as suits and gowns as it gives off an elegant aura. Therefore, you should have at least one green blazer or dress for a special occasion.
Pink is no longer the extremely girly colour we knew. It’s evolved into a more refined and fashionable trend and more people are rocking this colour including fashion-forward men. Millennial pink, in particular, is one of the biggest trends of the decade thanks to the internet. It became popular on Instagram which inspired more people to try the colour and it doesn’t disappoint. It looks good on every skin tone and works for all occasions.
The washed-out colour is gaining popularity in the fashion industry. Powder blue is another colour you should add to your collection if you want to create a fashionable wardrobe. It’s a pretty versatile colour that goes with most colours. For those who prefer less dramatic colours, this is an ideal choice since it’s quite subtle.
This colour sticks out like a sore thumb but in a good way. If you’re looking to make a statement piece, you can never go wrong with maroon. It’s more traditional therefore, it blends well in most settings like the office, evening parties, and dates. Since marron is such a rich colour, it mostly goes well with neutral colours like black, white, and tan.
It takes a lot of confidence to wear yellow and that’s exactly what this vivid shade evokes. It makes a bold fashion statement for anybody who wears it and captivates the room. However, this bold colour also exudes an optimistic outlook. It looks better worn from head to toe but it goes well with other rich colours like purple.
