    Branching out into other colors



    I looked into my closet the other day and realized I don't have a large variety of color in my clothes. 90% of my clothes are gray, black, brown, or shades of blue. I've got maybe 5 articles of clothing that have other colors and I really need to branch out. I've got tan skin and alot of colors I feel like I don't look good in, or draw too much attention to myself (which I don't enjoy). How did you all break out into trying new colors?

    Honestly, I say just go for it. I mean, be a bit deliberate when you're shopping and avoid the neutrals/blues - but don't worry so much about it after that. Start picking up pieces with color and you'll figure out how to make them work.


    Here's a couple outfits of mine that I posted to the WNTW Facebook Wall (yes, I watch the show - sometimes) that show off some color.

      It seems like a big jump, but depending on what kind of wardrobe you are talking (business vs. casual) my first branching out was into red. A red polo, tie with some red in it, a casual red t-shirt, or a red v-neck sweater. As long as it is moderated by some other more neutral colors (which you already have) it just works. I always get compliments in red.


      I dig Peter's 2nd photo. Green doesn't get enough play.

        start from blue and go either direction on the color wheel to green or purple, and then keep going once you get comfortable with those. don't forget to try different values and shades
