How to build your outfit efficiently?

First mistake to avoid: combining primary colors! In painting as in art or fashion, primary colors are essential, but they cannot be combined. So be sure not to wear them together! Avoid wearing blue with yellow or red! You can nevertheless associate the secondary colors which are purple, orange or green (they are derived from the primary colors). Don't forget to play with gradients and pastel colors! Finally, tertiary colors are obtained by mixing a primary color and a secondary color! These colors offer you a great choice of association, because they go together wonderfully! Take advantage of this opportunity to make more unique outfits than ever before! In order to have a perfect look, we advise you not to combine more than 2 colors together. Spice up your style with trendy accessories but neutral to perfectly complement your outfit!

Which colors work best together?

There are different types of association possible depending on the colors: Complementary colors : These are the opposite colors on the color wheel. Simply take one color and match it with the opposite color. For example, yellow will go perfectly with purple, or orange with blue. On paper, these associations may seem inappropriate or in bad taste, but they are perfectly compatible with each other! Just try it!

The triadic colors

For this matching system, you can mix up to three colors with the color wheel! Take three of them at equal distance from each other. Prefer one dominant color and the other two that accompany it. For example, start with yellow as the main color, with blue and red as secondary colors!

Analogous colors

Analogous colors are the colors side by side on the color wheel. These are colors that blend naturally together. You can therefore combine them to obtain a perfect result! Be careful with the marriage of red and pink which can sometimes be problematic!

The monochromatic

Think of our little monochrome dresses or our brand new combinations in our shop that will definitely make you look good!
