Spring is almost here, and the shops are already filling with the new season’s styles and colours.
Before you spend another cent on your wardrobe, consider finding out what colours suit you best.
Need convincing? Here’s 3 reasons why you should know your colour palette.
1. Ease of putting outfits together.
Having clothes that are all in the same palette means that when you pull two items out of your wardrobe you don’t have to think about whether the colours go together.
2. Spend less money.
Too often we buy without a plan in mind. I was speaking with a client the other day who was contemplating buying something to wear with a dress that wasn’t in her palette. It’s a common trap to buy something to make something else work.
When we buy all our clothes in the one palette, we know that the colours will go with other things so it is less likely to be an orphan than is never worn or only worn in a specific combination.
Only buying clothes in your palette and having more options to mix and match you won’t get as bored with your wardrobe - although knowing that your clothes look BeYouTiful on you may tempt you to spend more money on each item.
3. Puts the focus on you not your clothes.
One of the main reasons for purchasing in your palette rather than just sticking to any palette is that it puts the focus on you rather than your clothes. It makes it easier to look you in the eyes and means that attention is less likely to be drawn those spots you would rather hide.
As an added bonus you will look healthier and younger as unflattering light won’t be reflected in your skin.
So what colours should you be on the look out for this Spring?
Patone’s Colour of the Year for 2019 Living Coral was everywhere in Australia at the beginning of the year. It can still be found, but it is competing with the earthier reds, oranges and browns that started to appear in winter.
These colours are being complemented by the new Spring Colours that are hitting the shops in Australia include lots of soft blues, greens, greys and beiges.
Pantone hasn’t announced it’s colour of the year for 2020 but have said that it is inspired by the seashore - the colours of the ocean, the sand and driftwood. It looks like these are already starting to hit the Australian stores for Spring.
It looks like there will be something for all colour palettes if you know what to look for.
