How to Accessorise with Different Colours

If you are looking to add some colour to your wardrobe, accessories are a great way to do it! They allow you to experiment with different shades and textures you wouldn’t normally try, without overwhelming your look. However, adding colour through accessories can be difficult. With so many different colours to choose from and to match, it’s hard to know where to start.

In this article, we’ll look at how to accessorise with different coloured outfits, so you can feel confident and stylish no matter what you’re wearing

Accessorising with Neutral Outfits

Neutral-coloured outfits are becoming more popular each year. Many women are opting for a subtle look and choosing white, beige, tan, etc. as their colour choices. So, if you’re one of the many neutral dressers, how should you accessorise?

Accessorising with neutral outfits gives you the opportunity to play with different textures to elevate your look. Enhancing neutral colours with textured accessories allows you to add depth and visual interest to your outfit. Consider incorporating accessories made from materials such as suede, leather, or cashmere to create a sophisticated look.

Additionally, accessorising with metallic jewellery looks incredible with neutral colours. Opting for metallic accessories in gold, silver, or rose gold can add a subtle yet impactful touch. 

Accessorising with Bold Colour Outfits

Bold colours can be intimidating to accessorise with; but, with the right approach, you can create a stunning look.

Here are some tips to help you accessorise with bold colour outfits.

Complementing Bold Colours

One approach is to pick an accessory that complements your bold outfit of choice. If you’re unsure, we recommend choosing neutral colours for your accessories, such as white or black, when wearing a bold outfit. Neutral accessories allow the primary colour to remain the primary focus of the outfit while adding a touch of elegance.

Another way to complement bold colours is to choose accessories in a similar shade to the outfit. For example, if you’re wearing a cherry red dress, opting for a burgundy bag or scarf is a great way for the outfit to pop.

Contrasting Colours

If you want to make a statement with your outfit, you can choose contrasting accessories. This creates a striking look that is sure to turn heads. For example, if you’re wearing a bright blue dress, you could accessorise with a pink necklace or scarf.

When choosing contrasting accessories, it’s essential to consider the colours carefully. You don’t want to choose colours that clash, as this can be overwhelming. Instead, choose colours that are opposite on the colour wheel. For example, green and red are opposite on the colour wheel, so a green bag would look great with a red dress.

Accessorising with Patterned Clothing

If you’re wearing a patterned outfit, we recommend keeping your accessories simple and sticking to solid colours that keep the outfit balanced and prevent it from looking too overwhelming. When wearing patterned clothing, you want your accessories to make as little impact as possible

For example. if you’re wearing a floral dress, you could pair it with a simple black clutch bag and black heels. The use of solid black accessories can help keep the focus on the dress’ floral pattern.
