So you don’t know how to color-match your clothes, huh?
I don’t blame you — it’s pretty confusing.
But you can’t wear color until you figure out how to do it, right?
You’ll wear colors that clash and look like a fool.
So maybe you just avoid colors for now. You stick to black, white and grey, with the blue of your jeans being the sole exception.
Well, that stops today.
Because you can wear colors — even if you don’t know how to match them. And you can do it without any chance of looking like a fool.
You just need to know how to match clothes in a way that avoids color-clashes, and you don’t need to know anything about color-matching to do so.
Color Matching is Confusing
Obviously, you want to dress the best you can, but keeping track of which colors match and which colors clash is hard.
Even if you ignore the full color spectrum, and only look at basic colors, you still have a ton of possible combinations.
The color wheel only has 12 colors in it, but that means you can combine them in 66 different ways. (Yeah, you got me, I had to look that up)
Figuring out which of those combinations match and which clash would be a pain.
Instead of racking your brain trying to learn color matching, you should use my secret trick for effortlessly matching your clothes.
But we get to that, you need to learn about neutrals.
Neutrals are colors that work well with all other colors. They are impossible to clash, which is why they make great supporting pieces. If you’ve begun building your Restart Capsule, you should already have a few neutrals in your wardrobe.
Examples of neutral colors are:
The One Color Trick
Since neutrals won’t clash, you can match them to any color you wish.
So instead of trying to match colors together, you simple wear a max of one color in your outfit, and keep the rest neutral.
This little splash of color will be enough to add a little pop to your outfit, and you’ll be completely safe from clashes. On little pop is enough to make your outfit stand out.
I’ll show you some examples of outfits using the one color trick:
Red shirt, grey blazer, black jeans
White shirt, green jacket, khaki pants
Grey T-shirt, black sweater, purple pants
