Do you pay particular attention to the colours you wear? Colours are amazing communication tools that have the power to transmit information and to arouse emotions. Might as well use them wisely, no?

 

GLOW THROUGH THE WINTER

You can’t wait for winter to be over? If your dull complexion makes you want to escape for Bora-Bora, you need to know that wearing certain colours the right way can make all the difference! First of all, make sure to wear bright colours close to your face. We love colourful pants, but if you wear them with a black top, you’ll diminish the healthy-glow effect. You have a warm skin tone? Colours like red, orange, coral, olive and yellow will look really good on you. If you have a cool skin tone, you should rather go for blue, emerald, lavender or pink.

WHAT KIND OF IMAGE DO YOU WANT TO PROJECT?

Knowing the meaning of colours can help you to choose the colours of your clothes according to the way you want others to see you. Obviously, other factors are also behind this. If you keep your hands in your pockets and you have a stooped posture, you could be wearing colours that inspire confidence, and you would still look reserved. But the power of colours is still underestimated. The very fact of choosing the colours you wear according to your activities will put you in the right mood.

 

PROFESSIONALISM AND CONFIDENCE

There’s a reason why people often wear black and navy when it comes to business opportunities. Indeed, navy blue is associated with organization and loyalty and black symbolizes sophistication, authority and power. Looking for a little more oomph? Red, which expresses passion, confidence and action is just what you need!

KINDNESS

Confidence and power are highly valued in our society. However, in some situations, if you assist others, you might want an outfit that inspires kindness. Green instills a feeling of calmness, purple is the colour of delicacy, pink is all about tenderness and compassion and white symbolizes purity. You might want to wear them more often!

AUDACIOUS MIX OF COLOURS

RED & PINK

To create a romantic and vibrant outfit, these two shades, which look really good together, are perfect. For something that remains soft, go for light pink. Want something more dynamic? Dare to mix fuchsia and red! PS: Many people try to avoid wearing these two shades because they think they don’t suit them. However, even though we often refer to these colours as warm, they’re perfect for cool skin tones when they have a purplish finish.

BEIGE AND BROWN

Brown is boring? NO! In fact, the mix of these earth tones is ultra-BCBG! Add textured fabrics to your kits such as suede, leather or knit to avoid a dull look. Convinced yet?

RED AND ELECTRIC BLUE

Primary colors as it best! Red and electric blue go hand in hand, but can be difficult to assume. In order to avoid looking a bit like a clown, we recommend classic and good quality pieces. Red pants, blue jacket and blouse, or vice versa. The fancier, the better. Dare try it!
