Karen asked me for advice on adding some lime into her wardrobe. It’s not a colour that suits her colouring (in fact would make her look really ill if she wore a garment in it close to her face), but still, it’s a current trend colour that she wants to play with.
The best way to add in trend colours is to add them in as accessories. That way they’re not washing you out or making you look ill, but can add a punch of excitement to your outfit.
A bag is a really easy way.
Jewellery can work too – because the colour is not in large quantities it won’t make you look sick. A pendant or necklace will draw attention up to your face. A bangle will draw attention to your hands (be warned, if you have luscious thighs bangles may draw attention to them unless you keep your arms bent all day).
If you have a lovely defined waist, why not belt it?
Or as Karen did, she bought a shoe in lime to twist up her jeans.
So in short, use is in a small way, as even a small amount will pack a punch. And don’t put it on or near a body part you’d rather others didn’t notice.
What is your a colour that doesn’t suit you that you want to add into your wardrobe? How do you wear it?
