It’s a big day. You’ve got an important meeting at work that you’re taking the lead on and you’ll be in front of a room of people. You want to make sure you look and feel your best. The only problem? You DISLIKE picking out your outfits. You’re not sure if it’s because you’ve got too many options or you just can’t think before your morning coffee – either way, you always seem to end up with the same, safe outfit. It doesn’t represent your personality or business ambitions at all, but you know it looks professional. If this sounds like you, I’ve got some helpful ideas.
COLOR MATCHING! This simple approach to building your look every day – important meeting or not – will make getting dressed a breeze and help you get to that cup of coffee.
How Color Matching Pulls Every Outfit Together in a Minute!
Choose colors from your closet that work well together – I usually go with three. Maybe you want to link together cream, white, and tan for a smart, sleek look or perhaps you’re feeling more bold and you choose magenta, navy, and gold to really make a splash.
Once you’ve chosen your colors, it’s time to go on a scavenger hunt. Pull all the pieces from your closet that have those colors. Don’t forget to include accessories, too! Your belts, hats, sunglasses, and bags are all part of your look and can tie everything together.
Mix and match! Grab all the pieces you need for a complete look and you are set to go! Here’s an example:
- Pair tailored, navy pants with a bold magenta blouse and a belt with gold detailing on it. Add in some gold earrings, a navy bag, and magenta shoes to bring the whole look together.
It doesn’t take long to get good at building outfits this way and for many of my clients, it changes their perspective on what once was a dreaded, but necessary, task each day. Color matching allows you to see what colors work well together and how they can be paired with other items in your closet to make getting dressed a snap, no matter what you have planned for the day.
