Here goes the first of, hopefully, many blogs, style matters or matters of style! Nicely open to interpretation I thought!

Colour is one of the foundations of Lucas and Stone. The others are great quality, classic design and good value but I’ll save them for another time.

I love colour, my passion is colour and amazing colour combinations but somehow this rarely translates into my wardrobe! That’s why beautifully coloured accessories really appeal to me.

How do I wear them? Well that basically depends on my mood and the season – but here’s a few suggestions…

    1. Head to toe colour makes an impact. Add accessories of the same colour to your outfit to enhance the look.
    2. Totally opposite colours make each other look amazing. Technically, these are called complimentary colours, they are colours on opposite sides of the colour wheel (first created by Goethe and taught by Josef Albers). The name is a giveaway, when these colours work together they make each other look great. So why not add a burgundy cuff to set-off your yellow sweater!
    3. Colours stand out or pops more when used as a highlight with neutral tones. If you don’t wear much colour, a bit like me, camel and grey are my winter staples, then add a bright accessory to mix it up. Summer is my time and a totally different story colour wise, bright and bold tones are my fav so I tend to calm the look down with natural or neutral coloured accessories.
    4. Layer up different tones from the same colour family for a rich strong look. A good example that always looks fabulous is red with pink…and Delpozo always uses colour beautifully!

 

The best advice I can give is have fun and play with colour, it’s instinctive and anything goes, just wear it with confidence.

Feel free to share your thoughts too.
