ARKET Makes The Case For Wearing All The Colours At Once
There is great joy to be found in wearing bright colours, but many of us swerve them because they are harder to style than, say, black, white and navy. You purchase a bright yellow shirt, for example, and let it languish in your wardrobe. You occasionally pull on a green jacket only to worry that it is too green.
It might surprise you to learn that colours are best styled with other colours. We call this colour blocking (not to be confused with “pop of colour”) and it means wearing bright solid colours with bright solid colours that will add some dopamine-inducing pep to even the greyest of days.
Our collaboration with ARKET can furnish you with just such pieces of wearable sunshine. See below for our suggested pairings and never fear colour again.
You have pulled on your sunshine sweatshirt, but what now? Black? Only if you’re into bumblebee cosplay. We recommend a green puffer to complement what is sure to be your happiest shirt. This is dopamine dressing to the absolute max.
Take a peek at the colour wheel to find colours that go together, specifically blue and orange. This fun get-up comprises a fiery orange collarless padded coat, which is the perfect transitional layer, and cobalt wool-fleece trousers. They may not seem like natural counterparts, but are surprisingly perfect together.
Sky’s the limit
It’s that sky blue again, this time in the guise of painter-style corduroy trousers. Throw on a white T-shirt and this sunflower-yellow fleece gilet made from recycled materials and you have a cheery combination for a walk in the park or coffee with friends.
