Some of you may remember I promised in my last Style Dispensary session, a series of 3 posts focusing on pattern colour and texture, so this is todays post on colour.
I adore turquoise it summons up warm sandy beaches, tranquil havens, mexican jewellrey using the stone turquoise, it work beautifully with almost every colour you can think of, apart from I would argue black, as I feel black cheapens its ability to be a cool classy colour or a bright warm one. If the truth be told I have always been a bit of colour magapie, which is probably why I love working as a Stylist. The tantalizing oppportunity to inject colours that work for clients into their Wardrobes and help them create a Style that reflects their personality creating a Stylish look is a great lure. I thought you might enjoy taking a sneak peak at the predicted colours for 2010 as forcast by pantone! I'm itching to know what your all time favourite colour combos are! I will use my favourite suggestion as inspiration for a outfit post, some time very soon, do please tell!!!

My Top Tips For Colour Shy Girls!
1. Experiment with changing your base colour, i.e black for most women,which is not a easy basic to team with colour to grey, navy or chocolate.
2.Start by introducing small amounts of colour to your wardrobe/closet with, tight's, pump's a head band or bag.
3.Wear colours from the same family group, i.e different shades of green, for a well groomed look that is not difficult to achieve.Great for petites!
4.Feeling brave and you have height? Clash colours, no science involved for a dynamic look, i.e purple and yellow.
5. Remember colours of the same intensity/saturation will generally always work together.
6.Still finding it hard to loose your black wardrobe? Ease your way in by wearing prints, with little dashes of colour.
