How to Mix and match colors and patterns -inspired by Chriselle

by - Friday, March 07, 2014



Before I start ,I'd like to say that Chriselle is amazing .. I love her videos they're so helpful ...
not just because they help me a lot in finding my style and be comfortable in what I wear .. but also because I'm studying fashion and she inspires me...
so I decided to watch her videos and illustrate what I understand here on my blog .
----------------------------
Matching master ...
look#1:
 before you add something to your outfit you should add the color of the original piece into considerations ..
#1

for example.. she is wearing black and white patterned dress .. so she picked a black and white patterned jacket as well..
all you need to take care of ..is "texture"
just play with textures and you're all done for look #1
-----------------------------------------
look #2:
here comes the tricky part ..
Chriselle was wearing a short belted dress and before she started picking the cardigan she looked at the pattern on the dress and also the color which is black and white .. now she's not going to put on a black jacket like what she did in look #1 .. instead she picked a red cardigan that has strips with the same pattern of the dress ... because you
#2
always want to have something in common between the layers you wear
and to blend the look together she tied the belt around the cardigan ,but also keep in mind that the belt color needs to be in the same color palette of the outfit ...like the cream one she's wearing
---------------------------------------
look #3:this look is brilliant ... she was wearing a sleeveless dark knee-length dress and paired it with black tights and also
#3
black shoes .. and for the coat ... it has circles on it , all black ....just remember to play with textures and look for pieces that are from the same color palette ...also don't forget the power of the belt,it gives you more feminine look as it defines your waist .
--------------------------------------
look #4:
in this look ,Chriselle was
#4
wearing a short vintage polka dot dress ..beautiful and feminine,now the 
question is can we pair stripes with polka dots ? the answer is Of coarse as long as you play with textures and choose a color with the same color scheme  ,then you're doing it right
-------------------------------------
look #5:this was the last look in the
#5
video "Stripes on stripes" look
chriselle said that you can wear stripes on stripes as long as you play with 
textures , and with the thickness of the stripes!
she also used a thick cream belt to blend the whole look together ...
---------------------------------
in the end of the video she said that playing with patterns can be quite scary at first ,but fashion is fun!it's all about mixing and trying new things..
