Friend Friday: Incorporating Colour

Heres another Friend Friday post. As usual you can see all the other ladies who are participating on Modly Chic. This weeks one is nice and easy...Incorporating colour into your wardrobe.

1. What color dominates your closet?
Black and Purple. Definitely

2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis
in your closet?
I don't think I would change the colour at all. If money weren't an object I think I would just buy shoes and boots in more colours, so I have then to go with everything

3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?
Anything goes! lol. I will mix anything with anything. As long as you don't try putting too many colours into a single outfit.

4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?
I am happy to wear bright colours in any way but I like to add colour to a simple outfit using coloured accessories or coloured tights. I love brightly coloured jackets too, they are more interesting than dark ones ones.

5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color
into their wardrobe?
Oh loads.
Franca of Oranges and Apples. This lady has the brightest closet I have ever seen and is brave enough to pair any colour together.

Frances Joy of Mad Dress Game has a great knack of adding bright accessories to a simple outfit.

Laura of A Daisy Chain Dream. I envy this girls ever expanding collection of coloured tights.

Lydia of Chic on the Cheap. This girl has a hugely colourful wardrobe and is so chic!

And Liz of 26 and Counting. A recent new find of mine. She has a great way of styling block colour pieces.

So how do you incorporate colour into your wardrobe?
What's your favourite colour to wear?

  13. You have just illustrated the power influence of the blogger. And why outfit posts are so incredible. We get to enjoy and see how others style themselves and get inspiration from them.
    The color tights is such an easy way to add color. Since I'm a big Black/white girl, tights are my way of breaking out of being to monochromatic.

    Thank you for you comment by the way. I see we are friends of friends in bloggy land. Hello!

  15. Great post-you are great at mixing colours and patterns! My favourite colours to wear are black (looks great on everyone!) and blue. It used to be pink when I was blonde but as a redhead it doesn't look so hot. Have a great weekend! xo Emily

  16. I get into color slumps, where I tent to wear the same color every day! Usually purple or pink, but I'm really trying to incorporate more color. The other day, I wore turquoise tights (I haven't posted that outfit yet...)
