One Brilliant's Guide To Wearing Color

Suzanne Mauro

Every woman deserves a little color in her closet. The use of color in your daily garb not only flatters your overall appearance, but it can influence your mood as well as the mood of others around you. The first thing that people notice about you is the color you are wearing. Some clothes just make everyone around you feel good. Standout pieces that make a statement. We at One Brilliant always know the season's most powerful pieces and guarantee they will make you feel and look great.

We just love this coral Novelty Jacket by Weavz, a standout piece in a fabulous color, $168.00 available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)

A great way to help you figure out which colors in your wardrobe can be mixed and matched is by looking at a Color Wheel.


Simply look at colors that are opposite on the color wheel, for example, purple and yellow or blue and orange. These colors work very well together because they contrast.

Notice how red and purple, situated next to each other on the color wheel, look great together because they complement each other, Use the two "C" words, contrast and complement, to your advantage.

Another way to use the color wheel is to dress in one color, but in different hues. Using several shades of the same color, from light to dark will give you a polished look.

We love this coral 525 america knit sweater tank worn alone or over a smooth tank, either way it is a lift of color for any age, $68.00 available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)

Color is the most important component of your look and it is the easiest way to freshen your wardrobe and reflect your own personal style. The power of a "real" color can erase about 10 years from your look by complementing your hair and skin tone.
