I’m using the festive season productively. When everyone has been fed and watered, I play on Pinterest and Polyvore. I’m trying to confirm my colour palette to make sure I sew clothes I like and will wear – SWAP (sewing with a plan).
One of my dilemmas is black/not black.
I love this colour combination.
Or a softer version?
Why choose between them?
If you’re not sure about the colours that suit you or how you want to combine them – go and have a play on Polyvore and build a collage. Just be prepared to lose hours of time!
This is my inspiration palette:
Notes to self:
- Think of the taupe as more of a warm grey – not one of the brown family.
- Use the soft brights.
- Use high contrast, rather than gradient tones.
- Keep silhouettes and styles quite definite – not too soft or frilly.
- Stick to the plan. (If I keep making exceptions or changing my mind, then I’ve only got myself to blame and will continue to have items that don’t work with each other.)
Do you have a colour palette? Has it helped give you a more wearable wardrobe?
