I was reading a post by Carolyn Rubenstein on her blog, A Beautiful Ripple Effect where she evaluated the most common color in her wardrobe and considered changes. Her go-to wardrobe color is black, which seems to be a common choice for many people.
Her post made me think about my own wardrobe and color trends. And I discovered that my color preferences are seasonal/weather related.
In the warmer seasons I wear a lot khaki with greens, teals and peaches.
In the cooler seasons I fall back on brown. Rich, wonderful, chocolate browns. Brown makes me feel warm and comfortable. I still have the greens and teals, and during winter/spring (our cool and rainy season), I accent more with lavender as well. But brown is my go-to basic.
It’s an interesting observation. A few years ago I made a concerted effort to add more color to my closet since everything was green. And I had a real yellow phobia. I still don’t have a lot of yellow items, but have decided that peach is a reasonable compromise, since I really don’t look good in most yellows. And I’m not comfortable in head to toe black. Perhaps that is something I should work on.
Are there any colors that make you happy? And colors make you nervous? Any colors you avoid wearing? Why?
