Some notes …

  • Always remember that no outfit is complete without accessories. You should pay attention that the color of the accessories compliments your outfit. Otherwise, it will make you look messy.
  •  As a bridesmaid in autumn, the best colors are red, wine and brown. But if you are going to a wedding as a guest, the best color is royal blue.
  • If you are confused about choosing the colors of your outfit, the best thing is to use the rule of three colors.

What is the rule of three colors?

Definitely, many of you, like me, do not have enough time to choose the right dress color. My fastest choice is to use monochrome or complementary colors. But if you want to have a stylish and unrepeatable style, the best choice is to use the rule of three colors.

The principle of the rule of three colors is that when wearing clothes, do not combine more than three colors in your clothes. In this rule, white and black are exceptions. Because basically these two are not colors but tones and can be used as an accent color in your style.

One of the important points in using this rule is that the colors you choose must all be in the same family. It means that all of them are either cool or hot. For example, you can use Hippie Pink, camel and seagull colors for the main colors of your style and white or black colors to highlight your style as accessories.
