The world of unique fashion personally acquired can be lots of fun. Pairing elements not known to go together add liveliness to a wardrobe. This doesn’t mean to add diamonds to a trash bag, but a little duct tape might be fun as a belt. If you’re inclined to sit behind a sewing machine the world is wide open to you. Just walk through any fabric shop and look at all the innovative designs. One of the best things about this is being able to accessorize with snippets of the same fabrics and trims to co-ordinate your look. If you’re uncertain about colour schemes, look to nature.
Sometimes the oddest colours, if the proper hue, can zip together nicely.
For the brightest brights, some clear blue and yellow combinations with just a spark of red or white to that seem to highlight can be innovative. Pair a pretty blue skirt with a yellow and white blouse. Add a chunky necklace in red and some great, little red shoes for a sun sweet outfit. Even babies and toddler clothing online can be playfully dressed in these colours. Try making a baby doll’s outfit from opposite colours on a colour wheel or make what’s on top the bottom colour and the top the bottom for fun.
You can also look to a season’s favourite things. Maybe it’s spring and you love flowers. That doesn’t mean you have to dress orange and pink, but you can add those colors in the form of a scarf or a bright coloured pin against a neutral pallet or mute the colours of clothing to mimic the foliage. Don’t forget some vintage needlework, patches, buttons, and trims on a more modern pattern can add some zip and style that blend old and new.
Have fun with it!
