Garment Color & Pattern

All About Color

Color is a very powerful tool. It has the ability to influence mood and reflect the wearer’s personality. And we love the way it can create “optical illusions”. Each color scheme has a place in your wardrobe. First, let’s review the color wheel.

          


How Colors & Patterns Play a Role in Your Wardrobe

Now, we’ll put this wheel to practical use in our wardrobe. There are 3 major color schemes, as follows:

  • Monochromatic
  • Analogous
  • Complimentary



Color schemes that minimize size

  • Cool shades, such as hues of blue, green and violet
  • Duller colors, such as mauve, dusty blue and sage
  • Subtle color schemes such as tones of khaki and natural

Color schemes that draw attention

  • Warm shades, such as hues of red, yellow and orange
  • Brighter colors, such as lime, fuchsia and royal
  • Bold contrasts like black and bright pink

There is also much more to color than just solid shades. Prints, or patterns, play an enormous role in fashion. Whether bold and bright or soft and muted, prints are a combination of colors.

Print Effects

Vivid, contrasting and bright shades appear larger:


Subtle, low contrast and dull shades appear smaller:


Look for simple design lines so the print doesn’t make the garment seem cluttered:


Plaids, stripes and other prints may create their own lines:

When you’re buying a garment with a pattern, keep these tips in mind:


The print must:

  • relate to the figure
  • be in scale with the wearer
  • be in scale with the design of the garment

Placement can attract or distract attention to wearers areas of pluses or minuses.
