Clashing Clothes Day is annually observed on the fourth Thursday in January.
History of Clashing Clothes Day
When something conflicts, it either conflicts with or disagrees with something else. In today's example, the things that clash are the colors on the clothes. On most days the goal is to make the clothes fit, but not today! It is Clash of Clothes Day!
How to mix clothes when you don't know how to mix colors
What's the problem you're having with the mix? You don't know how to match clothes color right?
Simply, you should choose black, white and gray, with blue jeans being the only exception.
Because you can wear colors - even if you don't know how to combine them. Of course, you can do it so there's no chance of looking like a fool.
You just need to know how to mix clothes to avoid color clashing.
Color Matching is Confusing
It's obvious that everyone wants to dress as well as possible, but keeping track of which colors match and which clash is difficult.
Even if you ignore the full color spectrum, and just look at the primary colors, you still have a lot of possible combinations.
Refer to the basic color wheel. This color wheel only has 12 colors, but you can mix the colors together in 66 different ways.
Figuring out which of those combinations is right and which clash will be a pain.
Try an alternative
Instead of brainstorming trying to learn how to mix colors, you should use the tips below to coordinate clothes easily.
To get there, you need to learn about the neutral elements.
Neutral colors are colors that combine well with all other colors. They can't clash, that's why they make great supports. If you've added some wardrobe essentials, you should have a few neutral pieces in your wardrobe.
Here are some neutral colors:
- Brown (including camel, khaki, beige, etc.)
One color trick
Because neutrals won't clash, you can combine them with any color you want.
So instead of trying to mix colors together, simply wear one color at most in your outfit and keep the rest neutral.
This little bit of color will be enough to add a little pop to your outfit and you'll be perfectly safe to clash. A little revealing is enough to highlight your outfit.
Here are some examples of outfits that look good using the one-color trick:
- Green shirt, gray sweater, navy blue jeans
- White shirt, orange sweater, gray pants
- Gray suit, white shirt, turquoise tie
Does that mean you can only wear one color at a time?
Wearing just one piece of color in your outfit makes it easy… And yes, it's enough to give your outfit a little pop.
However, you don't have to limit yourself to just one colored item. You can also apply the one color trick to more than one color, as long as you keep it in the same color family.
Add some color to your wardrobe
Don't hesitate to go out and add some color to your wardrobe.
Go out and buy a colorful shirt, then go home and try it on with some of your neutrals. You will see how they fit together. You will be completely safe.
You don't have to wear rainbow-like colors every time you leave the house. Just a little color is enough to create a visually appealing accent for your outfit.
Each one-color outfit is all it takes to look sharp. It's a pretty simple trick and anyone can do it.
So now you have no excuses. Let's start adding some color.
How to celebrate Clashing Clothes Day
To make sure your clothes don't fall apart, start by avoiding neutrals like black, white, and gray. Navy blue and brown also go well with many other colors, so don't wear them. Then match three or four different colors to discover their magic. You will clash in an instant!
