Color Story


I have listed this blog as the website for my “side hustle” I want to make a bit of knowledge born for those that don’t know. Within a calendar year, there are 2 fashion seasons. There is a sub-season of “resort” but that is a different build. Spring and Fall are your main seasons. All your clothes come out of one of those seasons.

But it’s not only clothes. It’s colors too. Colors are seasonal. Your favorite color might be sky blue and you want to wear it all the time. But you won’t be able to find it at will because it may not be in the color trend of that particular season. This goes for everything! Including yarn, fabric even furniture. I tend to move things around in my closets. If I know something is not on trend I may not wear it like crazy. I may not wear it at all. It might stay in the trunk until it is fashionable again. My personal style is pretty classic… sort of, and my clothes translate.

Something that has always struck me as interesting is when a color has been exhausted, yet people still wear it how “old fashioned” and “out of touch” they look. It’s a subconscious thing. Their outfits could be brand new, but the color is played out. Example: My sorority colors are pink and green. 10 years ago when I’d wear these colors together, folks thought it was a costume. Then it became the color combo of the season in 2005. Everyone thought they were AKA’s. Even folks who had no business… Then it trailed off. Now when I wear P&G, uninformed folks will get nostalgic. It’s only because the combo went out of style. I’m not suggesting that you should abandon your faves for what is currently on trend. Do I still wear P&G still? Every damn chance I get! But I am giving y’all something to think about when you make your current selections.
