How to pair colours in the summer | The Alma Chronicle

It’s no secret that the summer time is the season of colour confidence. With an array of colours coming out to play, there’s no reason to not be clad in a spectrum of colours, at least once. Here are 3 tips on how you can own colour this summer:

  • Be Bold – Don’t be afraid to go bright!

Each year, there always seems to be a fresh take on the colour palette – this summer for one, is saturated with fuchsia, yellows, tropical greens and chill blue colours. The beauty of these colours is in their versatility, as they offer a little something for every style sensibility. But the secret to owning these summer hues is to wear the colours in confidence.

  • Colour clash

Now, this kind of styling can either make or break an outfit, but as long as you follow a few rules you can’t go wrong. To successfully rock this trend, pick a bright colour and pair with a darker or cooler tone. My choice for this outfit is a mix of blue and yellow – the bright splash of yellow which uplifts the outfit is perfectly combined with a bold but underwhelming blue, allowing for the two to match effortlessly.

And if you don’t feel comfortable colour clashing just yet, you can choose to pair your brights with more neutral hues like blacks, whites or even denim. Either way, you’re spoilt for choice with endless combinations. Alternatively, you can play with patterns like I did here

  • Accessorize

Another way to brighten up your summer wardrobe is to accessorize with colour. From shoes to jewellery pieces, these accessories can be used as statement pieces. They can be used to compliment a colour already styled in an outfit – such as I have done with this outfit, or they can be worn as standalone pieces.

  • “I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is just as obvious to everyone else” - This is exactly how I feel when I hear some women say things like “I’m not a feminist because I don’t hate men”. I’ll be the first to admit that I have previously dismissed or cancelled such women as I don’t see or understand how one will ever equate the fight for equal rights in the society to love/hatred for men. It’s no longer enough or acceptable to be ignorant about societal issues. It’s time to pick up a book, have conversations & enlighten your mind. But also, I have decided that instead of dismissing such opinions, I’ll be more open to having these conversations, with women and men alike, because truthfully, of what use is it for only a select few to be fully informed in a fight? #LetsTalk // P.S To get 15% off @danielwellington site, use my code “AlmaChronic” 😊#danielwellington // 📸: @moflave
  • Can’t believe I’ve had my platform #TheAlmaChronicle for 3 years!!! It’s so exciting that what started as a need to prove to myself that I could do something without depending on someone else, has grown over the years and taught me so much about life, patience, values, etc etc. I remember staying up at night learning the basics of coding so I could tweak a theme template and publishing my first post from @folabss_ house after realising I had been duped (long story 😭). I’ve poured a lot of myself into this platform and I’m so grateful for everyone that supports it! We’re growing together 👭👫💕💕 #TheAlmaChronicle
  • Gave wristwatches a break and fuelled my addiction for bracelets, but this duo from @danielwellington is pretty 👌🏾, lightweight and stylish. Great addition to my arm candy collection // To get 15% off @danielwellington site, use my code “AlmaChronic” 😉 #danielwellington

Turning 25 wasn’t just a number for me, I feel as though I’m getting a fresh start at figuring life out without the pressure and all my layers of internal doubt and anxiety. I can’t wait to experience all the amazing things that come with this age! 💕💕💕
  • A birthday girl, a babe! Used to be so scared of getting older, but I think 25 looks good on me! 🥂🎂💃🏽 #CapricornSeason
