Take a Palette to your Closet!

When you look at any of the Colormusing palettes, you'll see that one of my suggestions for using a palette is to apply it to your wardrobe. (Think about it— we already create palettes every time we get dressed, without even realizing it.) But how exactly do you do that?

Creating an outfit from a color palette

Here's a post I wrote a while back on my Changing Your Clothes blog about this very subject. (The palette I used for my examples, one of which is shown above, actually came from a book aimed at interior designers, but I found inspiration in so many of its palettes, I decided to use one of them.)

The beauty of this approach is that you start with what you already have— pick a favorite color (one that's prominent in your closet), then find a palette that features that color. (Using the Browse function in our Palettes Collection helps with that, or just browse the Color Collections.)

Whether you use a Colormusing palette, one from a book, or one you create yourself (here's my tutorial to get you started), I think you'll find greater enjoyment in your current closet, just by trying on a new palette (or three)!
