MOVE OVER WINTER BLUES
As the weather transitions to the cold, darker days of winter, this can likely affect our mood and productivity. Individuals tend to match their outfits and tones with the weather also, opting for greys, blacks, whites and some nude tones which look great but can make everything more bland and colourless. To avoid this we need to welcome colour to our life and try out these winter trends!
It is scientifically proven that sunshine, warmth, and bright colours instantly boost your serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin levels, meaning… you are happier and more productive! If you prefer to keep your wardrobe simple and quiet, then there are other ways to brighten it up and that includes accessories such as, yes you guessed it, glasses!
WHAT IS COLOUR BLOCKING?
Colour blocking has come back into fashion and we are loving it!
What is it? Colour blocking is thought of as the exploration of taking colours that are opposites on the colour wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary colour combinations.
Colour blocking made it’s first appearance in the 1940’s and re-appeared in the 60’s, 70’s and now in 2021!
The chart above, gives a good indicator of the right colour blends for a bright and wonderful wardrobe (and this goes for glasses too!) If you are hesitant about trying colour blocking it is suggested to start with accessories such as earrings, shoes and belts to provide a pop of colour.
INSPIRED EYEWEAR BRANDS
There are a few exciting brands at Adelaide City Optometrist that love to experiment with colour and patterns. These include, Sabine Be, Lool and Etnia. 2 deriving from Spain and the other France, (the meccas of the fashion world) they are truly motivated by art and keeping the warmth alive despite having extremely cold temperatures.
SABINE BE AND COLOUR
Sabine Be is well-known for bright colours and unusual shapes! The beauty of it is there are always more colour combinations that she hasn’t tried and we always get the latest range to satisfy our customers curiosity and quirks.
ETNIA AND PATTERN
Etnia have a variety of collections, however, a favourite of ours is the extremely unique patterns they use. If you look closely you can see a mix of stripes, colour blocking, circles, and unusual placings of their ‘pop’s of colour’.
LOOL AND COLOUR BLOCKING
The RGB series that Lool designed is an example (on a smaller scale) of colour blocking! Using the primary colours together really creates vibrant and interesting pieces. If you really want to make a fashion statement this winter, a pair of these would get head’s turning!
