MY LITTLE COLOR-TRIP

Red

I find difficult. With red, it really depends on the tone of the red. Mostly it comes across too theatrical for me. Whereas I like red on the walls very much. Color nuances decide whether red looks crass or harmonious. When I wear red, I mix it with flat hues to take the edge out, like beige and off-white, khaki.

Orange

is usually too squeaky for me, but sometimes it's worth a lusty statement. For example, if you mix it with other bright colors, like yellow, light green, turquoise, like stylist Trang Cao here.

Pink

I like very much. However, not every pink. I prefer it in pastel or really clear and strong.

Yellow

I love it when i feel happy and light and can use it to add a little pep to a pair of boring blue or gray pants. This summer a cheap lemon yellow t-shirt was the champion in my closet.

Green

A bright, clear green can look very fresh and modern. For example, as a blouse or cardigan combined with blue jeans. Wonderful.

Khaki

Khaki is casual and brings a touch of country air. Super as a parka or pants, gladly also in camouflage. So you are always multifunctionally equipped on trips, hiking but also when strolling through the city. Very unstressed and takes years away from you.

Blue

is perfect for me as a former blonde and now silver-gray lady. In short I love it. I wear light blue when I feel feminine and cozy. Nothing beats a classy sky blue cashmere sweater with a pair of white or washed out jeans.

Dark blue

always looks good. As jeans, a dress, a skirt, a sweater. Dark blue is serious, down to earth, classic and yet casual. I do not combine too accurate parts with it. That can otherwise quickly look boring and adapted. Casual is, for example, a wide, white Marlene pants with a tight, blue blazer.

White

Without question....an oversized white men's shirt with jeans. It doesn't get any better than this. Sexy, casual and understatement in one!

Black

isn't that almost like dark blue? No, it isn't! Black seems to me cool, distant, also a little sublime, unapproachable - and yes, of course elegant. With black you always have a certain appearance. This non-color is therefore unbeatable when traveling. Black is also the right choice for me when I want to have my peace. See above - theme distant... Accessories come into their own on this cool surface. But be careful: black can also quickly look gloomy and sad. Hair and make-up must look fresh.

Gray

in the combo with black and white, gray is unbeatably classy and yet casual, yet modern and always fresh. You can never go wrong with it. Gray baggy sweater with black leather pants. What more could you want....

Beige

is one of my favorite colors and almost always goes. It flatters the complexion, looks feminine and elegant at the same time. Especially beautiful as a silk blouse, wool dress, wide Marlene pants, thick turtleneck sweater and of course as a coat.

Nude

oh, an absolute MUST! It looks classy with everything and enhances any outfit. Here, too, you have to "wear" a fresh face. A good reason to put on a mask every now and then to give the complexion a freshness kick.
