If you’re open to adding more character to your outfits, but your signature style is classic and colourless, sometimes putting on a loud party shirt can feel unnatural and a little out of the blue.

To get accustomed to the idea of colour and prints, we suggest following these simple style tips.

1. Start with socks

1. Start with socks

You don’t need to drastically change your style to stand out. A patterned pair of socks is the easiest way to introduce colour to any look. When you’re feeling confident, consider rolling your cuffs to show them off, or style them with a pair of shorts.

Whether it’s a beanie or a business tie, adding a coloured accessory to your look is the next step up from socks. Consider one piece at a time because adding too many can get messy real fast.

If you live in basic cotton tees, think about swapping your favourites out for one with colour. If black is your go-to, consider dark colours like forest green and navy, but if you’re comfortable with lighter shades, then try pastel pink and sand beige.

Social events are the perfect opportunity to go big with colour. Invest in a party shirt that has a loud print and style it back with beige chinos or wear it unbuttoned over a plain tee to add balance to the busyness of the design.

5. Think layers that you can take off

5. Think layers that you can take off

If you’re not ready to commit to colour, consider layers that you can easily remove. Think jackets, jumpers, sweaters or even an overshirt – outer layers that you don’t have to wear all day.
