Tips on Combining Colors with La Koketa App
Combining colors is a virtuoso skill that tells a story about the way we feel and our innate desire to interact with the world. I’ve always regarded colors as mood boosters and the choice to add a splash accent or its lack thereof can communicate a great deal about our daily motivation, energy levels and state of mind.
If you want to blend with the environment and feel harmonious at all times with the setting and the context, then monochromatic outfits should definitely be your go-to choice. Not only are they a safe bet, but they usually add an easily achievable sophistication to your look. Read more on color-palette dressing here: https://lakoketaapp.com/color-palette-dressing/.
Another approach is the color theory, which offers a rather scientific methodology to combining colors and is a very practical reference when in doubt. Yet, if you are not confident enough to apply it appropriately, you might end up looking and feeling rather conspicuous and out of place, which is far from the point.
Here I wanted to share with you three easy tricks on how to use La Koketa App for building outfits based on color according to your daily disposition (whatever it might happen to be 😊).
1. One-color outfits
Let’s say you feel like wearing black today because you want to be effortlessly classy in the office, on the street and at this slightly formal event after work. You check out the outfit ideas on your Home Feed and go to the filter on the top right, where you select black color, business style and autumn season.
You can then browse the endless feed with outfit ideas that combine your own clothes with your favorite brands. If you haven’t digitized your closet yet, read how to easily do it on the blog: https://lakoketaapp.com/digitize-your-closet/
Here is what I ultimately decided to wear. Rarely do I choose combinations exclusively in black for my daily work wear and I was pleasantly surprised by this outfit suggested by @lakoektaapp. Here, the rhinestone belt and the balloon sleeve shirt are the stars, the comfort is undeniable, and the metal details make all the difference!
2. How to wear an accent?
Let’s imagine a different scenario! You wake up and you feel overpowered and ready to “grab the day by the neck and kiss it” like Bill Murry would say. 😊 At moments like these, your style game should definitely reflect your brimming energy and exuberant attitude with a splash of accent color to make your outfit pop.
My strategy in cases like these is to pick a statement piece and add it as a preferred item in the “What to Wear?” feature of La Koketa app, then select the respective style and season and ultimately choose the suggested outfit I happen to fall in love with.
This was the case with the ensemble I eventually selected. The coral coat is undeniably stellar, so the other pieces are subdued to work as the base. It’s good to have a tool that can color match your mood and dress it with a couple of taps!
3. Combining Colors
Yet another option if you want to keep the fall mood around for a little longer, consider choosing colors on the warm specter of the palette and play with them. For instance, input beige and red into the Filter on the Home Feed and check out the great outfit combos that result as suggestions.
Here the pleated shorts in burgundy and the cognac-colored backpack blend harmoniously with the fall landscape and make you feel like grabbing a pumpkin latte and enjoying it with a good read by the window of your favorite cafe. 😊
The ready-to-wear outfits from the “What to Wear?” tool are basically a tap away. So why not scout for some inspiring ideas first on your Home Feed and then consult with your own closet to prep up for an amazing day ahead.
