Of course, you get upset and put your purchase away. If you are tired of being frustrated after shopping choose your best clothing colors and create personal clothing palette. Below you can read how to build properly a great color palette for your closet.    

Let’s not forget that you’re all striving to find your unique personal style, that`s why there won’t be any general rules of picking your clothing palette JUST advice. We all have color preferences in daily life. Your color palette is completely up to you, but it’s so important to learn how to coordinate your color preferences with the pieces of clothing.

FIND YOUR BASICS

The basics are the main colors of your closet. So it means that you wear the clothes of these colors a lot or most commonly. These are your key pieces without which you can`t imagine your life like jeans, trousers, jackets and so on. And before choosing basic colors determine your skin’s undertone. People with warm skin’s undertone will look great wearing clothes with warm based reds and yellows. Orange, coral, yellow-green tints will also fit you. But never include cool blue pieces in your closet. Vice versa people who have cool undertones will never go wrong buying clothes of purple, green and navy blue.
BUT if you choose red as your main color it doesn’t mean that you can wear the clothes just in this color. A red skirt, red top, red shoes together will make you look gaudy and tawdry. Avoid this effect!
