Wearing COLOURlovers' Favorite Colors


Here at COLOURlovers, it's easy to be spoiled by the millions of colors we have available at our fingertips. We can create colors, palettes and patterns to fit our every mood, meet every whim--you know where I'm going with this.

A well-stocked closet can further that creativity in everyday life. When you have bold colors and prints at the ready you can layer them up, mixing patterns, piling hues or opting for a single bright piece against a monochromatic look. But the basics aren't to be discounted in any scenario; a white shirt, black pants, a little black dress, a good brown belt, well-fitting denim and a pair of trim chinos are staples that form the foundation--and in some cases, the entirety--of any good wardrobe.

But members here probably already know that, which explains why COLOURlovers' top colors are all strong, solid basics. Putting them into play here are members of Flickr's wardrobe_remix street fashion community.

"Black"

ninjascience's classic black is CL's most-loved and most-followed color. It's a crisp essential the fashion world loves, too, and the reasons are many: It's stark and striking at the same time, it creates a strong line, it's a clean backdrop for accessories and detail, and, you know, it's slimming.

"camel spider"

CL's most-viewed color, edesigned's "camel spider," instantly reminds me of the traditional Burberry trench coat, a piece the house remakes year after year in both its classic and updated forms. The beauty of this color, as with the trench coat, is its mutability--it's a neutral that pairs well with virtually any color and every other neutral, and it can be as straightforward or as modern as you'd like it to be.

"Now or never"

Like camel spider, peony's "Now or never," the CL color with the most comments , is a soft, warm neutral. Its dusty tone is a favorite in the fashion blogger world, I'd guess because it, too, bridges the gap between popular vintage florals and tough, edgy boots.

Some lovely, unexpected combinations here! I always enjoy seeing what beige does near a vibrant color. I can't wear very much of it, so I'll just have admire those who can. :-)
