How to wear LIME
Tropical weather demands tropical color! Do you know how to wear LIME!
Whether you're barbecuing in Brighton or
chilling in the Caribbean, the dramatic shades of luscious Lime are perfect addition to your warm weather wardrobe.
One of the most striking colors of all time, but is this color for YOU?
Well as Kettlewell Colours are kind enough to share with us, theoretically, 3 out of the 4 Seasonal palettes can happily wear different versions of Lime.
and even for a SUMMER - why not?
AND disproving that fact that Summers can't wear LIME, I unearthed an old favorite which shows that even us Summer's can enjoy it in small doses!
Lots of lovely shades for EVERYONE!
How to wear LIME if you're SPRING
With it's sharp acidity and strong saturation level, vivid and vibrant LIME is the perfect 'hero' color in the Spring palette - all shades of lime will work well for you.
Spring colors are LIGHT, WARM and CLEAR with some truly outstanding shades.
You can allow lovely Lime to take centre stage with the simplest of neutral supporters. Or you can match it against some of the other clear shades of Spring, it always holds it's own!
Or if you're AUTUMN
While Autumns can wear the lighter lime too, I love the stronger tone featured against a 'blackberry' top to suit the overall deeper more blended shades of Autumn.
When lime is shown in a print (below) it's subtle, classic and classy.
How to wear lime for a WINTER!
A swatch color fan can't possibly include every single shade but you will see a light LIME included below.
At first site lovely Lime can appear as a strange bed fellow with the Cool tones of Winter. But the extra acidity and contrast that Acid Lime provides makes it a great
addition to the Winter palette, particularly in the Summer months when it adds a tropical touch.
Take look at how to wear Winter colors in the Summer for more ideas.
Not everyone can wear the Bright Yellow of Winter and, if not, then the acidity of lime can make a stunning appearance. Keep the contrast levels high and pair with bright White and, without resorting to black, try Charcoal grey.
And in small doses, even for SUMMER!
Now, how to wear LIME if you're a Summer?
Well certainly luscious LIME isn't the best shade for us Summers, but I've found an old favorite that features lime in very small doses!
I wear a lot of navy and white and this dress adds a vibrant and fresh dimension to the neutrals.
So if you have the urge to wear this most striking of shades, just ensure that you keep it away from your face because it won't be kind to your complexion.
But certainly you can feature it in a print for a dress or scarf or even carry a lime bag. Keep the rest of your colors to a minimum so as not to overwhelm your Summer coloring
