Color Studies

As a stylist—dressing people like Miley, Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian—I learned to push myself beyond a box and explore more unconventional choices in fashion. My clients all had very unique sensibilities, so in order to design looks for them that felt individual with distinct points of view, I sought inspiration from so many different kinds of places. I had to look beyond what was in front of me and tap into sources like art, cinema, the circus, travel, nature, and pop culture. 

Looking deeper, I learned how much fun you can have with color by playing with shades, color blocking and complimentary hues. You can take an outfit from “cool” to “iconic” all by using an unexpected pop of color as an accent to tie everything together in a way that feels new or personal.

The same goes for pairing undergarments. It's conventional and safe to match our bras and underwear, but it's also a lot of fun to mix and match. I urge everyone to give it a try. There are so many cool, unexpected combinations that work really beautifully together. Sometimes colors play off each other in such a way that they become even more interesting together than they'd be paired with an item of the same color.

One combination I absolutely love is red, blue and pink. When you mix and match with these three colors, you can’t lose.

Red and pink just bring out the best in each other. They really brighten a look and create more depth when they are paired together.

Blue and red sit opposite one another on the color wheel. And you know how they say opposites attract? Well, in the case of color, they certainly do!

Another combination I love is blue and rust. It’s so rich, and the two colors truly bring out the best in each other.

And lastly, consider mixing in the beautiful world of neutrals. People think neutrals are boring but in my opinion, they are the opposite. Don’t be afraid to mix brown, rust, khaki, cream, and pink. These colors (when paired together) create an element of richness and depth. If you want to take it one step further, throw in a bright pop of color, like pink or red. 

There are no set rules when it comes to mixing colors in fashion. Try, experiment, and have some fun. When it comes to undergarments, our colors are meant to be worn with one another. We specifically wanted to have a line with colors and shades that complement one another—so don’t be afraid to ditch the uniformed look and have some fun with mixing it up!
