Why Not Red, White and Blue? | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to another episode of my Friday Fashion.
Ever since we are born we are taught to use all our senses and to use primary colors to express our emotions, that’s how we learn which colors make us feel good or not and we learn to attribute gender to colors: girls must be pink and boys must be blue. Some of us have an intuition about colors, or see the color of love, the energy of colors, or the aura of each person they meet, but most people don’t have the gift of intuition of how colors work together and are generally afraid of colors, they will preclude the possibility of using colors to their advantage.

Colors communicate with the heart, mind, body and soul, making us feel good on all levels. Human beings are light, we vibrate light, it is like we plug-in the electricity of life through colors. Without light, there is no life, and without color, life is sterile, boring and dark. Remember the primary colors you learned to use in the elementary school and how happy they made you feel? Why should we not wear them as adults and limit ourselves only to certain colors?
Red White & Blue
Here it is my idea of primary colors, which happens to be the patriotic colors of 4th of July celebration as well. Don’t be afraid of wearing red, white and blue, if it is playful and tastefully done. In my color scheme you will see two simple solutions, one with a dress jacket and a lacy top and one with a leather jacket and a polo shirt. The pencil jeans are the same for both solutions and so is the scarf, which can be worn with or without the jacket. My personal preference of shoes in this color scheme is definitively the vintage shoes.
Invert the colors by making blue the small 10% of the combination and red a major color and you will have a totally different energy, hotter and more vibrant. Your choice.

Coco Chanel

Of course funky style is easier to do  in this patriotic color scheme, as most people would mix and match stars and stripes without rules, but my goal is to bring elegant simplicity that everyone can wear any time of the day. People will remember the person and not the clothes, as Coco Chanel said.
I hope you will have a splendid and safe 4th of July celebration. Ciao,
