How To Choose A Signature Color

Color Wheel

The best style is shaped by a strong personality. But sometimes it can be hard to know what your personality should mean when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. Community member The Space Between My Peers has listed her personal colors and asked her readers to think about their own signatures. When your editors took an informal poll of the office we discovered, if pressed, the majority of us would claim navy as our signature color. We had a lone dissenting pink. Which leads this editor to wonder if anyone of us can even lay claim to have a signature color. Navy is one of the original fashion basics and as Diana Vreeland once said "pink is the navy blue of India." Thus perhaps your editors don't in fact have signature colors but prefer to flock to signature basics. When you cope with the constant shifting landscape of trends and cultural signifiers, it may in fact be better to choose a basic, even if its black, to help you navigate getting dressed in the morning. For Between My Peers, we would wager her favorite basic is pewter gray. In tumultuous times we can think of no greater comfort than throwing together basic pieces in basic colors. Times are tough and as good fashionistas we choose navy to keep us on course.
