Understanding the balance and right combination of colors when choosing your outfit would make you look well put together,
coordinated and classy.
We have put together a few tips to guide you in choosing the right color combination;
1 Know the color wheel:
On the color wheel, there are three basic primary colors such as red, yellow and blue. These colors are used in creating the secondary colors and the combination of secondary and primary colors are used in creating tertiary colors. Understanding the wheel would help you know best how to combine your colors.
2 Analogous colors
Analogue colors are next to each other on the color wheel such as red and orange, green and yellow. Although, when going analogue with your outfit, it is advisable not to go overboard with it. Combination of three analogue colors at most is perfect and it is strongly recommended to leave it at that.
3 Complementary Colors
These are colors on the opposite side of the color wheel. Except you are a bold confident dresser and can pull off some major color combination, then it is advisable you avoid off complimentary colors as much as possible. Just because they are called complimentary colors and complement one another doesn’t mean they would ‘compliment’ your looks.
4 Neutral Colors
Neutral colors are best for creating well put together outfit. These colors include black, grey, and white. Using neutral colors in your outfit will make them look coordinated and not overdone. You can also combine colors with neutrals. You can do one part neutral, one part color or one part neutral two parts color. For example you can combine a black skirt with blue top and blue shoes.
5 Colors that do (Not) Go well Together.
Avoid mixing colors that do not go together. Black goes with everything except navy blue and in some cases brown. Some people still make these fashion mistakes and get away with them. Rather, pair a navy blue pants with brown dress shoes and except you are extremely sure, do not pair brown with black.
