I’m back, and with what I promised. Welcome to Color 101! I’m here to give you the basics of color. Have that one fashion piece that you bought only for the color, and now don’t know what to wear it with? No problem! Maybe, these illustrations can help you out. (Bare with me, I made these illustrations, and may look like a fifth graders art project.)
Now that we got the basics out of the way…
Let’s move on to my favorite way to my to combine colors to my wardrobe. Complimentary colors are those that are across from each other in the color wheel. You probably haven’t noticed it, but complimentary colors are used a lot by sports teams on their uniforms (Astros- Blue and Orange, Lakers- Yellow and Purple). Don’t watch sports? Think of Christmas, Green and Red are complimentary colors. You could use this tool for your style needs too. If you look at my previous posts you’ll see me use this tip on my looks.
Here are some illustrations on how complimentary colors look together. Above, Red and Green. Below, Blue and Orange.
