So here's the 411-
Primary Colors: Red, Yellow, Blue
Essentially, these are the only colors you'd ever need (if you were an artist). In the fashion world, however, life with only these colors would be quite boring. Which is why we have....
Secondary Colors: Orange, Green, Purple
These colors are born from the combination of primary colors. (i.e. Red + Yellow = Orange, Yellow + Blue = Green, Blue + Red = Purple)
Does this take you back to elementary school Art 101 or what??? ;) SO, you may know these basic color wheel facts or you may not. But that's not the point. The point is, with this basic knowledge, deciding on your next colorful outfit should be quite simple. As a basic rule of thumb, try to select color combos based on whether they are next to each other on the color wheel (analogous color schemes, such as blue-green, green, and blue-yellow), or opposite each other the color wheel (complimentary color schemes, such as purple and yellow or blue and orange).
Here are some of my fave combos:
|Analogous ~ blues and greens|
|Analogous ~ blues and purples|
|Complimentary ~ pink and green|
|Complimentary ~ blue and orange|
|Complimentary ~ purple and yellow|
So study up on the color wheel... or hang one in your closet... and start rocking color this summer with confidence! :)
