You Never Knew Colours Mixing/Matching In An Outfit Was This Easy!

Wednesday, 13 July 2016

Color mixing is not the sort of thing that anyone is born knowing how to do, but that's a good thing. It's not a talent. It's a skill. And like any other skill, it can be learned. Here are some really simple strategies to make it easier for you to master colour mixing. You'd be marveled at how easy and less stressful it was to pair, combine and mix colours in a particular look.

 First and foremost, this is what to always have at the back of your mind whenever you want to mix and match colours in your outfit. Make sure to keep it in the family,
It's pretty straightforward. Pastels with pastels, earth tones with earth tones, jewel tones with jewel tones, etc.
  • Use A Colour Wheel To Find Complimentary Colours: When you're talking about colours, "complimentary" actually means "opposite." Black and white, for instance, are complimentary colours. That's why they look so great together. You know, "opposites attract." That whole thing.
    Every colour has a complimentary colour. It's just whatever is on the opposite side of the colour wheel. True complimentary colours are the same distance from the center of the wheel, but it can be very striking to combine a colour from the center, like a pale yellow green, with its complimentary colour from the outside edge, like a deep mauve.
  • Give It The Ombré Test: Different shades of the same colour or similar colours almost always look good together and yes, this includes red and pink! If you need some help, do a Google image search for "ombré" and get ideas to mix/match your colours perfectly. This is my favourite procedure when styling any outfit, it is just too stylish and depicts class.
  • Let A Print Be Your Guide: Find a print from a designer you love or even something in your own wardrobe and break it down into its different colors, then make an outfit. If you want to take it to the next level, rank the colors in the print from most used to least used and wear larger items like dresses, jackets, or pants in the most-used colors and smaller items and accessories in the least-used colors.
  • When In Doubt, Wear Black And White: Neutrals in general (navy, khaki, gray, denim, gold, silver, etc.) are great for color mixing, but black and white, especially together, are definitely the most popular in colour mixing.
