Color Wheels

Short post today, but I wanted to share this very informative tutorial on matching colors from Fashion Bomb Daily. When creating an outfit, use these handy guidelines relating to the color wheel.

  1. Colors directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange; yellow and yellow-green; violet and blue-violet, etc.) 
  2. Colors that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.)
  3. Colors directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.) 
  4. Colors that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
  5. Colors that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)

Neutrals can go with any color on the color wheel. White, black, brown, and denim fall in the category. Happy experimenting!
