Have you been looking for guidance when it comes to matching colors in your outfit?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then do we have some good news for you!
With the tips mentioned below, you will become adept at matching the right colors and put together amazing ensembles in no time!
So, let us get started…
Stick to One Color
This trick doesn’t involve matching the colors at all. Quite the contrary, since if you use this trick, you get to choose one neutral color and stick to it. The biggest advantage of such a choice is that the color won’t clash with the other shades in an outfit. When you add an eye-popping color, such as red, blue, or green to it the result will be subtle but amazing!
Want some examples to clarify this approach? Here are a few:
- Match khaki pants with a white shirt and camel cardigan. Pull over a navy blue blazer and add a red tie to complete this look.
- With your navy jeans, wear a green shirt. Add a grey sweater and you’re done!
Wear Colors that Complement
Don’t think about how to dress fashionably. Instead start simple and try to put together an outfit that has colors which complement each other. What are the complementary colors you ask? These are colors that can be found on opposite sides of the color wheel. Thus, they don’t match as much as create a contrast.
Remember the following complementary color combinations and you can navigate through most wardrobe emergencies:
- Red and Green
- Orange and Blue
- Purple and Yellow
However, if you don’t pay attention, you might end up matching two extreme shades! For instance, dark green pants and a red shirt could make a person look clownish. On the other hand, if you match the red shirt with olive green pants, you’d be able to pull it off without looking like a walking advertisement for Christmas!
These two tips are simple and achieve the desired results. You won’t be left wondering what to wear to a fashion show or an interview anymore!
