How To Mix Colors Guide

How To Mix Colors Guide

Mixing colors can either make or break your outfit entirely. Many ladies seem overwhelmed when they open their wardrobe and find it impossible to select an outfit. Many efficient ladies also struggle with combining colors, because they are either afraid of doing something new or they are unaware of the rules for mixing and matching. What if I say there are some rules that Sir. Isaac Newton discovered for mixing and matching hues.

The color wheel

The color wheel theory is proposed by Sir. Isaac Newton when he tried to condense the color spectrum in color wheel. However, we will only consider it in our clothing. According to this theory, there are five types of colors, i.e. primary secondary, tertiary, warm and cool colors and neutral colors.

Primary Colors

There are 3 primary colors; red, yellow, and blue. These shades cannot be achieved by mixing other colors. They are the derivatives of other colors.

Secondary Colors

These are the combination of the primary colors. Like red and yellow = orange, red and blue = purple, and blue and yellow = green.

Tertiary Colors

Tertiary colors are the combination of both primary and secondary colors. By mixing these colors, we can get shades like mint, aqua colors, corals, etc.

Cool and warm colors

Warm colors make us look smaller and vice versa.

Neutral colors

They as the name implies are mute and plain. Colors like white, black, off white fall in this category.

The 9 best color combinations for outfits

 Maroon and Tan

Tan color is a neutral color so it can be mixed with some rich color. The combination maroon and tan is the best combination for outfits.

Yellow and green

The yellow and green color is the only combination which looks great on almost all skin complexions.

Pink and pale blue

The pink color when mixed with pale blue looks as eye-catching as a bright pop of color.

Red and blue

If you ask about my favorite combination, then this is the combination I like the most. The best thing about this is it can be worn on almost all occasion.

Turquoise and cobalt blue

This combination is the best elegance enhancer. You can use every kind of accessories with it.
