Colour Wheel - How to combine clothing colours: Purple pants & blue sweater 1

Happy Friday. Today we’ll be talking about the basics of combining clothing colours to get endless outfits. Spring is around the corner and I am sure not everyone can afford to buy a new wardrobe. Since you guys already have great pieces in your wardrobe, we will show you how to make the most of your wardrobe by playing around with different colour combinations.

Colour wheel is a great start and an essential wardrobe tool for both men and women that will help you create eye catching outfits. From the colour wheel blue, red and yellow are Primary colours, green, violet and orange are Secondary colours and red–orange, red–violet, yellow–orange, yellow–green, blue–violet and blue–green are Tertiary/intermediate colours which can all be worn together.

  • Wear similar colours which are directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange; yellow and yellow-green; violet and blue-violet, etc.) 
  • Wear colours that are next or directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.). 
  • Wear colours that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.) See how I paired my blue knit with violet harem pants which are colours that are next to each other in the colour wheel.
  •  Wear Colours that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.) If combining 3 colours is a bit too much for you we recommend you stick to two colours.
  • Wear Colours that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)

Brown, white, grey, black and the hues of blue are classified as neutral colours that will go with just about anything.
