It’s all about the color

Today I thought I’d talk about colors, and how to wear multiple colors at once.

Take a look at the color wheel for example.

If you draw a a triangle anywhere on the color wheel you will get three colors that harmonize well together like this

A great way to combine colors is to use 2/3 of that triangle plus a neutral. For example our flag, red, white, and blue.

Here are some great harmonizing colors schemes. You can pick two and throw in a neutral, or wear all three together. One of my favorites is yellow, blue and grey!

Just remember if you decide to wear multiple colors, use this rule of thumb 60%-30%-10%. Using my favorite colors again, I have the main color be grey, then yellow, with pops of blue! Have fun with color!
