Most days we choose for a black outfit, but why? Don’t be afraid of color. Colors are the smiles of nature.
Colors Are The Smiles Of Nature
You make different colors by combining those colors that already exist.
I was very against pink and purple when I was young, because they were girls’ colors. But that was only because I didn’t want people to write me off for what I can do. When I got into my 20s, I decided that was stupid.
Simple Ways to Master Color Mixing
Color mixing is not the sort of thing that anyone is born knowing how to do, but that’s a good thing. It’s not a talent. It’s a skill. And like any other skill, it can be learned. Here are some strategies to make it easier.
When you’re talking about colors, “complimentary” actually means “opposite.” Black and white, for instance, are complimentary colors. That’s why they look so great together. You know, “opposites attract.” That whole thing.
Every color has a complimentary color. It’s just whatever is on the opposite side of the color wheel. True complimentary colors are the same distance from the center of the wheel, but it can be very striking to combine a color from the center, like a pale yellow green, with its complimentary color from the outside edge, like a deep mauve.
Find a print from a designer you love (or even something in your own wardrobe, like bags) and break it down into its different colors; then make an outfit. If you want to take it to the next level, rank the colors in the print from most used to least used and wear larger items like dresses, coats, or sweaters in the most-used colors and smaller items and accessories in the least-used colors.
