it has crossed my attention on a few occasions that i mix too many colors together. actually more like criticized, which have turned into me lashing out getting all miami on the poor souls who try to say something about my style. (yes, this has happen on more than one occasion). well i have the simple solution for this… some may recognize this little piece of fashion gold from your early adolescent years in art class. the color wheel. yes, it works with fashion too. how else do you think the brilliant people who dress our faboosh starlets know that mixing a bright orange with violet and when wearing blue, yellow is a perfect accent. this is all thanks to our handy dandy color wheel. and now is the perfect season to throw all your bright pieces of clothing together and create a look people will remember (or at least talk about)
of course, like most things there is a science to reading this. here is the “how to read a color wheel for dummies” guide:
1. Colors directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange; yellow and yellow-green; violet and blue-violet, etc.)
2. Colors that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.)
3. Colors directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.)
4. Colors that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
5. Colors that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
if you follow these directions you should basically stay out of the “oh my god what the hell was that girl thinking” reaction and fall more into the “daaaaamn i want her to go shopping with me” reaction. just remember, the only thing that makes your outfit look ugly is your lack of confidence. if you have the confidence and you walk with your head held high, no one will doubt what you are wearing.
one last thing, brown and black, DO GO TOGETHER!
