Matching Colours can be a hassle at times when dressing, you don’t want to go out in a colour riot or in a gloomy mess. You want people to stop and stare like “Wow! How did she do that?” Here at RubyPlus we understand this plight and so we have put together this simple handy rule to help you get dresses in beautiful colours while looking FABULOUS!
From your primary school fine art class you’ve already learnt the primary colours (Red, Blue, and Yellow). Now you must learn about the four categories of colour codes.
Monochromatic look is basically using a dark shade of one colour with a lighter shade of the same colour, this is different from mixing one colour with white or using just one colour.
Complementary look is using simply mixing two opposite colours on the colour wheel. The colour contrast each other in a way that enhances them. (A complementary colour is the colour on the opposite side of the wheel)
Analogue coding is simply combining neighbour colours. That is, colours that are beside each other on the wheel
Split Complementary is combining two analogue colours with a complementary colour example a violet top an amber trouser and a purple sneakers.
Remember: All colours come from the combination of the primary colours. The colour wheel does not contain all the possible colour combinations. You can find that on Google images or figure them out.
Don’t be afraid to experiment and enjoy your new wardrobe.
