The Colour Wheel and the Closet – Split Complimentary Style

Eye catching and bold..

Hello again fashion-savvy friends!

If you’re looking for a bold and eye-catching wardrobe, split complementary colours are the way to go. It is a bit tricky to get it right, but trust me when done correctly one can create a stunning look that’s both harmonious and trendy.

To rock this colour harmony, you need to start with the basics, like a neutral colour as your base. Think black, white, or grey. That way, you’ll balance out the boldness of the split complementary colours. A consideration your need to make, before you start picking your colours, is your skin tone, eye colour, and hair colour.  For instance, if you have warm-toned skin, you might want to choose split complementary colours that are warm, like red-orange and yellow-green.

Now, this is the fun part! To avoid overwhelming your outfit with too many colours, use the 60-30-10 rule. Here is how it works:  60% of your outfit should be your base colour, 30% should be your split complementary colours, and 10% should be an accent colour.  It’s like baking a cake, except instead of ingredients, you’re adding colours to your outfit.

Patterns are also a great way to incorporate split complementary colours into your wardrobe. They add the right amount of spice to your outfit. Look for patterns that incorporate your chosen split complementary colours, or mix and match patterns for a more daring look. Oh, and don’t forget the accessories! Add a scarf, belt, or shoes in one of your split complementary colours to tie the whole look together.

So, there you have it, fashionistas! Experiment and mix and match until you find a combination that works for you.  Soon you’ll be able to create stunning, eye-catching outfits that are sure to turn heads. Remember, fashion is all about having fun, so embrace your creativity, and let your personality shine through your wardrobe!
