All ideal clothing color combinations are based on the "color wheel". This special device is used not only by professional stylists, but also by ordinary people. With its help, you can learn how to correctly combine shades. So it is possible to distinguish both monochromatic colors, which have many shades of different saturation, and colors that are absolutely polar to each other. It is enough to know a few rules of color combinations so that the shades in clothes are in harmony with each other in the best possible way.
Harmony of two polar colors
The ideal combination is complementary or opposite shades. It can be a combination of yellow and purple; red and green; blue and orange. Opposite pairs harmonize with each other through contrast.
Extremely distant color pairs
Another harmonious combination of opposites and their shades. If in the first case it was a question of the contrast of pure color combinations, then here not only colors are taken into account, but also their shades. Due to them, the color transition is softer and less flashy. So, ideal harmony can be created: yellow and pink, red and turquoise or red and light green, etc.
Shades of the same color do not create contrast and are in perfect harmony with each other, these are ideal and always relevant combinations. If you are afraid to overdo it with paints, choose their shades and be sure - you can't go wrong.
If adjacent ones imply a choice of shades of the same color, then similar ones are combinations of neighboring colors and their shades. So, for example, will look great: yellow and green, red and purple, blue and dark green. Such colors do not contradict each other and do not create a game of contrast, mutually complementing shades that are close in spirit.
Again, we are talking about neighboring colors and their shades, but this time the combination is based on the principle - "the more, the better." Create some color overflow using 3-4 shades. These can be, for example, the following combinations: yellow-orange-red, blue-cyan-turquoise-green, purple-burgundy-coral, etc.
This combination of colors and shades is built on the basis of creating a triangle on the "color wheel". Choose the first color of the triad - it will be the apex of the triangle, mentally or on paper, create an equilateral triangle to define the other two colors. So, ideal in such a combination will be: yellow-blue-red, green-purple-orange, etc.
Another triad that allows you to create more beautiful color combinations by playing on contrast. The only difference is in the construction of the color triangle. If in the classical scheme it is isosceles, then the contrasting one is created according to the principle of a sharp cone. In such combinations, two out of three colors echo, interacting harmoniously and emphasizing each other. These can be combinations of blue, purple and yellow; turquoise, light green and red, etc.
Four-color contrasting harmony
The essence of this combination is the use of 4 colors. Any two opposite colors and 2 more adjacent ones on either side are selected. Such combinations are designed to create a special charm, they are moderately catchy and presentable at the same time.
Similar to a contrasting harmony, only a softer combination of colors and shades, created according to the principle of the classic triad with the addition of another polar color. These four color combinations create a complete picture that is pleasing to the eye and looks very bright and original.
Another combination built on 4 colors, this time using an equilateral square. These can be shades of light green, orange, burgundy and blue; yellow, coral, purple and turquoise, etc.
A similar combination of four colors, built on the principle of not a straight, but a rectangular square on the palette. This combination creates even greater contrast and a riot of colors. This style of clothing is suitable for bright, shocking personalities who are not averse to experimenting and adding even more colors to their already boring life.
It would seem that six colors are too much. However, their correct combination will allow you to achieve a truly bright and stylish look. Create an equilateral hex on the palette for the most harmonious colors. Composing a further image is not an easy task that requires practice, since your ultimate goal is to connect the resulting shades together. Do not try to fit absolutely all colors on clothes at once, add contrasting jewelry and accessories, play with the color of handbags and clutches, experiment. Only then will you be able to create a truly perfect image.
