So this morning I'm wearing purple, yellow, green and pink and not to forget the neutrals!!
Before I had an yellow addiction, purple was ( and still is) my favorite color and co-incidentally yellow is an excellent contrast, and hence a great companion of purple. I have lost count how many times I've paired these two colors.
Let me show you the color wheel to give you a better idea of how these colors work.
As per the color wheel, purple and yellow are directly opposite and hence considered complementary colors. Other examples are- red and green, blue and orange.
2. Analogous colors:
Analogous colors are any three colors which are side by side on a 12 point color wheel, for example green, yellow-green and yellow.
3. Primary colors:
Red, Yellow and Blue are considered as the primary colors.
4. Secondary Colors:
Green, orange and purple are the secondary colors.
5. Tertiary Colors:
All others other than the primary and secondary colors.
The color wheel is a good way to learn how to color-block for those who are not confident with colors.
Pairing the complementary colors is a bright, bold way of color blocking. If you want to play it safe you can stick to the analogous colors, i.e. colors of the same family.
Other than that, you can play with the primary colors and the secondary colors, and if you are as adventurous as myself, just do not bother what the color wheel says, pick up any two or three colors of your choice ( as long as they look good together) and rock them!!
In addition to that, the best way of color blocking is to wear solids but you can always twist it a little by wearing prints with solids.
For me, I believe in chucking the rules and wearing whatever makes me happy and hence today I'm making my deep purple dreams come true!
