Fashion 101: The Colour wheel

      Red, Yellow and blue are primary colours, orange, green and violet are secondary colours, red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet and red violet are intermediate colours. 
      Colour combination can be built by using the colour wheel to build particular colour schemes.

Here's a quick Breakdown:

  • colours directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange, violet and blue-violet etc)
  • colours that form right angles (90 degrees) with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange, blue and voilet blue etc)
  • colours directly across form each other (i.e. yellow and violet, blue and orange etc)
  • colours that form a T(i.e. blue, orange and violet-red: yellow, violet and red-orange etc)
  • colours that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow: violet, blue-green and red-orange etc)
Since brown is a neutral, it will go with virtually any colour on the colour wheel. Of course, white, black, and the hues of blue found in denim are also nuetrals that go with just about anything.
Go crazy with coloured bags, shoes, or scarves. When choosing jewelry, pair gold (or gold toned) jewelry with cool coloured outfits which have blue, pink or red undertone to them.
      The colour wheel can also be used with colour combination for your makeup. It can help you decide which makeup colour to use so that you do not match your eye shadow to your outfit.
Spruce your wardrobe with this colour wheel combo and look fabulous always.
