Styling Guide: Color Matching Tips

FAIL-SAFE COLOR PALETTES FOR SUCCESSFUL DRESSING

1. Limit yourself to 3 colours (including neutrals) per outfit, unless the additional colours make up a pattern or print.

Try:

  • 2 colours and 1 neutral e.g. green, yellow and white
  • 1 colour and 1 neutral e.g. black and red
 
  • 1 colour and 2 neutrals e.g. purple, black and grey
  • 2 or 3 neutrals e.g. black and white
  • 2 or 3 warm neutrals e.g. brown and cream

2. Keep to one pattern only per outfit, even if the colours match.

Try:

  • 1 pattern and 1 or 2 plain neutrals
  • 1 pattern and 1 plain colour from within the pattern
  • 1 pattern, 1 neutral and 1 plain colour from within the pattern

(Bear in mind combinations from the color wheel, see color wheel here)
