When you don’t know what colors go with one another, you could always stick with the basics. Black and white, black and gray, gray and white, etc. It gets tiring because as a person whose closet isn’t just filled with neutral colors, you’re going to take out those bright reds and oranges once in a while. So when it comes to mixing, it’s really okay if you don’t have a knack for it. It’s a skill and like any other skills, it can be learned. What you want to do with colors is by mixing them together but within the same color family. For example, wouldn’t it look more polished if you combine earth tones with earth tones? Pastel and pastel? One easy way to know if both colors look good together is by using a color wheel. When they’re opposites on the color wheel, chances are, they complement one another. Remember, “Opposites attract”. The base is the foundation of an outfit. It’s also where you should start. Base pieces are usually the classic and timeless ones. Different shades of the same color or similar color will always look good together. So try it out yourself. Mix prints with neutral to get that casual and easy vibe. A pastel floral skirt will go absolutely anything. For a girly look, pair it with a white or cream top then finish off your outfit with a classic handbag and flats or high heels When picking an accent, it’s what you’re going to wear with your base. The accent is usually a nice top, a cardigan or layering pieces that you’ll wear under your jacket or base. Like most of your base pieces, you also need variety. The accent mostly depends on your personal preference and work environment. Just remember that you need variety. You don’t need lots of those in the same color. Find a print that will be your guide, also to help in making your outfit pop even more. A print should be from a designer you love or maybe something out of your own closet. Just have fun with your combinations. When you stick to the tips above, you should be fine.
