Finding Your Color

cwIf you could describe yourself as a color, what would it be? Try to pick a color that will compliment your skin tone. Yellow is my color because its bright, its happy,  and its unique to me. In this case, out of your closet, what color would you pick that best defines you? Find that color top or bottom and mix and match it with other colors in your closet.

Sometimes when I wear outfits, I piece them with color. Whether its piecing  a primary yellow top, with a secondary purple bottom or a tertiary blue-green bottom with a red top. This color wheel shows the relationship between primary, secondary, and tertiary colors.

  • Primary Colors are your three main colors that can not be mixed by any combination of other colors. (red, yellow, blue)

  • Secondary are the colors formed by mixing the primary colors. (green, orange and purple)

  • Tertiary are the colors formed by mixing primary and secondary colors. (yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-green, yellow-green)

  • Complementary are colors that are opposite from each other on the color wheel. (red and green, orange and blue)

 For some people who struggle with piecing outfits with color, this color wheel will give you some guidance on how you can mix and match primary colors with secondary and tertiary colors. Since I picked yellow as my color, here are a couple of outfits from my closet that are mixed with primary, secondary and tertiary colors.
