This article wants to share some basic logic of color matching with you. Let everyone know some very practical color matching rules. Generally speaking, if you wear the right color, the match is half the battle.
In fact, many fashion designers refer to the 12 color wheel when matching. So we also have to learn to look at the 12 color wheel and apply it to our daily outfits.
Each of the 12 color wheels occupies 30°. The smaller the color span, the more mature and stable the style. Also easier to put together. The larger the color span, the more advanced the style, and the more difficult it is to match.
Same Color Matching
The same color within 30°, but with different shades.
The effect of matching the same color system is visually very unified. This is a super classic entry-level matching technique.
Similar Color Matching
Color matching within 60°
This kind of collocation not only maintains the general visual unity, but also has a sense of layering and gradient. This is a very practical color choice.
Contrasting Color Matching
Color matching with a span of 120°. Under normal circumstances, it is difficult for ordinary people to control. If it doesn't match well, it will look cluttered.
Complementary Color Matching
A color that spans 180°. This is a relatively high-end color matching, and if it is matched properly, it can make people's eyes shine.
Black White Gray
If you find color matching difficult. You can use black, white and gray to connect and transition.
In addition to learning color matching, you also need to pay attention to the arrangement and proportion of various colors.
For the proportion of color blocks, beginners can apply the 2,8 rule. Advanced players can learn the 3,6,1 golden rule.
Dark-above-light-below and Light-above-dark-below are also commonly used formulas. If you're using the dark-above-light-below rule, remember not to put the dark color of your top down on the center of gravity. That will make you look smaller.
Please be careful not to have more than three colors on the whole body
