Many girls are afraid to buy clothes in bright colors for their wardrobe. Mainly because they don’t know how to combine such colors correctly, and they think that they will look ridiculous in them. Therefore, they usually choose things of calm tones. Although in many cases bright colors would suit them incomparably better than quiet and neutral ones. In the article we will talk about how best to combine light, joyful shades in clothes. In addition, these color combinations are useful for designers.
The importance of the right combination
Since the secret of creating a bright and harmonious image lies not in the selection of famous brands, but in the manifestation of delicate taste, it is important to be able to combine colors correctly, especially since they are the first thing people around you see. Bright accessories and clothing details are quite capable of raising the mood in the gloomy autumn-winter period, as well as reflecting the inner state in spring and summer, when everything around begins to bloom and smell fragrant. If the colors are not quite right, it is immediately noticeable and causes a feeling of disharmony.
Let's go through the basic rules for combining bright colors. First, they should be paired with neutrals, which will almost always be a good choice, with the exception of pairing with black. Formally, it is also considered neutral. But when using it and bright flashy tones at the same time, the image can turn out to be defiant and catchy. However, if your goal is to stand out from the crowd quite radically, then this combination may suit you very well.
You can do more elegantly: do not make black the main color in the composition, but combine it with a bright and neutral color, such as white, beige, gray, navy blue or brown. By the way, the color that goes well with all the others is considered neutral. Such tones are not taken into account when creating an image using the three-color rule, which implies a limit on the number of primary colors in the wardrobe, so they allow you to dilute it with a variety of shades without violating the integrity of the image.
Especially fresh and spectacular appearance is obtained by combining one bright shade and several neutral ones. Gray and beige, for example, pair beautifully with soft pastels. For example, with pink, lilac, light yellow. There is no risk that you will look like a cream cake. The same goes for the combination of these base colors and neon.
In addition, neutral colors have the advantageous ability to make overly bright looks more subdued. For example, a gray cardigan might welladjust your appearance if the rest of the clothing turned out to be defiant in combination.
Color wheel rule
The second rule of color combination says that it is necessary to combine colors that are on diametrically opposite sides of the color wheel. Such shades are called complementary. They complement each other very well. In the image, they will look perfect if you dilute clothes of the same color with a small accessory in a complimentary color.
The third principle involves the combination of various shades of the same color. This is almost always a good solution, but the main thing is not to overdo it.
The fourth rule allows you to combine colors that are close to each other in the color spectrum. For example, blue and bright red are part of purple. Therefore, their combination looks spectacular and beautiful.
And it is also worth remembering a wonderful example on which you can learn successful color combinations - natural natural landscapes. They sometimes have very bright hues, and you can hardly see how they blend tastelessly with other tones in the landscape.
