Here are a few Tips & Tricks
- Try to coordinate outfits without looking overly "matchy". Avoid wearing the same colors instead find a color palette you love and piece together items from that palette that are complementary to each other. Below is a color wheel to help find a complementary match to whatever color you choose, which would be the opposite color on the wheel. If you want a more subtle look that is not overly matchy try a analogous look with a pop of a complementary color.
- Add accessories to pump up an uninspiring ensemble. A hat, scarf and boho necklace can give a lackluster outfit the right amount of punch and is a great way to add that complementary color. Bright hues in small doses are great!
- Layers are fantastic for boys and girls. Add in layers (jackets, vests, leggings and tights) and accessories (hats, scarves, necktie or bow ties, and headbands) to give your kiddos outfits with that stylized look.
Pick a color on the color wheel then draw a straight line across the color wheel, this is the color’s complement. These colors are basically opposites, meaning if you choose red and draw a straight line to the opposite side you will get green. The complementary colors are used to offset the main color and are thought to complete each other. There are also split complementary colors which means that once you pick the complimentary you choose one of the colors next to it giving it a more subtle look.
Analogous colors are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. For example, yellow, green-yellow, and green are categorized as analogous colors. The word ‘analogous’ is defined as two things with a similar function or feature that are comparable to one another.
