Using Color Relationships to Choose What to Wear

Complimentary colors, which are located directly across from each other on the color wheel, can make a bold statement and help you stand out. I recommend using one of the colors as a base and incorporating the other color as an accent, either in a smaller piece of clothing or in a pattern to avoid overwhelming the overall look.

For a triad color scheme, you can select three colors that form an equal-sided triangle on the color wheel. This combination can create a striking effect, so it's advisable to choose one or two colors as the main focus and use the other color sparingly.

In the case of a square or tetradic color scheme, you choose four colors on the color wheel that form a square or rectangle. It might be challenging to incorporate four colors into a small family's outfit scheme, but it can be achieved by selecting patterns with multiple colors or using smaller accents. Once again, I suggest emphasising one or two colors while using the remaining two or three in smaller amounts or opting for muted versions of the colors.

Analogous colors consist of three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. This creates a more subtle and harmonious look.

For a monochromatic color scheme, you stick to a single color but use different shades of it, such as lighter or darker variations. This approach works well for coordinating outfits among two or three people. For example, mom could wear a dark green dress while the baby wears a light green romper. Other colors or neutrals can be added for the rest of the family.

Remember, this is just a starting point, and you can use these ideas to help determine what colors go well together. If you need further assistance, feel free to ask me for recommendations.
