Incorporating Color

These colors appear opposite each other on the color wheel. Pairing these colors can sometimes make your outfit too intense and look like a page right out of a color book. Use them sparingly to pull together an outfit of color unless you are looking for a dramatic effect. Below are examples of the complements blue and orange used both subtly and with more of an impact.

Any particular colors that you love to wear?

Complimentary colors? You are bringing back interior design classes from college. :)

I love navy/orange combination! I like when people use complimentary colors for professional photos. It's better than being really matchy-matchy, IMO.

I love blues, greens and pinks together, especially jewel tones. I don't think I'm very good at pulling off color combos that include orange or yellow, and I envy anyone who can wear a pretty mustard yellow!
