Mixing and matching three (or more) different colors may seem like a daunting and intimidating thing to do; plus it’s already hard enough to mix two colors together! However, mixing up and spicing up your wardrobe combinations may be a way to bring extra life to your OOTDs and maybe a way to bring back old pieces that are now just at the back of your closet, waiting to be worn.
Here are some ways to make sure you know what you’re doing!
If you’re not sure about the palette you are going for, try checking online for cute color palettes or combinations to ease your mind from overthinking. You can go on Pinterest and just search “color palette” and you’ll get thousands of results. Here you get a general idea of what normally goes well together or not.
Here’s the first look! Got this idea from seeing this cute palette on Pinterest!
Getting inspired by nature
There are so many different colors mixing and matching around us! During pink sky sunsets, walking in the park, or the colors of plants and flowers!
This second look is inspired by popular summer colors I’ve seen on the beach, I’ve combined the colors pink, green, and yellow.
Getting to know the color wheel (again)
To be extra sure you know what you’re doing whenever you’re mixing and matching outfits, it doesn’t hurt to relearn how to use the color wheel! To create color combinations, you may either go analogous, complementary, or triadic.
Analogous colors are three shades of colors that are right beside each other on the color wheel;
Complementary colors are colors that are directly opposite with each other;
Triadic are colors that are equally spaced on the color wheel;
In this outfit, I followed an analogous palette, using the colors blue, green, and yellow. Combining three colors doesn’t mean combining three different pieces together, you may use statement accessories to allow the right amount of color to your outfit!
