Let’s talk color theory. If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite color says about you along with how the colors you wear can project a mood, let’s dive right in. Color impacts our mood and whether we realize it or not, influences how others perceive us as well.
So what exactly is color theory? I like to think of it as the science of using color with color. Colors have intricate relationships with each other and there’s a LOT of them. That’s where a color wheel comes in, it simplifies how we visualize those relationships and choose a color palette.
From Gen Z yellow to Millennial Pink, trends come and go, and when it comes to combining the best color outfit recipes there are grounding hues that are best styled together. I thought I would share how I tackle the color wheel from day-to-day and hopefully inspire you to trust your own eyes when it comes to styling color.
