I actually think this color wheel is valuable in both my crafting life and my new found interest of updating my wardrobe. I think it can serve to be very helpful. I found this color wheel on fashion blogs here and here. Danielle breaks down the color wheel like this:
2. Colors that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.)
3. Colors directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.)
4. Colors that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
5. Colors that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
Since brown is a neutral, it will go with virtually any color on the color wheel. Pair a chocolate brown with cobalt blue or fuchsia or bright red—such a fun and bold combo. Of course white, black, and the hues of blue found in denim are also neutrals that go with just about anything.
So my next task is to go through my closet and figure out what pieces are usable and what I need to make my closet mix and matchable...boy this is going to be tough...
