HOW TO MATCH THE COLORS
When we talk about matching colors we refer the combination of different shades that returns a pleasant appeal. However, if we talk about clothing, it is necessary also consider the overall image, hair and skin color. Have you ever seen this picture? Itten Circle | The theory behind colour matching | DandyGentleman It is the famous Circle of Itten which is used as basic guideline in color matching. How do you interpret? Simple! Look at the circle: the central triangle is formed by three primary colors, yellow, blue and red, which in turn they are resting. And so you find the orange formed by yellow and red, green formed by yellow and blue and purple formed by blue and red. These two elements together create an hexagon which is surrounded by a circle in which there are different shades of the colors we mentioned. The rule of matching colors according to the Circle of Itten is that you can match colors found in opposite position to each other, but never those close, except black and white, which tend to do well with all. For example, you can combine yellow and purple, but never yellow and red, and so on. You can use Itten's Circle to start with more tones common, but if you really want to make a color-proof matching, then it will be better also consider other shades and shades. More than describing yourself, in this case, it is appropriate show you some images that portray the shades that you can pull over. COLOR COMBINATION LIGHT BASE, DARK BASE AND LIVE IT In addition to primary and secondary, the shades do divide into: - colors with a light base: beige, white, ivory, gray clear; - dark base colors: black, dark gray, blue, Brown; - bright colors: all intermediate shades that do not belong to the previous groups (orange, red, green, etc.). With these three big groups in mind, we can recommend 5 combinations of two colors and 3 combinations of 3 colors.
