Are you tired of always wearing the same color combos together? Black and white will never go out of style, but sometimes it’s nice to add some color to your daily style.

Color mixing is not something you’re born knowing. It’s really just a technical skill of knowing the color wheel! Once memorized, it will be like second nature. In no time at all you’ll be whipping up some awesome, colorful, and unique outfits.

Here are 5 helpful ways to color mix to get you started:      

1. Ombre 
You know that style where it looks like your roots have grown out? Well, that was in the beginning when ombre was just becoming a thing and many people were giving their own go at it. I actually quite like ombre now! Anyways…to ombre your outfit, start with dark colors on the top and gradually work to lighter colors on the bottom.

2. Stick with one tone
Pastels. Neutrals. Jewel tones. Mix and match these (just one) in your outfit for an easy, yet sophisticated look.

3. Opposites/Complimentary
Now is the time to pull out that handy dandy color wheel I talked about earlier. In colors, complimentary means opposite. These look fab together because they clash and attract all at the same time. Opposites attract, right? Just pick a color on the opposite side of the color wheel. It is really that easy.

4. Analogous
What a word, hu? In colors, analogous means right next to each other on the color wheel. In complimentary, you’re going to find a color on the opposite side of the color wheel. In analogous, you’re going to find colors right next to each other! In order for this look to work, you have to pick 3 colors. Usually your main color is a primary color and the other two are the ones on either side of it.

5. Monochromatic
Monochromatic is wearing one color top to bottom. However, in order for monochromatic to fit into the color mixing category, play around with different hues and shades.
