Learn to Mix and Match Color: Color Wheel

If you’re ever unsure about how to mix and match color, the color wheel is the perfect guide to help you style an editorial-worthy look! Our Stylists recommend keeping a color wheel in your closet as a tool to help you play with color.

Build Your Palette

The easiest way to mix and play with color is to divide the wheel into warm and cool tones, then choose a color palette you love and build around it!

Warm Hues

If you have a preference for reds, oranges, and yellows you may be inspired to work with a warmer palette. Finish your look with neutrals that have undertones of yellow and red such as browns, creams and olives.

  2. I gotta say thanks for this – it makes me way more confident in the first pair of colored jeans I’ve ever bought. Lovely cranberry jeans, plus a black cami and a seafoam green cardigan from my latest fix. I love it! :)
