Choosing complementary colors on the color wheel is one way to make sure that a shirt and pants match. Colors opposite each other on the wheel are complementary.
There are a few rules to follow to make sure clothes match.
- Gray tones colors down
- Wear a monochromatic outfit
- When in doubt, wear white >
If wearing a bright shirt, gray will help lessen the vividness of the color so the wearer does not look tacky.
Choosing different hues of the same color will help make sure the outfit matches.
White matches everything and makes any outfit look pulled together. It matches patterns, stripes and any color under the rainbow.
