Color Blocking With Color Wheel

Learning to combine interesting shirts and ties is not as taxing as it sounds. The concept of color matching continues to stump even the most stylish of men. One may be a good at matching solid-collared ties with solid-collared shirts, but with trends emphasizing on mix-and-match approach to fashion, one would have to stick to these few rules of color wheel to become the pro:

It’s very simple.  Pick any color. The sections on either side of the color in question are similar, directly opposite is complementary and contrasting hues are separated by three sections of the wheel.

For example, green is opposite red, making it a complementary color; blue and yellow are either side of green, making them similar colors; and both purple and orange are three sections away from green, making them contrasting.
