Color Theory Series : Spring in the Garden Edition.
Spring and Summer are probably my most favorite seasons. Fall and Winter are “cool” but as an island girl, I need the sun and bright colors to thrive. Now that the temperatures in Atlanta has risen, and the gloomy days have gone by, it is time to bask in nature and its vibrant colors.
According to Color Matters, “there are three basic categories of color theory that are logical and useful : The color wheel, color harmony, and the context of how colors are used.” Aerin Creer has to be my biggest inspiration when it comes to the color wheel theory. She is the first person I ever came across that used color theory in fashion. In today’s blog, we will be focusing on color harmony. The best example of color harmony is nature. For this look, I decided to pull inspiration from the greenery of the trees and the blueness of the sky.
Under the color harmony theory, we will be focusing on analogous colors. “Analogous colors are any three colors which are side by side on a 12-part color wheel, such as yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange.” says Color Matters.
As you can see, even the pink tulips work because they align with the analogous colors!
I opted for a dark violet blue and a willow spring green. I made sure that the greens and blues of my outfit matched perfectly.
This brings us to the end of this very short blog. Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more on this series of Color Theory.
