MIX IT UP! Add a splash of color to your outfit

Have you seen our latest video staring Spankie Valentine all about color combos?
If you haven't take a look:

The easiest way to make sure you're not clashing? Take a spin on the color wheel! No seriously!

Colors across from each other on the color wheel are called complementary and are very visually appealing when paired together! Or pick three colors that sit next to each other to the color wheel- like yellow, green and blue. You can always dare to think out of the color wheel but this is a great tool for when you are thinking of what you could wear with a new outfit! 

So in case you need more outfit inspo- here's a little bit more:

Looking to add a bit of color but don't want to splurge on a new outfit? Make your accessories and shoes the pops of color over a neutral top and jeans. We loved these cranberry heels- they are perfect for fall and can easily be worn casually or dressed up. Turquoise and other natural stone jewelry is on trend and compliments those heels perfectly!

Love denim jackets but stumped on how style them other than over denim? Try layering it over a dress or jump suit. Really want to know how to make them pop? Pair them with denim's bff, tangerine! Tangerine and blue perfectly compliment each other by bringing out the best in both shades

Mixed prints have been all the rage for the past few seasons but it can be kind of challenging to find to prints that compliment and don't clash. The easiest way to pull of this trend? Keep it simple. This black and white outfit makes it a no brainer. Also stick to the classics- polka dots and stripes are simple prints that pair together perfectly . Other easy combos herringbone/stripes, stripes/hounds tooth, plaid/polka dots.

So what do you think? Are there any other color combos you like? Will you be mixing patterns? Let us know in the comments!
