The Colour Red: Analogous Colours

This is part of a series of posts about colour.  This month I am focusing on the colour red.

If you look at red on the colour wheel, you will see on one side of it a red/purple colour and on the other side a red/orange colour.  When you put those colours together, it gives you necklaces like the ones pictured below!

Red Analogous Coloured BeadsWhat I like about putting these colours together is that they will then work with lots of different outfits.  Whether you want to add some more colour to a red top, or brighten up a more neutral grey top, the colour combinations work beautifully (see below).

Analogous colour schemes look great, and are easy to wear.

Next week I’ll look at some other colours that look great with red.
