• Take cue from colour wheel to find harmonious colour combinations for your outfit. Colours that are found opposite to each other on a colour wheel are called ‘complementary colours’. Combining such colours will give you a high-impact contrasting look. Unless you are a very confident dresser it is best to avoid wearing complementary colours together.
