Try looking at a color wheel, find the direct opposite color, (purple), and then look at the color to the left, and to the right. It’s a way to be complementary without being horrendous. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3092/3245559793_a85619d5b9.jpg
You can also balance it out by having a smaller yellow complement, like a strip of yellow on a blouse, thin yellow bangles, or a small yellow charm necklace. It’s all about having a cohesive look.
It’s great to have a neutral palette, because it shows off the bright colors of your outfit!posted over 7 years ago
