Handling the color palette like a Pro:

The Color Wheel dilemma:
Honestly, I find the whole color wheel concept absurd!
It is incredibly confusing, complicated, and if aptly put useless when trying to figure out how to mix your colors in an outfit. In real life, you will never find the fashion expert using it for reference in any matter.
One may suspect that using the color wheel while trying to mix and match colors is some old wives' tale style writer regurgitate. Probably, because they had no idea how to teach it or do it.
Therefore, do whatever you feel right and comfortable with. The following are few such examples you can take help from.
Begin with a flat base:
We know you love it when you are the only one shining (hehe!). You can go with a flat base to bring out that pop and spark effect in your outfit. Be it your jacket or shoes, it totally depends on what you want to make your outfit's focus. You can start with the following colors as bases:
These colors will complement any color jacket or shoes and bring out the spark you wanted.
Therefore, remember to go with any neutral, flat base whenever you wish to stand out.
Pick a color you are feeling at the moment:
There are times when you are in the mood of a certain color and want to feel it. At times like these, don’t compromise and just go with it, you can adjust the intensity afterward. It is simple. If you pick a brighter color, then add in the lighter version from the exact same hue or vise versa.
Adding the colors of the same family can reduce the contrast, all the while adding the multiple-toned look. This will bring out a totally unique flavor.
Without actually looking like a rainbow collided you, you would feel sophisticated and bold.
