Color Matching

My husband has a fashion sense all his own. On a number of occasions I've tried purchasing him things and have even gone shopping with him to offer some gentle guidance. He rarely takes my advice although on our last trip I did convince him to purchase plain front khakis -- a big success in my mind. I say all of this to set the stage - one morning he was dressing for work and he put on a pair of olive colored pants with a navy plaid long sleeve dress shirt. Apparently the look on my face said it all. "What's wrong with what I'm wearing," he asked. "You don't match," I said. And so the debate began. Ultimately he wore it to work that day, and I felt like I'd sent him off in plaid pants and a polka dot shirt. But it also got me thinking about my own fashion sense and how I tend to migrate to black all the time.

In an effort to educate my husband and to liven up my own wardrobe, I began searching sites. There's a ton of stuff out there, mostly complicated things like color wheels and hues. Who has time to read all that? Then I stumbled on to an article from womensfashion.suite101.com. It had a wonderful little bulleted quick reference list. Since finding it, I've ventured out a bit. I hope you'll check it out too. Now if only I could get my husband to read this.
