When you match complementary colors you show confidence and knowledge about fashion, and when you do so you create an impressive and color-rich palette. A good rule of thumb is that you shouldn’t have more than three colors in your outfit. So you need to choose three colors that you will match throughout your outfit. When you add more, it starts to get a bit risky.
