      MONOCHROMATIC COLOR
            SCHEME
This is a one-color plan that uses different tints, shades and
                    intensities of the color



           BLUE
ANALOGOUS COLOR SCHEME
This color scheme uses related, or neighboring colors on the
color wheel with varying values and intensities of the colors.
  COMPLEMENTARY COLOR
        SCHEME
 This color scheme uses opposite hues on the color
wheel. These colors are across from each other on the
          wheel and have great contrast.
       SPLIT-COMPLEMENTARY
           COLOR SCHEME
This color scheme uses three colors, one color with the two
          colors on each side of its complement.




                          VIOLET
      TRIAD COLOR SCHEME
This color scheme combines three colors equidistant on the
       color wheel and has a great deal of contrast.
   ACCENTED NEUTRAL COLOR
          SCHEME
This color scheme combines white, black, gray or sometimes
              beige with a bright color accent.
  All colors are beautiful, depending on
              personal taste.
 If not used wisely or combined well, color
can cause apparel to look too gaudy or very
                    drab.
  Harmony results when hues, values and
intensities are combined in a pleasing way.
