If you have this type of color wheel the combinations are pretty simple. Split Complementary and Triadic are denoted by the two triangles. Analgous is colors that are right next to each other. For example: violet, blue, and blue-green.

Since I had such a hard time finding combinations, I CHEATED! I went on Pinterest and searched color palettes. Now this was fun! I just looked for combinations I really loved and tried to put together outfits based on those. I now have a new love!! The color combinations are endless!
