The color wheel and the relationship between tints, tones and shades go hand in hand complementing each other and with the use of appropriate proportions, one aces at color blocking one’s outfit keeping disorganization of colors at bay.



The color wheel consists of 12 basic colors known as hues. Hues that are mixed with white are called tints and hues that are mixed with black are called shades and colors that are mixed with grey are called tones.
