I hope you have been trying to create color combinations! So far we have worked with 2 and 3 color combinations but today it may get a little difficult. Tetradic or rectangle color combining uses 4 colors! Are you ready for this?

What are Tetradic Colors?

Tetradic colors are four colors arranged into two complementary pairs. Some examples include:

  • Yellow, orange, blue, & violet
  • Yellow-green, orange-yellow, red-violet, & blue-violet
  • Yellow-green, blue-green, red-violet, & red-orange

Benefit of Wearing Tetradic Colors

  • This is a rich color scheme that offers many styling variations.


  • Combine colors by using various clothing and accessories pieces. 

How to Wear Tetradic Colors

  • Grab your Style Profile and look at your best colors.
  • Decide what color you feel like wearing today.
  • Look at a color wheel, find the color you want to wear and its tetradic colors. 
  • Pick out clothes and accessories in those colors.
  • Remember, you can always pair neutrals with them too!
  • Wear the clothes and have an awesome day!
