So, what is contrast?

In the fields of art and beauty, this phrase is widely used. It reflects the distinction between zones of light and dark. In the world of art, a picture's overall tone is influenced by the light and dark areas in it. The contrast level or the brightness and darks on your face can have an impact on how you look. The way particular clothes fit you is one example.

 

 

High contrast vs low contrast

If there's anything that best describes low contrast, it's monochromatic looks. Both the dark and light hues are just right—neither is dark or overly bright. High contrast makes anything considerably more visually appealing. The dark colors are extremely dark, and the light colors are extremely bright. The artwork is brought to life by the vibrant colors. Medium contrast can also be seen in faces and images. This balance, as you might expect, is a bit of a medium ground. The intensity of the light and dark colors is both medium. A picture that is neither very startling nor overly muted is an outcome of this neutrality.

High contrast vs low contrast in fashion

When the colors in your outfit have similar values or intensities, it's referred to as "Low contrast." This means that if you were to wear an outfit that is entirely composed of light-value colors, it would be deemed "Low Contrast." The same applies to dark-value colors.

An outfit would be classified as "Medium Contrast" if it included a combination of light and medium value colors, medium and dark value colors, or medium dark value colors and medium light value colors. Your outfit could be labeled "High Contrast" if it contained a combination of light and dark value colors.

High contrast vs low contrast examples

Now, let’s dig into real-life examples of people with high, medium, and low contrast so you can grasp the idea.

 

Low contrast

Reese Witherspoon, Amanda Seyfried, Elle Fanning, and Cate Blanchette all have blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. All of them share the same light value.

 

 

How to dress?

It goes without saying that you should wear colors that complement your skin tone. Wearing earthy, neutral hues or colors that are adjacent to one another on the color wheel is advised (blues and purples, reds and oranges, and so on.). It will produce a steady intensity that complements your facial features.

 

 

Medium contrast

Jennifer Aniston and Angeline Jolie are brilliant examples of medium-value contrast. Their skin is neither fair nor dark, they have blue eyes, and their hair is blondish brown.

 

 

How to dress?

If you wear a black dress, the color could be far too dark. However, if you combine medium light in value and have a low-medium value contrast, they work well with your coloring when you wear them.

 

 

High contrast

A high contrast person possesses features that are both dark and light. Courtney Cox and Zooey Deschanel are great examples of high-value contrast . They both have really dark hair and bright blue eyes.

 

 

How to dress?

If you belong to this group, you ought to dress in a way that creates an equally striking contrast between light and dark. Your skin tone will be complemented by the style, giving you a unified appearance. Wearing plenty of black and white is usually what comes to mind first. Although this color scheme is a great illustration of contrast, you may also have fun and select additional hues that go well with your complexion. On the color spectrum, pair colors that are far apart. Combinations such as red and green and blue and yellow complement each other effectively. Try experimenting with solids with colored highlights, patterns, and other things!

 

 

Contrast and its relevance to your color palette

In a previous article, we’ve discussed the 12 color seasons and how to find yours and dress accordingly. Well, knowing your contrast value is one of the key aspects of knowing what your color season is. For example, most of those who belong to the summer and spring seasons usually have fair skin, colored eyes, and blonde hair. The opposite is true for those with darker skin; they usually belong to autumn or winter seasons according to their undertone.
