When you're wearing an outfit that has a lot of tonal colours you can use accessories to add a pop of a contrasting colour to inject much needed excitement and pull the whole look together. Don't overdo it though or the effect will be more of a pepper spray than a splash. Using a colour wheel is a great way to identify which colours compliment, contrast or tone together. 

It also helps to know on which side of the colour wheel your skin undertone sits; in a nutshell if the veins on the back of your wrist appear blue or purple you have a cool undertone where as if they appear more green or yellow you have a warm undertone. Once mastered, this simple tool makes pulling an outfit together a doddle.
