Inside Out Style: What is medium-high value contrast and how to create outfits with itContrast seems to be a topic that many find kind of tricky so I wanted to post more pictures to give you examples of different kinds of contrast.

Here I’ll be showing you examples of Medium-High Contrast which sits in between Medium Contrast (that is a medium depth color with either a very light or very dark colour) and High Contrast (which is a very light color with a very dark colour).
