Creating a jersey? Admit it, it gets you eager and provides more fulfilment than you expected. You get to design something that will be worn for exciting activities and you get to choose what will visually symbolise a team! In the end, jerseys are worn to represent sportsmanship and healthy competitiveness. Who wouldn’t want a little bit of both?
Fabric & Ink
When we talk about colour combinations on a shirt, we usually refer to the colours of the fabric (specifically, the shirt itself) and the pattern (inks used). Colour combination can, however, refer to all of the colours of the fabrics alone in the case of jerseys because materials of different colours are typically put together to produce one jersey. In some circumstances, the colour combination of a jersey may refer to the colour of the first fabric, the colour of the second fabric, and the colour of the design ink all at once. That’s how exciting choosing jersey colours can be!
You can accomplish this by reusing the colours in your logo. A sports team’s emblem is often composed of two to three primary colours, such as blue, red, and yellow. You can use these colours as your base (body), sleeves and collar colours, and graphics colour, in that order. If your logo has eye-catching colours, you can continue with them so that all of the colours on your jersey complement well when combined. If your logo simply includes basic colours like black and white, you may up your game and be more creative. Choose a colour scheme that is bright and vibrant, or one that is forceful and ferocious — whichever you like.
However, you do not have to feel constrained by the colours of your logo or emblem. After all, the average jersey has three to four different colours, with one or two being the most prominent.
Think there’s nothing you can do with the sleeves? Think again. Consider again. Set-in sleeves and raglan sleeves can both be spiced up to complement the overall design of a jersey. So, if you like, use other colours for the sleeves as well! Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a one-colour jersey. It all depends on your choices!
Are we clear on where and which elements of the jersey can be coloured? If so, we’ll provide some pointers on how to figure out which colours go well together!
Colour Wheels & Harmonies
A good, harmonious colour combination usually refers to two colours that are immediately opposite each other on the colour wheel (complementary colour scheme) or three colours that are near to each other (analogous colour scheme). However, we have seen sports teams over the years appear in jerseys with irregularly or oddly-matched colours that, strangely, still function! As a result, if you want to experiment with colours that aren’t directly opposite each other on the colour wheel, go ahead.
With that said, here are some colour combinations that will look fantastic on jerseys!
Mustard Yellow & Deep Purple
Because these two colours are right across from one other on the Color Wheel, this colour matching is unquestionably successful. Yellow and purple both have a broad spectrum that ranges from lightest or brightest to darkest and deepest. The deeper tones of each colour include mustard yellow and deep purple in particular. Despite being in the ‘deep shade portions’ of their colour spectra, deep yellow (e.g. mustard yellow or gold) and deep purple (e.g. indigo) complement each other nicely due to the nature of each colour. Yellow is quite bright, but purple is more tranquil and stable. Any design that uses bright colours like yellow and dark colours like purple and blue will nearly always be eye-catching!
Black & Yellow
When Wiz Khalifa released Black and Yellow, he surely knew what he was talking about! You simply cannot go wrong with this daring colour combination. When combined, the strong black and lively yellow bring out the best in each other. Is your staff full of energy and excitement? If so, here is the route you should take!
Bright Red & Yellow
Nothing says fierceness like blazing red and yellow. Yellow, indeed. Yellow is a very adaptable colour. When combined with light blue, you have a colour scheme that is appropriate for a baby’s crib. When combined with red, you get the impression of a roaring lion. If your team’s image focuses around searing intensity, this is the colour combination you want to choose. Not to mention that yellow on red is visually appealing, something we’re sure you can’t refute.
Bright Teal & White
Many individuals are hesitant of having their jerseys in white because they believe it would seem simple, but we believe this is just because they haven’t found a colour that will stand out more when put on white. You’re fortunate to have found this post, so you’re one step ahead of those people! We’re mixing teal and white for this one. Be more daring than a black-and-white match. You should also abandon the belief that white looks better with dark colours. In fact, some bright colours look fantastic on white! All you have to do is choose the correct kind of bright colour, preferably one from the Cool family.
Orange & Dark Green
Green and orange, like yellow and purple, go well together because they are opposite each other on the Color Wheel. This combination is especially soft and visually appealing. Because dark green and deep orange are considered ‘silent’ colours, it is best to use these colours if your logo contains brighter colours. All of the colours AND your logo will be appropriately balanced on the shirt this way.
Bright Purple & Light Blue
This one is for the creative and cool team! While this is a combination of two cool tones, purple and blue can still work well together. Combining a light blue and a bright, almost neon purple may appear to be an unusual combination, but you can see why it works. In comparison to other colour combinations, this duo is substantially louder and more exciting. If having fun is what your team is all about, then this is your colour scheme!
Turquoise & Peach
A fairly unusual colour combination, but you’ll see what I mean when you transfer it to a piece of cloth. To begin, blue and orange are opposite each other on the Color Wheel. This should suffice, but we’ll continue on. This combo works because one colour clearly overpowers the other – which isn’t always a bad thing! When you choose a lighter tone from the Warm colours group, pairing it with another lighter tone (from the Warm or Cool groups) might make your entire jersey feel dull and low-spirited, which is the opposite of what you want your squad to appear like.
As a result, the best colour to choose is one that is deeper or darker and belongs to the Cool group. That is what will result in a well-balanced dynamic between the two colours.
Red & Off White
Red and white are a striking colour combination. But what could be better than red and white? OFF WHITE with RED Some may believe we’re playing it safe, but we’re actually playing it very well. Off white pairs well with all skin tones and looks far more natural on the body than the whitest of whites. People that wear white shirts with red ink designs are seen as brave and principled. They don’t mind if their design is slightly louder than others. Does this sound like your team? This is the one for you.
