Cadet (#4A646C) is a somewhat saturated and cool shade of blue commonly associated with clear (78.0% match), urban (77.9% match), and dapper (77.5% match). When Cadet is combined with Pale Silver, it appears clean and dapper. When joined with Dim Gray, the mood becomes more placid. When Cadet is added to Skobeloff Green, it evokes bitter and clear feelings. When paired with its complementary color #6D524A, a lighter, cooler, and more saturated variant of the shade "Medium Taupe", it can convey thorough or earnest emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #6D4A65 (a shade of "Eggplant") and #656D4A (a shade of "Fern green"), the resulting palette becomes softer and cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "elegant" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a reasonable and traditional atmosphere.
