I go through color phases with my personal style, but one thing that remains is my love of unique color combinations! Even if your outfit is comprised of simple basics, incorporating unexpected hues instantly makes the overall look much more fashion-forward, fun, and interesting.
Hesitant to try colors you’ve never worn together? Don’t worry, I’ve done the road testing for you!
Here are 5 combos that always work well together and will instantly pull any look out of a predictable rut — get ready for a color overhaul!
While navy is a classic neutral, yellow adds an unexpected pop. It’s a fun alternative to white, which is a common pairing for the dark blue color.
The key with this one is to choose a mocha brown and shade of pink that complements it. When in doubt, stick to tones that are softer and on the pastel spectrum.
I love the look of bright green with a darker blue. It’s really wearable yet totally fun with a retro twist! While bright green is a bolder color you don’t see very often, the blue grounds it and makes it more wearable for everyday.
This combo is a fall classic, and yet you don’t see it that often anymore. Mustard can be tricky on some skin tones, so if that’s the case, let burgundy take the lead and accent it with mustard or gold accessories.
You don’t always need a bright hue to be unexpected. One of my favorite looks is a mix of multiple neutrals, with at least one pattern or texture thrown in, to give the overall outfit a bit more depth.
