5 unusual color combinations for clothes that actually work


Although we’re basically the embodiment of Wednesday Addams with our all-black wardrobe, there are certain times in our life when we want to add a pop of color. But where the heck do you start with color? How do you know which colors go and which don’t? How do you know whether it will suit you? How do you go on? Well, for starters you need to calm down, because choosing to wear color isn’t the end of the world. Even the most unusual color combinations can work if you risk it.

Pink and red

Wearing pink and red has always been considered a fashion faux pas, but it’s fair to say that the world has since done a U-Turn and are now loving this vibe. Red and pink are incredibly close on the color wheel, but they’re also just far enough apart to be completely different – and that’s why it’s a little bit of an attack on the eyes. However, this isn’t always a bad thing. Clashing colors can sometimes give your outfit the pop it needs, and we kinda love it.

Lemon and lilac

If you’re looking for a brand new color combination to rock during the Spring and Summer months, we think we’ve found it. Lemon and lilac may seem totally bizarre, but it’s also totally beautiful. The brightness of the lemon gives your outfit a pop, and will allow you to stand out from the crowd, while the lilac gives your outfit a toned-down, feminine element. It’s the perfect color combo if you’re going to a Summer wedding, because you’ll be the best dressed, but you still won’t upstage the bride…

Green and yellow

Wearing green and yellow is the best way to show the world that you’re at one with the world around you. The green represents the trees and the plants, while the yellow represents the sun. At least, that’s what we’re assuming. Without looking to deep into it, this color combination just looks incredibly stunning, and we think you should give it a go.

Pink and green

We live in a modern age where there are rarely any boundaries when it comes to clothes. In fact, the wackier the better! That’s why it’s so easy to mix your colors and try something new. If you’re into that, giving pink and green a go will definitely take your outfit up a notch. Try wearing green cigarette pants and a pink shirt, and watch as the whole world falls in love with your ensemble.

Sky blue and red

While blue and red is often seen together, when was the last time you saw sky blue and red together? It’s time to bring this trend back into the world, because it looks pretty awesome as a pairing. That’s because the red gives the outfit a pop of color, while the sky blue tones it down a notch, while adding a softer tone to the whole outfit. It’s great.
