Pairing colours can either make your outfit or ruin it. So, when playing with different tones and collaborations, it’s only natural to feel a little uncomfortable. But, that doesn’t mean that you’ve got to stick to plain old black head-to-toe. We take you through a series of color-coordinated looks here that will excite your style and improve it. These trendy ideas will show you how to wear bright colours without clashing, from bold green and yellow outfits to chic pink and grey ensembles. Happy for a rainbow embrace? Here are the colour variations of Dressing Senseyou need to try this year.
Yellow and Green clothing
On a warm summer day, there is nothing crisper than the scent of freshly cut grass, and this color combination is just that. New and clean, most complexions look amazing in green and yellow. Focus on mustard, khaki and dark green if you’re warm-toned. Sharpen your wardrobe by adding vivid yellows and iridescent greens if you’re cool-toned.
Try partnering a smart yellow blazer with a plain grey skirt or pair of jeans to rock this color combination. Then, for a vibrant new regular look, add a fresh white shirt and green accessories. An simple way to add vibrancy and take your winter wardrobe through to the warmer months is color blocking. Only apply to your outfit some strong colors and watch the transformation. But keep it easy, mind, and don’t be afraid to change it up.
Blue and Pink Pale dressing sense
Other than pastels, nothing says spring. Soft pinks and blues can sound subtle, but they can be as eye-catching as a vibrant pop of colour when styled in the right way. You will be reminded of the gentle scent of jasmine and a mild spring breeze by this color combination.
For a daytime look, try a light blue cashmere sweater with a pink jacket that will melt away any winter remnants. With some pastel arm candy, loosen up a classic all-black outfit. Layer your accessories and don’t be shy about adding a pastel mix. This color combination works well with a statement shoe like a white stiletto to even out the color palette.
Blue and Red dressing
One of our all-time favorite looks is the red and blue color combination. With a fitted red jacket and killer boots, we love how you can totally transform a pair of jeans. It’s company on the top and group on the floor. Without going over the top, it’s sexy, and it smartens up a casual look.
Who can go past the classic striped Breton shirt? When paired with a pair of jeans and a red blazer, it is every bit the quintessential French Chanel-inspired look. Alternatively, to emphasize the red brightness & contrast of your blue jeans, you should wear a crisp white shirt underneath your jacket.
Cobalt Blue and Turquoise dressing sense
Combine cobalt blue with turquoise and you’ve got a strong and vibrant color match. Think ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and wear a mix of sophistication and class in this hue. You don’t really need to break it up with a neutral color like white or cream, because it’s one of those variations that can look fantastic with a flexible styling collaboration for both silver and gold accessories. You’re just restricted by your imagination.
Combined with a casual flat turquoise shoe, a royal blue dress will see you look flawless regardless of the occasion. You’ll be dreaming of nights spent partying in Santorini. Pair it with a statement necklace.
Blue and Orange dressing
The best color scheme to use with a colour blocking strategy is orange and blue. Choose blue pants and add an orange jacket, or choose a piece that blends the perfect combination of the two colors. Try out a burnt orange combination with a deeper navy blue for something a little different. Be sure to add the right shoe, whichever way you want to wear these colors. A nude shoe will give your outfit just the right focus and bind all the light into one lovely sunrise.
Maroon and Tan dressing sense
It can be hard to style tans and light neutral colors and leave you looking drab and rundown, but if you style them like maroon with a deep rich color, you’ll have a match made in heaven. To ensure you combine texture and hue, the trick to keeping it interesting and suitable for all skin tones is to try a corduroy skirt with a satin camisole. And while fashion trends typically advise you to stay clear of keeping from head to toe the same color scheme, this is one look where you don’t have to play by the rules.
Black and Orange clothing
The fresh black is whether it’s a dress that perfectly mixes this genius color mix or individual pieces, orange and black. Nothing more than a vivid, bold color lifts a black outfit and orange definitely does that.
Don’t be afraid to wear light colored pants. Try a high-waisted flare pant with this season’s must-have piece, a black crop top, and flaunt those killer abs. Try a loosely tucked-in bulky sweater for those of us who want to keep the six-pack undercover. Do not forget to add some comfort to the delectable Max Mara Zebra Printed Ponyskin wallet, whatever you pair it with.
Gray and Pink dressing sense
A perfect look that you can use all-year-round with some versatile parts is pink and grey. There are no limits on the way you can use this mix of clothing colors. A dark gray pant with a soft pink top may look just as free. Extend the color theme to your accessories and don’t forget to add the must-have piece of this season – the broad brim hat.
Coral and Purple Dressing Sense
Coral was once reserved for your lipstick, but one of the most versatile colors has now taken its place as the color made popular by Ita Buttrose. With faith, wearing purple and coral would make the ideal summer outfit.
For all skin tones, coral is flattering, and deep rich purple tones offer it just the right amount of contrast to ensure it’s not too striking. Try a coral top with a bright purple bag or shoe and use some gold accessories to break it up a bit.
White and Purple clothing
Nothing looks more beautiful when white goes with something than when it’s combined with purple. It makes the skin look creamy, and femininity and sensuality are just oozing. This marriage is so flexible that certain gold and silver accessories can also be combined and a daytime high tea look can be turned into a night out with friends.
