Combining the colors of clothes is actually very easy, but we tend to be afraid of color . That’s why we settle for the most hackneyed combinations: blue/white, black/white, brown/orange and don’t explore the many variations that can look great.

There are many combinations that look good only because whoever wears them does so with confidence and their head held high . Other times, a combination that looks great on one person because of their personal coloring, doesn’t look so good on another, precisely because their coloring is not appropriate.

Check your clothes, make unexpected combinations and you will find possibilities that you had not even thought of.

White, black, beige, gray

These four colors are neutral. This means that they can be combined with absolutely all colors and they will look great.
Between them they always work. Black and white is a classic. Gray or beige with black or white also work well.

For example, black goes wonderfully with yellow, coral, turquoise, lavender, royal blue, magenta.

We always combine white with navy blue or red, without taking into account how beautiful it can look with mint green, mustard, purple, greenish blue.

Beige and gray can also be combined with unexpected colors, for example: beige and magenta, or gray and pink . Beige and mustard go very well together, as does gray with yellow.

Light and dark blues

The ranges of blues are wonderful. They combine with many things and among themselves they look very good.

We already know that navy blue is almost another neutral, which works very well with all greens, yellows, reds, pinks. Not so with browns and sometimes not with dark purples either.

Light blue is commonly used with black, khaki, dark blue and red, but it also looks great with army green, orange, burnt yellow and brown.

Turquoise blue works great with pink, coral and red. What’s more, the combination of turquoise blue with red and brown looks very pretty.

Greenish blue is a difficult but beautiful tone, which always goes well with navy blue, coral, pink and black.

Reds, pinks and oranges

These warm tones go very well with each other, although the red and orange combination can be scary. Actually, a bright red with a light orange looks great. Likewise,  a light pink with touches of red is an unexpected and very flattering combination. Even a magenta pink with red can look good.

Red goes well with olive green, all blues, brown and lavender and even purple-violet.

Red and pink don’t look good with yellow.  Orange can work with purple and even neon green . In that case, try to make the orange more of a salmon tone.

Greens and browns

There are many shades of green. There are combinations that look very pretty, for example red and bright green, but they have a Christmas connotation that takes away their charm. On the other hand,  olive green goes wonderfully with red.  Mint green works very well with orange. Bright green never looks bad with blue.

In the case of brown, there are also many variations, from chocolate to tobacco and caramel tones.

Dark brown works great with yellows, moss green, light and medium blues, red, orange and lavender.

On the other hand, it does not go well with either navy blue or purple.

Tobacco and caramel tones combine very well with blues, yellows, greens, reds, and pinks.

Yellows and purples

These are two colors that are often feared, when in reality they are magnificent and can look very good.

Between them they look very pretty. A bright yellow with a deep purple is a sensational combination.  Also the purple with burnt yellow.

Yellow goes well with gray, black, dark blue, browns.

Purple and its lavender variations can look great with orange, coral and shades of red.
