When it comes to complementary and clashing colours, it can be hard to know which hues work together and, well, which just don’t. Really, it’s down to trial and error (our fashion mantra is to try everything once) and learning from your mistakes. However, should time be of the essence, we’re here to help.
We’ve scoured the feeds of our favorite style bloggers to bring you the very best color pairings. Some are a natural fit, but there are also a couple of combinations we didn’t think could look so sleek.
So what should you wear with khaki? What’s the perfect match to lemon yellow? Keep scrolling to discover the chic color combinations influencers always rely on…
Khaki and Cognac
Style Notes: Brown and green needn’t be reserved for commandos or hikers. In fact, they actually look incredibly expensive when worn together. Keep your clothing khaki and your accessories cognac (a slightly warmer and richer iteration of brown) for the best results.
Pale Blue and Lemon
Style Notes: Usually, wearing pastel on pastel means you’re teetering close to the edge of looking like an Easter egg, but not where blue and yellow are concerned. The contrasting blend of warmer and cooler shades makes for a directional yet classic combination.
Biscuit and cream
Style Notes: Minimalists have been wearing this tonal pairing for tears, and it’s high time you gave it a try too if you haven’t already. Shades of cream and light camel look effortless together and somehow manage to make even the most casual of ensembles look slick. Add black accessories if you think the outfit needs some definition.
