Coordinating Colors & Your Outfit

There are several basic ways to coordinate the colors of your accessories & your clothes. Ideally, you know what colors look best on you, so you often opt for those colors and their families when selecting a wardrobe. Maybe you venture out and try something new once in awhile, or at least I hope you do. Either way: here are some ideas and combinations to try that you may not have thought of.

Matchy-matchy.
(All one color.)
If you have fair skin, an all-over deep shade of red or blue will make your skin look like porcelain. If you have darker skin, an all-over shade of a bright florescent can make your complexion positively shine.


Slight variations.
(eg. light blue with dark blue, brown with tan, etc.)

+ +

Opposites attract. (Complimentary color schemes such as orange & blue, black and white, yellow and purple.)

+ +

Pastels. Easy on the eyes, perfect for spring.

+ +
Earthy tones. (Browns, greens, deep reds.)

+ +

Holiday themed. (It doesn’t always have to be cheesy.)

++

Black + any other color. (It’s true, black goes with everything.)

++

Girlie-girl.
(Pink, purple, and white.)

+ +

Clash. Yeah, we know you’re not supposed to wear red with pink. Or brown with black. Or leopard print with zebra print. But breaking the rules can come out fabulously if done right.

    Oh I love pastels! I just got some new pastel lime polish for my toes and I love it! I love greens but the only color I can wear with my pasty vampire skin is olive, which is ok. I can go wild with my toenail polish, that’s how I roll, LOL!
