Why It Works

In order to avoid looking like a Christmas ornament or the Italian flag the best way to wear Red and Green is to mix tints and shades. Like a mint top and hot pink bottoms or olive green and red–military style. This combo is very classy and very edgy. Style at your own risk.

Chasing Sun Rays: Yellow and Purple

Why It Works

Yellow and purple together are sunflowers smiling up at the purplish-blue sky on a lovely sunny day. And who wouldn’t be made happier by this lovely spring scene? So imagine putting the two colors together in an ensemble. You’d brighten everyone’s day, not to mention infuse an air of newness–represented by the color yellow– and royalty–represented by the color purple. These two are a match made in the heavens.

Opposites Attract: Blue and Orang

Why It Works

Blue and orange is my all time fave combination. Blue with its cool undertones giving off a spirit of calm and orange with its warm undertones inspiring trust are a must have combo this summer. They are two colors that are both freeing. This corally orange top with these polkadot blue shorts are so girlie and chic.



Shades of Gray: Black and White
