1. Contrast works!
You can always combine colors that contrast strongly. Black and white, for example, is an elegant classic. But navy blue and beige, red and green, or blue and orange are successful combinations too. People who combine contrasting colors come over as powerful and self-confident.
2. Go for tone-on-tone
Combine different shades of the same color. The result is a lovely, clean outfit. Soft tone-on-tone colors give you a calm, friendly aura.
3. Combine colors that are close to each other on the spectrum
Colors that are close to each other on the spectrum make a stylish combination. Take red and orange or beige and ecru, for example.
4. Use black, white or grey as your basis
Neutral colors like black, white or grey reinforce brighter colors and ensure balance in your outfit.
5. Choose fabrics with a range of coloring
It is easier to combine a variety of colors with a fabric like denim or a tweed jacket, made with yarns in varying tones. The greater the range of coloring, the more color combinations work.
