Risky Fashion: Unlikely Color Combinations

By Jewelrygal @1928jewelry

How risky do you go when it comes to fashion? If you’ve been flipping through all the fashion glossies this year, 2011 is all about bold and bright colors. This might come as a bit of a risk for the color-shy, but sometimes it just takes one push to wear it, and then you’ll be addicted to the mood that a splash of color can bring out. A cool color clash does exist in the fashion vocabulary and you’d be surprised how the colors you think might not go well together actually does! Here are some color combinations to try out this season:

  • Fuchsia and pale yellow
  • Fuchsia and persimmon orange
  • Emerald green and woodsy red
  • Purple and persimmon orange
  • Red and neutral pink
  • Midnight blue and teal

L-R: Jonathan Saunders, Gucci, Nina Ricci

Jonathan Saunders takes a silky emerald shirt and combines it with a burgundy light wool skirt with metallic accents on shoes. If you love this look, combine it with some mixed metal bangles or a long pendant necklace to top it off, like our unique Maupassant Copper Pendant Reflection Necklace!  The whole combination of textures and unlikely color scheme makes for a chic and unique ensemble!

The right color mix: red and pink with a baby yellow accent

Before seeing the rare combination of red, pink and yellow together, I would’ve never considered wearing the combo but girl shows us what it looks like when it’s done well. Pair the look with gold, brass or brown leather accents and you won’t fail to impress!

This blogger and model above is not afraid to take fashion risks and incorporates color blocking to it’s full effect. This might be considered a little overboard for street-style but it’s a refreshing reminder to not fear color! And also, don’t be afraid to wear accessories as colorful as the clothes featured this season. If bright colors are not your thing, jewelry is a great way to channel the look as well!
