Color Combos for Spring

Saturday, February 20, 2010

With just a little over a month left of winter, it's time to start thinking about spring clothes.
If you've been to the mall lately,  you'll see a lot of pale colors out there this season.  Although gorgeous, these pale pastel shades don't work for everyone.   However there are ways to incorporate these colors into your wardrobe without "washing" you out.  

Combine a pale neutral color such as beige with a bright color.

Layer shades of similar colors--start out with a pale top and add a darker jacket for depth.

Punch in color with accessories such as jewelry or a bright scarf.

Pull in color with a cardigan

Some color combinations to try:
  • Light gray with blue, coral, turquoise, or navy
  • Navy and coral or turquoise
  • Light pink with dark pink
  • Charcoal gray with light gray, cream or beige
