All of us have our favourite colours that we keep going back to every now and then - perhaps we feel safer in them or we might simply be used to them. So much so that suddenly one day you realize that you have more than four dresses in the same colour! Don’t be stuck in a style rut, for you have a rainbow of colours to choose from. All you need to do is team up colours that gorgeously blend together to create a jaw dropping ensemble. Here are some fab colour combinations that are guaranteed to take your outfit to a whole new level!
1. Royal Blue + Red
Prettiness level: Royal! That is exactly what these two colours combined get you. The richness of royal blue matched with red instantly makes any outfit look more attractive. Whether you’re pairing your favourite pair of dark blue denims with a red top, or you’re teaming up a red skirt with a blue top - there is absolutely no way this combination won’t stand out.
2. Mint + Pink
Don’t pastel hues remind you of fairytales and falling in love? The quickest and easiest way to look like an eternal dream is to pair pastel with pastel. A refreshing mint paired with the prettiest pink hue brings a beautiful outfit to life. Channel the inner princess in you by wearing this combo and spread some magic!

3. Green + White
Don’t wear green with brown pants and look like a tree. Instead wear green with white and look like a superstar. Any shade of green combined with stark white is lovely! This combination is not too loud nor so subtle that it can be overlooked. Pair your favorite green top with white pants or a skirt.
4. Yellow + Cobalt
Another colour combination that makes any outfit pop is cobalt blue and yellow. The freshness of yellow contrasts with the electric cobalt beautifully. If you want to make a statement and not look boring, then this is the combination you should go for. It can do no wrong.
5. Gold + Coral
For a more festive or glamorous colour combination, try gold and coral. Needless to say, there is nothing better than gold to wear to an event or a festive occasion, but an all metallic outfit can make you look a little dull. Team gold with bright coral and voila! There you have it! Let the celebrations begin!
6. Sky Blue + Peach
This colour combination is so sweet and delicious that it reminds us of our favourite ice-cream! And who doesn’t love ice-cream? When in doubt, try out this colour combination. An instant pick-me-up for you as well as for your outfit. Works like magic, trust us. Ain’t that sweet?

8. Orange + Black
Crazy about Orange Is The New Black”? Why not try orange ON black! Black is one of the few colours that go so well with the bright orange tone, balancing the colour of the entire outfit perfectly. Fish out that orange top and your favourite pair of black pants - Hello, sunshine!
9. Lime Green + Black
Another colour that blends seamlessly with black is lime green. Like orange, lime too is an already vibrant colour that has a very pretty neon hue. Wearing these neon hues with something bright may make an outfit a bit too loud. Hence, the safest and easiest way to balance it out and make your outfit pop is by pairing it with darker hues like black.
