Fresh Color Combos by Shannon

Tuesday, December 06, 2011
Hey, it's Shannon back again to talk about color! It is all about color this winter. The best way to do it is with fresh new color combos. You might feel a little weird if you aren't used to it. Have complete confidence in what you're wearing and you will look great!

Cobalt Blue & Mustard

This has to be one of my favorites! This is a bright combo so you need to be ready to own the look. For this look, I found a thrifted blouse for $3. I dyed the skirt using a combo of yellow and tan RIT dye.

Teal & Red

This color combo will be a great way to put a twist on the same old red for the holidays. I tried this look with red shoes from Target and my teal clutch from ASOS. LOVE!

Orange & Purple

This is a beautiful color combo! Try the combo in a subtle way. I did it with a sweater, floral blouse, and an amber pendent.

Black & Blue

This combo is pure class. This color combo was all over the runway in Louis Vuitton's fall show. An easy way to put these colors together is through accessories. Try a blue clutch or necklace with your favorite LBD.

Orange & Green

This color combo is great for everyday. It's bright but not so bright you will be uncomfortable. Here is the combo with a silk blouse and GAP cardigan sweater.


  1. Love every single one of these! Thanks for a great post Shannon! :)

  2. Ooh, LOVE the orange and green!

  3. Ve this post, thanks for the color mixing ideas! Can't wait to try the teal and red!

  4. I'm loving color combos for winter, I used to wear all black an grey outfits for cold months, but this year I'm so embracing color, cobalt and mustard are my faves, great inspiration here!
