15 Color Combos to Try This Summer

Maybe it’s the blooming flowers and sunny skies, but there’s simply no better time of year to wear fun color combinations than spring and summer. Check out these 15 color combos to get you started on creative, colorful outfits this summer:

1. Primary Colors

Red, yellow, and blue are not only primary colors, but they also make a great outfit! Try it in any variation: navy, dark red, and mustard (pictured left) or a brighter yellow, orange red, and electric blue (pictured right).

2. Turquoise and Cobalt

These two ocean colors make the perfect pairing. Try boho accessories in a cognac brown to pull it together, or add nude or black shoes and accessories instead.

3. Pink and Red

Pink and red is unexpected, but some shades go together beautifully. If the floral skirt is too much, try this combo with dark blue or white denim, or wear a red skirt and pink top.

4. Mint and Pea Green

The perfect cardigan for a mint dress? The surprising answer is pea green. The various shades of blue and green in the necklace tie the blue/green side of the color wheel together.

5. Pink and Purple

Nothing says summer like hot pink and purple. The possibilities are endless — from a casual hot pink T-shirt and purple jeans, to variations on the outfits pictured.

6. Mustard and Camel

Mustard and camel are close color cousins, making them an excellent match. Throw in a pineapple graphic for good measure and to tie the two colors together.

7. Coral and Orange

Coral, orange, and red orange all live on the same side of the color wheel and play nicely together. Leave the shoes neutral to let the rest of the outfit shine, and a pop of turquoise jewelry is always welcome!

8. White on White

One of the hottest color trends this summer is … white! There has never been a better time to give white on white outfits a try. Choose pieces with texture like lace and pleats to add visual interest.

9. Cobalt, Electric Blue, and Yellow

Let printed pieces like this tribal skirt be your color guide when creating outfits. The cobalt blazer, electric blue top, and yellow necklace mimic the skirt and create an eye-catching color combo. Don’t have a printed skirt in your closet? Try it with yellow jeans or a skirt instead.

10. Red, White, and Blue

Certainly with the upcoming July 4th festivities, but red, white, and blue really is a great color combo to wear anytime of year. I love this work-appropriate collared shirt and pencil skirt combination.

11. Mustard, Black, and Brown

Neutrals like black and brown work well with just about any color, but when yellow is added to the mix, they look great together. Just a touch of turquoise keeps it from entering “bumblebee” territory!

12. Purple and Red

Purple and pink may be an obvious color combo, but consider a slight variation — purple and red — this summer. A solid purple top and red shorts, pants, or skirt is easier to pull of than you might think.

13. Mint, Baby Blue, and Citrine

If your closet is full of color, try holding up different colors next to each other to find combos that work, such as this mint cardigan, baby blue top, and citrine skirt. The blues and greens work harmoniously together.

14. Neon Yellow and Pink

Neon is still going strong this summer, so try mixing two shades together. Neon yellow looks great with a touch of neon blue or neon pink.

15. Mint and Pastels

Mint is a pastel itself, so other pastels are an easy combination to try. Combine mint with pale pink or pale yellow this summer.
