We are not in Kansas anymore! That is one of the most frequently quoted lines from a movie. That line is uttered when Dorothy arrives in a land full of color after being swept away from the dreary black and white landscape in Kansas. And while your wardrobe may not be so dreary that it inspires the song “Over the Rainbow,” wouldn’t it be nice to add some eye-popping color combinations to your wardrobe? So let’s journey into a new land filled with color. You can leave your ruby red slippers and dog Toto behind.
There are so many eye-popping, soul-stirring, mouth-watering color combinations to choose from, but here are a few ideas that you can put together depending on what you’re working with in your closet.
Khaki green and gold: There is a reason why the military has so many shiny medals, bars, and stars on their uniforms. It looks fierce as hell. For work, you can wear a khaki green pencil skirt pop it, a shimmery gold top, and gold high heels. Or for a night on the town, wear a khaki green jumpsuit with gold bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
This next color combination is very sleek and inspired by modern art. It is white, black, and bright blue. That bright royal blue makes this outfit a work of art even if you are just going to the gym for a workout. Think of wearing black and white print capri yoga pants with a royal blue yoga tank top. All eyes will be on you in the yoga class, and it won’t be because you can do a perfect headstand.
It is so rich and luscious, people will just want to eat you up in this color combo. It is a rich, dark burgundy with a light pink blush color. Imagine a pair of wide-leg burgundy pants with a light blush spaghetti strap tank top. It is so mouthwatering, it will make people think of homemade strawberry ice cream. The light pink blush is like the ice cream color, and the burgundy is like the deep red strawberries.
The next color combination is a little bright, but that’s alright (yes, that was meant to rhyme). It is orange and yellow. Only the boldest and the baddest can pull this off (oh yeah, and birthday clowns). However, imagine this: You have a huge presentation at work. You walk into the conference room with your laptop. You are wearing a yellow sheath dress with an orange cardigan over it, and the cardigan is belted around the waist. All eyes will be on you in that conference room, and you will look like the presenter/leader. For summer nights out, consider wearing orange shorts with a yellow top.
